Matchbox style giftbox

Hi everyone

I hope you have all had a good day. I've been for a visit to the dentist....which is my very least thing to do.
I decided what was needed was a crafty project haha.

I've been wanting to do a matchbox style box now for a while. I was in Wilko today and in the sale I picked up a bunch of novelty erasers and other stationary goodies....best thing was I only spent £4! Wow.
I thought this would be ideal to put in kid's party bags as cute little gifts.

Here is how I made this:

Pacific point card for the box measuring 6" × 5"
Score on all 4 sides at 3/4" & 1 1/2" fold and burnish and cut as shown below, I used the 1/8" handheld punch to make a hole for the ribbon.

Attach ribbon ( I used melon mambo stitched ribbon) through the hole before constructing the box.
Melon mambo card measuring 5 1/4" × 2 5/8"
Score on long side at 1 3/8", 1 7/8", 3 3/4" & 4 3/8"
Fold and burnish and fold around the box and adhere together.
DSP panels to decorate one measuring 2 1/2" × 1 3/4" and two measuring 2 1/2" × 1/2"
Blossom bunch punch for flower
Pacific point enamel dot 

I hope you all like this dinky little project, I had fun putting it together. 

Don't forget to use the January hostess code if you order through my online store.
Thanks for looking

Happy crafting

Love Steffi xxx
