Star Top Gift Box - Video Tutorial using Festival of Trees by Stampin' Up, Ideal for Jars.of Jam or Chutney

Star Top Gift Box - Video Tutorial using Festival of Trees by Stampin' Up, Ideal for Jars.of Jam or Chutney

Today I am sharing with you another box I came up for the homemade gifts I am making in the kitchen in preparation for Christmas.

This is box is going to house jars of my homemade Tomato Relish - a firm family favourite that goes pretty well with everything, I will share the recipe with your tomorrow.

I love the way the top forms a beautiful star shape and makes the box extra special.

The lovely tress along the bottom are made using the super value Festival of Trees stamp set- a bargain at only £14.00.

I just used one colour of ink, Mossy Meadow, the multi-tone trees are created by stamping more than once before reinking.

The sentiments come from the Jingle All The Way stamp set, stamped in Cherry Cobbler.

Thee box is held closed using the Garden Green Striped Ribbon.

I hope you enjoy the video and come back tomorrow to learn how to make the relish.

  1. I will check back for recipe, already started the Blackberry Gin. Love both boxes, beautiful.

    1. Thanks Sandi, glad you like the boxes and hope you enjoy the gin when it is ready x x

  2. You so remind me of me light yrs ago, when my girls were little and it helped fill in the long days when they were at school all day.
    Looking forward to the recipe later for the chutney. X

    1. Aw thanks Ros, just wish I actually had free days and didn't have to go to work, it does get in the way of crafting and cooking!

  3. Is the paper supposed to be 9 1/2 inches? Because at the end when we were punching the holes and folded over the last little flap you said to fold the 1/2 inch piece and punch through three layers. However, my flap was only 1/4 inch and my box was a little off, kind of funny shaped. Did anyone else have this issue, or am I just an idiot? Disappointed. :(
