 Christmas Gift Box Tutorial

Let's get crafting together!


Step 1: Upcyle a box of potato chips (which you will have previously emptied!) and wrap one sheet of Heartfelt Creations Candy Cane Cottage Christmas collection paper all around it. Trim the paper to the right size if necessary.

Diecut two of the Starry Night decorative borders and adhere at the top and bottom of the Pringles tube over the designer paper.

Step 2: Stamp the poinsettias and the holly leaves from the Christmas Poinsettia & Holly Cling Stamp set with black archival ink on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Next color the petals with red ink. Diecut with the coordinating die. 

Step 2A : Die cut the flowers with the coordinating die. Shape the flowers by using the 3D Shaping Mold placing your flowers stamp side down. You can give further shape with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit tools if you wish. Add stamens in the centers of the flowers.  Watch this video here to learn more about shaping these flowers.

Top Tip: Lightly spritz the poinsettias and holly leaves with water before running through mold through the diecutting machine.

Step 3: Tie together the wire stems of the stamens to make bouquets of Poinsettias. Place cheesecloth and sewing thread on your box.

Top Tip: Wrap the stamen wire stems with green floral tape and shape to add interest to the bouquets.

Step 4: Place your poinsettias and holly leaves over the cheesecloth and adhere using hot glue.

Top Tip: Use the Heat It tool to shrink hot glue strings.

Step 5: Add a ticket sentiment from the paper collection and some  glitter for the final touch.
