This is a fun little treat idea if you need something to gift this weekend. We made this in my Tags & Treats class and I gifted one to the mail lady. I’m trying to get my Christmas cards out. Yesterday I had 75 go out and today another 40. There will be one more batch going out on Monday. I’m not sure if any will arrive before Christmas but as long as I get them in the mail by Christmas eve I’m ok with that. Hopefully the recipient will be too.
This is the gable box turned into a crate style box. Inside I have some festive cake balls. I stuck with a Red, White and Silver theme for this one. It’s a bit hard to see in the catalog but the Lustrous White Gable boxes have a shimmer to them – they aren’t just plain white.
- Lustrous White Mini Gable Box
- 2×8 Cellophane bag
- Silver Glimmer Paper
- Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon
- 1/8″ Solid Real Red Ribbon
- Whisper White card stock
- Real Red Ink
- Dashing Deer Bundle – Dashing Deer stamp set + Detailed Deer Thinlits die
- Big Shot Die cutting machine
- Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets
I used some red striped paper straws to create the handle. So that you don’t tear the box use a hole punch the size of the straw at the top of the little slot. Mine was just a standard size hole punch like you get from the office supply store. And I used some scotch tape to hold the little cello bag shut after I put the cake balls inside. Enjoy!
