Hi there! I will show you a giftbox I made with wonderful papers from Maja Design. It is not Christmassy at all, but I will give you the tutorial on how I made the simple box; and who knows, maybe you want to try to make a box like this in a Christmassy style?! :)

1

Cut out two papers measuring 30 x 7 cm. Then fold both at 6 cm.

2

Then fold at 10,5 and 21.

3

Make cuts like this.

4

Then start with the lid on the box. Cut out two papers measuring 4 x 30 cm. Also here fold at 1 cm first.

5

Then fold the other way at each 10,6. This is because the lid has to be a bit larger than the bottom part of the box.

6

Make the cuts.

7

Put the parts together like this.

8

And this.

9

Cut out parts to fasten inside the bottom of the box and the lid. (10,4 x 10,4 and 10,5 x 10,5).

10

Like this.

11

Then use the background die to cut out the bottom part and one on the lid. I use a harder cardboard for this.

12

I also have painted the edges with white Gesso.

After putting the parts together and decorate them with beautiful Maja Papers, I have decorated the box on the top with different elements made with DooHickey dies from Magnolia (Vintage Box vol 3). I will show you some details:

I just felt I had to decorate the whole box with butterflies:)

The lovely photos and letters are also Maja Design papers.
