Today I thought I would share this cute little gift box that I made using some Cream Polkadot Pattern Paper, Black Cardstock, Stampin Up Scallop Polkadot Ribbon and a cute little Poinsettia Button Charm!
I made the lid like I've made many a gift box lid - just type in gift box templates online and you'll be given a vest array to choose from - BUT before I secured each of the edges, I simply took my scallop punch and created the border you see above! As a tip, start your punching along the centre of each side and hopefully you'll end up with a relatively even scallop along your lid!
You might find when you are securing the corners that the pattern papers don't line up exactly, but I just took out my scissors and evened things up a little!
Don't you just love that Scallop Polkadot Ribbon from Stampiin Up! It's just gorgeous! I couldn't resist getting it in both the black & a Christmas red colour! I'm a sucker indeed when it comes to good quality decorative ribbons!
The little Poinsettia Charm was a little button that I simply cut the loop off the back of and then glued all the pieces together before adhering it to my box with a couple of gluedots. It was the perfect finishing touch I think!
Have a great day!
