Michelle's Secret Box!


We hope you had a great weekend!  We're back today with a great project from Michelle... Let's  hear from Michelle and take a look at her fun and secretive project!

Supply List for Secret Box

Featured Collection: Santa’s Workshop from Doodlebug Design Inc.
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Patterned Papers: Doodlebug Design Inc.
Stickers: Doodlebug Design
Alphabet Stickers: Making Memories
Ink: ColorBox Chalk
Glitter Glue: Stickles by Ranger
Punches: EK Success
Other: Buttons, Card Envelope


Here is the secret box in the foreground along with the envelope gift bags in the background.
You can open the box to reveal three trays that can house candies and other fun little gifts for the recipient.

The box opens up 180 degrees with both sections remaining attached to each other.
I decorated the four sides around the box with scalloped circle punches, stickers and patterned papers. I made a paper bow for the top.

There is a written tutorial and a video tutorial in the link under my supply list for Splitcoaststampers' site. I did find the construction of this to be a bit complex and time consuming in order to be precise so everything lines up and folds evenly. If you want something quick and easy, I'd suggest the mini gift bags. If you have more time and want something with more of a wow factor, then choose this project.

Thanks, Michelle!  This is a great project, what a fun way to give a gift!  The box is as much of a gift as what would be inside - I know my little boy would love keeping his toys in this box all year long!

We'll see you back here tomorrow for a great stamping tutorial from Michelle!
