Kraft box with Season of Style washi tape



I love these Kraft boxes, because they’re a really cool size, shape and colour – and they’re so cheap! They’re only £2.75 for four, so it’s really not worth going to the bother of trying to make them at that price.

For the Creative Tour, I wanted to jazz one up with washi tape and decided to do things a little differently. I wanted to punch holes in the box and have the washi tape showing through. This was no mean feat because, as you know, punches don’t have a particularly long reach. So I dismantled the box and punched in as far as I could. There was only one section where I couldn’t manage it – on all other sides, I punched two holes.

Next I made panels for inside the box and put strips of washi tape on them, to show through the holes.

The tag is made using the Chalk Talk framelits and the bow is that lovely new Cherry Cobbler ribbon from the Autum/Winter catalogue. A few rhinestones added a bit of Christmas bling.
