Hey there! I'm back again today with a companion piece to my Sparkle of the Season card from yesterday, a Thanksgiving two-four-six-eight box!
I learned how to make these boxes years ago (I just celebrated my 19th anniversary as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator on November 11th) They are super simple to make!
Dimensions are 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 2", 4", and 6" along the 8 1/2" side, then scored at 2" across the long end.
After scoring, then cut and fold:
Pinch the top:
Then flatten to add the closure you prefer.
For this box I used a hand-held punch to make a notch in the folds to wrap the Linen Thread around.
I used three 16-inch lengths of Linen Thread, tied in a knot in the center to wrap around the box tightly and to tie in a loopy bow.
I created the mini-wreath with stamped & cut images from Sparkle of the Season Bundle in Mossy Meadow and Cajun Craze on Cinnamon Cider, along with die-cut Gold Metallic Specialty Paper. I cut a small circle with a Layering Circle Die to adhere the wreath "branches".
I used the same Tasteful Labels die from yesterday's card, but I made the label smaller by cutting it twice with the same die. I stamped the sentiment, cut once with the banner label die. then lined up the stitching again on the longer end and held it all in place with a Post-It-Note while I cranked it through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine a second time.
I added a few Gilded Gems for some sparkle.
These boxes are perfect Thanksgiving table favors. They will hold and small handful of candy corn or of course chocolate!
