Hang Your Stocking Christmas Card and Gift Box

Hello Peaches! Are you ready for another great 3-D project?! Now, keep in mind that I'm still new to them and still learning. I know there are lots of great tutorials out there on how to make gift boxes so mine will be a little more brief, but I'll show you how easily you can pair any gift box with the gorgeous "Hang Your Stocking" stamp set and dies for a real "wow" look.



First, I started with an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of thick Whisper White. I chose the thicker cardstock because its sturdier and will hold better. You will cut it down to a square shape (8 1/2 x 8 1/2). Then you will score @ 2 inches on each side. See picture below:



Next, cut on the indicated lateral lines below:


Before assembling your lid, you will need to stamp any images you plan to have on the lid as this becomes difficult later without a solid surface. I used the holy leaf and berries to create my background. Then I cut a piece of Emerald Envy cardstock at 11 x 1/2 inches for the belly band and warped it to find where it would need to be scored, marked it and scored those areas for easy folding.

For the bottom part of the box, I did the same thing as I did with the top except I made the measurements an 1/8th of an inch smaller. To finish off my box, I added my stocking, a few trimmed gold snowflakes, and some gold sequin trim.

For the card, I based my layout to be similar to my box, except I added a few pine sprigs. You could add some mini ornaments, ribbon, or whatever you like. I just love the traditional colors of these projects. They really put me in the mood for Christmas! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you next post!
