Rose Salve Gift Box & Card

Today’s coordinating projects feature products from the new online exclusive Flowering Zinnias Suite! I’ve created a rose salve gift box with a coordinating card to show off this beautiful suite! Don’t these colors just scream happy to you? I can’t help but smile!

This gift box is sized to fit either a C.O. Bigelow Rose Salve or a Smith’s Rosebud Salve – they’re both the same size. I found the C.O. Bigelow Rose Salve many moons ago at Bath & Body Works and I found the Smith’s Rosebud Salve recently in a 4-pack on Amazon:

This is a great gift idea for someone you love! These salves are great for cuticles, elbows, lips, and other rough areas!

This gift box has a unique closure without using a lot of cardstock:

I added extra Designer Series Paper to the back “wall” to give this box a really nice finish. I punched two holes for a perfect ribbon bow embellishment! Here’s another angle of this cute box:

Here’s the template for reference (not to scale):


  • Cardstock – 7-7/8″ x 4-1/8″
    • Score along the 4-1/8″ side at 1″ on both sides
    • Score along the 7-7/8″ side at 5/8″, 1-5/8″, 3-3/4″, and 4-3/4″
    • Score along the 7-7/8″ side at 6-7/8″, but stop at the horizontal score line and skip scoring the middle section, flip & repeat
  • Cardstock (sentiment) – 3/4″ x 2″
  • Designer Series Paper:
    • 2″ x 2″ (1 pc)
    • 2″ x 7/8″ (3 pcs total; 1 pc – landscape, 2 pcs – portrait)
    • 3″ x 2″ (2 pcs – portrait)


For this thank you card, I just let the Designer Series Paper do the work! The zinnias are “fussy cut” from the Flowering Zinnias Designer Series Paper, and by “fussy cut” I mean I used my Brother Scan-n-Cut! The bright, bold colors of this card are made even more beautiful by adding the Basic White layers to really make it pop!

This card was so quick & easy to put together thanks to the beautiful products in the Flowering Zinnias Suite!


  • Card Base – 11″ x 4-1/4″, scored and folded in half at 5-1/2″
  • Basic White layer – 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″
  • Designer Series Paper layer – 4-1/2″ x 3-1/4″
  • Sentiment Strip – 3/4″ x 3-1/2″

  3. Hi Julie,
    As usual, a great project for the kids (my school kids), and me of course.
    I have been seeking out other projects from your web site. I hope you don’t
    mind. The kids plus the kid in me really like the projects I prepare for them.
    Just a note, I still haven’t gotten back to making cards, but with helping
    the kids make the boxes, I have that itch to make cards again. I don’t want
    to do cards yet while I volunteering for the 5th graders at my neighborhood
    school. Thanks for the project.
