SDC 151 Boxes

Over at Stampotique Designers blog this weeks challenge is from Arwen, she says

What could be better than to give a loved one something?

To present a gift effectively, I make nice boxes to do so.

Be it for jewellery, candy, books, etc. - for all you can make great boxes.

But the box itself is a wonderful gift idea.

Show me your boxes!

I'm curious about your boxes and whether it will be given away for something or will it be used to preserve things?

Today is my birthday and this is the box i made for my OH to give me.


It is the first time i have made one of these types of boxes, there are many mistakes which i know you will spot lol.

My next one will be much better.

Thanks for dropping by, looking forward to your comments.



  1. I didn't notice any mistakes. Shhhh... :) I think your box is fantastic. So many little lovely bits to look at. Well done!

  2. Wow love your box, best thing is when it's to oneself you can put all the stuff in you like and know the person getting it is going to love it - fabulous make xxx

  3. Woo Hoo, Happy BIrthday to you MOH!!! Hope you've had a fabulous day :D
    Great box that your hubby gave to you there :D I see no mistakes at all, it's gorgeous :D xx

  4. Love your entry. Is this another ATB? Is there a die cut for these?

    1. Hi
      This size box is a 4x4 inch and was made with the WRMK Box Board, imho this is an ATB because it doesn't fold flat.

      The Eileen Hull Sizzix dies come in 2 different bigz dies, one which has a larger box & the more versatile die which has 3 diff sizes. If you are in the UK try Country View Crafts for these dies, free p&p & if not in stock there is an option to be emailed when they do come back in.

      These two dies are so popular & quite often sold out, hope you get yours very soon.

      Thank you for your comment:-) xxx
