Scroll Works Gift Boxes

A quick and easy gift box today! Decorated with the lovely Joy Holly stamp from the Scrolls Work Merry Christmas Range. 

All you need is a some patterned paper, your stamps and inks and any extras you want to add extra touches to the box.

The stamp measures just under 2.5 by 4 inches so the box measurements are designed to match the stamp size.

I’ve cut out two rectangles from the patterned paper, one for the lid (6 1/8 by 4 5/8 inches) and one for the box itself (8 by 6 7/16). 

Score a one inch border on each side of the lid paper and a two inch border on each side of the box paper. Score a diagonal line in each corner of the border on both pieces of papers.

Fold each score line and smooth out with a bone folder, or ruler, so that the pattern is on the outside. The corners should fold inwards and can be stuck to the walls with double-sided tape.

I used distress inks to decorate and add a vintage feel to my box.

For the stamp I stamped it with sepia Archival ink, cut it out and then added colour to the Holly and berries with the distress inks. 

I stamped the image again in red and cut out the diamond-shaped sentiment then stuck it to the image.

I added glitter highlights to the image.

Then covered the diamond sentiment with Glossy Accents.

There you have it a super quick gift box for that last minute wrapping!

Hope you get all your wrapping done.

    I don't come by very often, Kim, sorry! I too have a vast number of blogs on my list and it's so hard to visit and comment regularly but having made a recent trip through you blog and seen all of your latest makes, I had to leave at least one comment and this little box really jumped out. It's gorgeous! Hope you had a lovely Christmas, warmest wishes, Lesley
