Hi everyone! It’s going to be a fun week at Authentique. Hope you’ll join us all this week as Authentique Paper and Scor-Pal team up to bring you tons of inspiration using Authentique Paper and Scor-Pal products!
These flap boxes are perfect for packaging relatively thin gift items, like CD’s and DVD’s, books, jewelry, photos, or gift cards. The smallest box was even perfect for wrapping up a bit of cash for my son’s recent 18th birthday. Once you learn the basic technique, you can easily change up the size of the box to hold any number of items. Just the size of the starting paper will vary…the process is the same. I have the complete step-by-step directions up on the Authentique blog, if you’d like to learn more.
The finished boxes look great with the flaps side-up, like on my larger box, or down. Once my boxes were constructed, I had fun adding belly-band paper strips and twine ties. Then I layered in a few extra details from the Natural embellishments.
The smaller box is made from one of the papers from the 6×6 Bundle and is dressed with a journaling card and word strip cut from the Enhancements 12×12 sheet. I simply trimmed the round quote block from the paper and adhered it directly to the box, while the word strip was added with foam adhesive for a bit of dimension. Buttons and a sticker from the Elements Sticker sheet finish things off.
The larger box was crafted from 12×12 paper, and got a swing tag made from another journaling card from the Enhancements sheet. I added more buttons and Elements stickers and lace and machine stitched for extra embellishment. A large beautiful flower from Petaloo adds a final touch.
