Hello Honey Bee friends! Today I’m sharing two versions of gift card boxes I made with the Vintage Gift Card Box dies and the Christmas Lights Vintage Gift Card Box Add-on stamps and dies. These cute boxes are perfect for your gift cards with lots of room to include some sweet treats! I also custom died ribbons to coordinate with my colors! Read on for the details.
This box with the blue trim took a bit longer than the other box simply because I heat embossed the stamps from the Christmas Lights Vintage Gift Card Box Add-on stamp set. I used the pine branch stamp, one ornament, and some of the snowflakes in the set along with two from the Let It Snow stamp set. All were stamped with clear embossing ink. I heat embossed the images after sprinkling on silver embossing powder and some green sparkle embossing powder from my stash. Then I cut out the heat embossed images with the coordinating Christmas Lights dies and Let It Snow dies.
Next I used B02, B01, and B000 Copic markers to color the ornament and the bow. To custom die the ribbon I placed the ribbon into a small glass dish. Then I added drops of B02 and B01 Copic re-inkers. With a disposable glove on my hand I smooshed the ribbon until the ink was distributed and used my heat tool to dry it.
I tied the ribbon around the box and adhered the heat embossed elements with glue and foam tape. After I used a hole punch to punch a hole at the top of the ornament, I tied it and the snowflake around the bow with baker’s twine. Finally, I added a few coordinating pearls from the Winter Pearl Stickers set.
This next box has some patterned paper from the Holiday Wishes paper pad that I die cut with the rectangle die in the Christmas Lights Add-on set. I also die cut the leaves and berries with dies in the Lovely Layers: Candy Cane Honey Cuts from colored cardstock.
I added Snowfall Grit Paste to the edges of the leaves and set them aside to dry. I died more crinkle ribbon by spraying it with Tart Cranberry Distress Mica Stain. I used a disposable glove again and held it with my reverse tweezers while I dried it with my heat tool.
This cute Vintage Gift Card box is large enough to hold at least a dozen candy kisses and your gift card too!
These are so great to have on hand for those last-minute gifts! I hope your holiday season is filled with joy and happiness! Merry Christmas! See you next week ~ Carol
