Mini Gift Box

Ghirardellibox I have a thick folder of templates, patterns and other 3-D items that I always have good intentions of creating.  The other day I came across this pattern I had filed away nearly 6 months ago for a Ghirardelli chocolate box.  It's originator is Jen over at iheart2stamp. Jen is super talented and has great projects and tutorials.  The template for this box is posted on her blog. 

I made the Halloween box first thinking how cute this would be for some of the neighborhood kids.  While these are small boxes, they are big enough to fit several pieces of candy.  If you are giving these to "big kids" and want to add the Ghirardelli chocolates they were intended for, they fit 5 pieces.  The box is 3.25" long, 2.25" tall and 2.25" deep.  Plenty of room for any goblin's favorite treat.  I used Stampin' Up!'s Ghostly Greetings designer paper to cover the box and for accents used silver brads along the edge of the lid.  I can't say I have ever used 14 brads on one project before, but once I started with them, I really needed to continue.  To make a lot of these might be a bit costly, but I do like how it turned out.  For a final touch, I added Tangerine Tango ribbon.

The other box is more feminine.  I made this for Breast Cancer Awareness month and will give it to my friend who is currently under-going treatment.  I have a small gift that fits perfectly inside. It uses the Bella Rose designer paper and Pink Pirouette card stock.  Black card stock was used for accent.

That's it for today.  Thanks for stopping by.
