Butterfly Closure Gift Box, Video Tutorial using Stampin' Up Products

Butterfly Closure Gift Box, Video Tutorial using Stampin' Up Products

Each month I send out a little Thank You pack of goodies to all of the lovely people that have shopped with me the previous month.

Choosing the goodies to send and designing a lovely box to hold them is absolutely one of my favourite things to do each month.

If you'd like to see what each person recieved this month you can scroll down further to watch the video where I reveal all, as well as showing you the box itself.

The larger box is simply made using the envelope punch board, the special part is the little box attached to the belly band. 

The little butterfly decorating the band also acts as a super closing mechanism - it is a little hard to explain how it works but if you watch the video, all should become clear.

The belly band and the box itself are stamped all over using the Reason for the Season stamp set - not just for Christmas.

I used three different colours, one to match the larger box, Cajun Craze in this case and then two complimenting colours, Always Artichoke and Delightful Dijon here. 

I did however make at least one box in all of the Regals.

Here they all are lined up like a rainbow.

Eva's favourite was the Garden Green - and yes I was very nervous of her waving a pen around so close to the boxes!

If you would like to see how to make them - the video is below. I know a lot of the recipients are waiting for this video.

  1. Hi Caroline, I was lucky enough to receive one of these beautiful gifts, and I absolutely love it. Not only is it wonderful to receive the hostess gifts, but the way you package them up is amazing and I am so grateful for all the effort you put in to this. I have just enjoyed watching the video, and I hope to have a go at making one of these little boxes myself - that closure is so inventive. I will be adding the Reason for the Season stamp set to my next order, I wasn't taken with that stamp set until I saw the beautiful flowers on this project, it just looks so different, so thanks to opening my eyes to this set. Thank you for all your hard work, I really appreciate it. Best wishes, Karen x
    Oh, just to point out, one of the scoring marks for the short side on your blog is wrong - it should read 3 1/8" not 8 7/8" - see I do pay attention! - though it doesn't always mean I get it right when I am actually scoring ;)

  2. Beautiful, so creative and generous. Thank you for sharing your talents.

  3. Beautiful project. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Hi Caroline, I just ordered from you even though I'm the other end of the country, after finding you on YouTube - and I made your Relish! You are doing a great job x

  5. Hi Caroline, love this box, I have used over half of my Cajun craze card stock as its such a lovely colour. Can I ask if the board you used is the same as on weekly deals this week?

  6. Hi Caroline, have really been enjoying your gift packaging projects. This one is especially inventive. I would definitely like to know the dimensions etc. for making the larger box. Thanks for all you share.
