Farmhouse Christmas Gift Box with Canvas Corp


Happy Sunday Paper Peeps! Today I’m sharing the second project that was created especially to be featured in CardMaker Magazine special Happy Holidays Edition.  They requested a home decor item, a card and a gift box.  I’ll bet you can guess what coming up in the next post lol. Anyhoo I’m using the beautiful patterned papers from Canvas Corp Brands Farmhouse Christmas along with ribbon trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and flowers from Petaloo.

It's a Wonderful Life Gift BoxYou can see how this box coordinates with the canvas frame from the previous post.  I used the Farmhouse Christmas Tags as a large label for the front and attached it by adding 4 silver eyelets to the corners and running twine through.

It's a Wonderful Life Gift Box5This is a more personal way to present a gift card. I measured and there’s plenty of room inside for a small treat as well. Maybe a small wrapped cookie or tiny seasonal chocolates???

I’ve created a template for this box and you can find it as well as a complete supplies list in the special Happy Holidays Edition of CardMaker Magazine on craft store shelves now. I am told by my local peeps that you can also find it at Target and Meijer. Or wherever special interest publications are sold.


Okay that’s all for me. Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G
