Lookie, Lookie!!! Aren't these GIFT BOXES just the bees knees???

These are just the right size for gift cards, jewelery or goodies!! Go on over to Splitcoaststampers and check out the tutorial by Angie Tieman and a video by Beate Johns to see how to make these adorable boxes using SU's die cut Top Note.

This is the inside....see???? All kinds of room for goodies/gifts!!!

This was made using Stampin Up!'s Ornament punch (more info below). Do you like it???

This last one was made with some cardboard. First I ran the real red cardstock through the Big Shot with the embossing folder "Petals A Plenty", colored with a white gel pen. Used Crystal Effects to glue it to the cardboard. Then ran it through the die cut. On the other two I just used two pieces of cardstock and cut at the same time, but with this one, I did the top and the bottom individually because it was thicker because of the cardboard.
