Christmas Table Setting Gift Boxes - Using Bigz Pro Milk Carton Die

Each year I make gift boxes for my bosses christmas table, they are used instead of place names and crackers and contain a personal pressie!

This year these are in the shape of milk cartons....

The cartons are not glued... as they need to put the presents inside the boxes they need to be able to open and close them so i have held them shut with a cute little bulldog clip which is adorned with a gingham bow and tag

The snowflakes are cut from gold pearl card using sizzix originals snowflakes #3 die

names were printed on the computer then cut into a tag shape using a nestabilities die.....

.....ties on with my fave stampin' up! gingham ribbon which they have sadly discontinued :o(

I had ran out of red gems, so improvised by punching holes using my cropodile from glittered self adhesive foam, I am going to get myself another pack of this lovely stuff (from hobbycraft) as it is proving to be realy usefull and the fact that it is die cutter friendly is a massive plus!

there were 10 boxes in total, all the same apart from the names!!
This is a fab die! It cuts all in one and you just fold and glue together.... Simples!
