Arts & Crafts, crafting, Handmade, Handmade Boxes



It’s the first day of my holidays today … a whole week off work 🙂

That means a whole week of crafting and I am really looking forward to it! I had thought about having a sort out in my shed, and de-stashing stuff I will no longer use, but I’ll see how things go and if it happens I will be sure to show a before and after 😉

This morning I was reading through a card making magazine that my hubby bought me on my birthday last month and there was a cute little gift box template in there, so I decided to give it a go..

hello box  1

Supplies used:-

  • Heavyweight Cardstock (bought it at the Ross Papercraft show last year)
  • Stampin Up Patterned Paper
  • Bazzill Pink Textured Cardstock
  • Hello die from Clearly Besotted Stamps
  • Stampin Up Circle Punch
  • Stampin Up Flower Punch
  • Woodware Circle Punch

Quick and easy to make, and it would also be great to fill with easter goodies too… might have another go later on 😉

As always, thank you for popping round, and see you soon, lots of crafting and blogging to be done this week!

Sarah 🙂
