Slider Opening Gift Box - Video Tutorial using Moroccan Nights by Stampin' Up

Slider Opening Gift Box - Video Tutorial using Moroccan Nights by Stampin' Up

I am so excited to be sharing this box with you today. I am really pleased with the way it turned out.

I have been seeing a lot of slider cards all over the internet recently. Stampin' Up have brought our some fabulous products to really simplify those WOW cards and I had an idea floating around in my head about using the slider idea as a clasp on a box - well, today's project is the culmination of those thoughts.


The box opens by sliding the circular clasp on the top to one side - it might sound complicated but it is really simple and really lifts a simple gift box to be something special.

You can watch my video HERE to see just how it works and how easy it is to create. 



I've decorated the box using the Moroccan Nights Stamp Set. This set has been calling my name for a little while and I was doing well with resisting but finally temptation got the better of me. 

I am not disappointed!



I love the intricate patterns and think they look amazing heat embossed in Gold here. 


I orignially made the box using Emerald Envy card stock, as you'll see in the video, I then made another using Elegant Eggplant. I am not sure which one I prefer - I think they are both very elegant and hopefully would make the most simple of gift really something special.

HERE is the video tutorial if you'd like to make your own version. If you do give it a go, I'd love to see your intepretation. 

If you would like to order any Stampin' Up products click HERE and head over to my online store or get in touch directly, it would be my pleasure and honour to help.

  1. Thanks for the tutorial. They are both beautiful. Even though purple is my favorite color, I think the green looks very elegant.

    1. Thanks Lisa - I keep changing my mind as to which looks best.

  2. Turn the black box upside down so the cut out will not fall down thru the hole

    1. Yup - I thought of that just after I finished filming. I might add a note to say that to the video x x

  3. WOW Caroline this is stunning! I was so excited after watching your video that I quickly ran to my craft room and rummaged through my crafting stash to make one myself. I did not have any of the stamps or the new label punch, but made do with the retired word window punch, mosaic madness stamp set and happy day stamp set to come up with something similar. My daughter was suitably impressed ( hard to do when they are teenagers lol). I'll have to make more as the cover on mine gapes a bit, it doesn't stay closed tight with the clasp, having said that it still looks fabulous. Thank you so very much for sharing and making an easy to follow video tutorial. Have a great weekend. Cheers Donna Z :)

    1. Thanks Donna - really pleased to hear you gave it a go. I found that the crease lines need to be sharp and if you move the clasp back slightly towards the centre it stays tightly closed x x

    1. Sorry to hear it is gaping :( I'm not sure if the word window is bigger - I never had that punch. Make sure your score lines are very tightly creased and try moving the clasp back slightly towards the centre - hopefully that will help a little x x

  6. Fabulous box. While watching I was trying to tell you to turn the black box upsidedown for support, but I see someone beat me to it in letting you know. Thanks for sharing.
