Because I had a small multi-part gift to put in my boxes, I wanted to figure out a way to present two of them together. I came up with an idea to make a "tray" for them, and here is how I did it:
I started with a piece of 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Emerald Envy cardstock and scored 1-1/8" on all 4 sides:
Fold on the score lines and adhere the tabs inside to create your box:
Then I simply took a 1" strip (actually 2 strips of 12" DSP) of Presents and Pinecones Designer Series Paper and ran it around the outside of the tray:
Once my boxes were inside, I wrapped them up with more of the ribbon, and added a tag.
I finished off my boxes with two die-cut phrases: "for you" and "enjoy" both come in the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits; I cut them out of Real Red and glued them on the front.
I hope you get some of these Gift Boxes--they're great for gift-giving any time of year!
