Inspiration Blog Hop with Authentique and Scor-Pal

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!

Many of you know by now of my love for pretty packages, and that I’m always on the lookout for new ways to creatively wrap up gifts. So today I’m sharing another fun packaging idea, a pair of small envelope-flap gift boxes created with Authentique’s new Natural collection. These little boxes are sooo quick and easy to put together, with the help of Scor-Pal’s amazing scoring tools and just a few scrappy supplies.

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 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.
