I am a big fan of making my own gift boxes, packages, and wraps. Homemade wrapping just seems so much more personal than store-bought, and I love being able to customize my gifts to perfectly fit each recipient for whatever occasion may be at hand. Recently I came across a really cute box idea on Pinterest made from oval die cuts, and I was immediately smitten. Although I don’t have any oval dies at home I was able to recreate a very similar look using something I do have on hand, the Framelits Hearts die set.
This sweet little box is so quick and easy, and requires only a few basic supplies to put together. I love that I was able to adapt the project to use dies that I already have in my collection. Don’t have oval or heart dies? Try using any larger circle, label, or frame dies you do own. The same basic process will work with any number of shapes and sizes.
This is BasicGrey’s beautiful new Grand Bazaar collection, by the way. So bright and happy and bold and exotic, all wrapped into one. And I have the complete step-by-step tutorial for my Hearts Framelits gift box up on the Sizzix blog, if you’d like to learn more.
On this special day, I want to take a moment to say to all our veterans and servicemen and women, whether at home or abroad, active, reserves, or retired…
Thank you! Thank you for your duty, sacrifice and selflessness….you will not be forgotten.
Happy Memorial Day
