Hi there blog friends. I've been thinking on a gift item I can whip up quickly and embellish to give to friends. I always like to have something up my sleeve that I can accomplish without having to buy more supplies or having to run out to the store, or have to reinvent the wheel. I keep packets of potpourri at home. You can normally get them at places like Pier One, World Market or Bed, Bath and Beyond. The box I buy has 8 packets in it so I figured I'd make a holder for two of them. I get four gifts from each box and mmmmm . . . they smell so good!!
The neat thing is that you can embellish the box a different way every time and the ODBD Scripture Collection are a perfect option. So I'm going to show you how to make the basic box!!
Using 12"x12" paper, score at the following intervals:
1/4", 3/4", 5 1/2", 6 1/2", 11 1/4", 11 3/4" (as shown below)
Rotate paper 90 degrees and score at the following intervals:
2 1/2", 3", 10", 10 1/2" (as shown below)
Make the cuts as shown in the picture below:
Cut top with one border punch and bottom with the other border punch as shown below:
Assemble as shown!
Now you can embellish to your hearts desire!! For mine I used the following supplies:
|SUPPLIES I USED|
|Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs - Scripture Collection 6|
Paper: The Girls Paperie, Bazzill
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Accessories: Spellbinders Parisian Motifs, Spellbinders Classic Circle LG, Spellbinders Petite Scalloped Circles LG, Spellbinders Parisian Accents, Prima Pearls, Recollections Flower, May Arts Silk Ribbon
I hope you enjoy!!
