8th Day Of Christmas 2016 – Giftbox Punch Board Snowflake Box Tutorial


Welcome to the 8th Day of Christmas

Day 8’s project is a lovely sized gift box and it’s made using our gift box punch board. These are so easy to make and you can make and decorate a bunch of them in advance. They will even store flat and when you are ready to fill them, you just need to stick the sides together.

Now I didn’t exactly follow the instructions on the board. I kept with the XL measurement, but I left out the diagonal line and trimmed where I needed with my snips. It’s all explained on the video tutorial.

As the box opening is at the bottom, I wouldn’t put anything too heavy in there – just in case. A mug would be ok, or in my case – some handmade crochet mittens.


Finished Size: 4 x 4 x 4″

Box: one 12×12 Cardstock – Score on the XL line and miss out the diagonal score line. Score the other two as instructed

Mats: 3.75″ – You will need five of these

Thank you for visiting day 3’s project. If you have enjoyed today, please subscribe to my blog on the right and/or my YouTube channel so you don’t miss the rest of the series.

Hostess Code Club – do you like free gifts?

All orders over £25 (before shipping & handling) & using this month’s Hostess Code at checkout will receive a Hostess Gift from me. If your order is over £150, please do not use this code – you can claim your own Stampin’ Rewards.
All online orders under £150 will collect Stampin’ Rewards (free product) throughout the month. Your order is processed as normal, with it being delivered to your house as usual, so nothing changes there. But, at the end of the month, I close off the code and work out how many people have placed orders and divide the total Stampin’ Rewards between them all, making sure that everyone has exactly the same products.

However, the more people who join the code, the higher the rewards go because everyone is pulling together towards a common goal!
