Snowflake box

Sick of Christmas stuff yet? Sick of Old Olive and Real Red? I’m not, as you can tell!

I demoed this little box at a workshop last week – it went wrong, as these things do from time to time (ok, a lot of the time) and I forgot to put the ribbon join under the snowflake, which would have been far more sensible.

It’s the same box template as Saturday’s sample but with the sides pushed in and the front and back stapled together. Obviously, you need to remember to put your goodies inside before sealing!

Click here for the template - it's very easy, just made from a sheet of A5 cardstock. 

I made this with one of my new stamp sets, Best Wishes and More – it’s a fab all-occasion set with a flower, leaf, bird and snowflake plus a few greetings, too.

Stamps: Best Wishes & More
Cardstock: Old Olive, Real Red, Whisper White
Ink: Old Olive, Real Red
Accessories: 5/8” Grosgrain Ribbon – Real Red, Red gingham ribbon, household staple
