Faceted Gift Box for the InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s December Blog Hop! We have a fun Blog Hop theme today – Wrap it Up! The hop is filled with projects that are perfect for this time of year – everything from gift-packaging ideas to bundling up to stay warm. We are excited to share our creations with you today.  After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

My project for today is a faceted gift box!

Here’s a different view:

And a couple of side views:

And here’s what the top looks like:

This box has a magnetic closure and has quite a bit of room inside for treats or a gift! I saw a similar idea for this box on Pinterest by Florinda at Art and Choco using the Gift Bag Punch Board, but I decided to make it my own and just use the Simply Scored instead (my favorite tool!).

Magnets – I purchase my magnets from Spider Magnets on eBay – great prices and fast international shipping! For this project I used 8x1mm magnets.

This project features the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper and other silver elements like the Silver Metallic-Edge Ribbon, Silver Foil Paper, and silver heat embossing. This would be beautiful to dress up your holiday gifts or to take as a host gift or as a table favor for a New Year’s Party!

Here’s my video tutorial:

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Year of Cheer Specialty DSP – 8-1/2″ x 5″
    • Score along the 5″ (short) side at 1-1/4″, 2-1/2″, and 3-3/4″
    • Rotate clockwise and score only down to the 1st horizontal score line at 2″, 4″, and 6″ and score all the way down at 8″
    • Rotate 180 degrees and score only down to the 1st horizontal score line at 2-1/2″, 4-1/2″ and 6-1/2″
    • Score diagonally both ways across the center section where the short vertical scorelines meet the horizontal scorelines as shown on this template:
