Yeah, that’s right! I made boxes for the ornaments! I was putting these ornaments with a personalized water bottle (stay tuned for that one!) in a gift bag, so I thought the ornament should be protected a bit.
Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More to the rescue!
I fired up my Gypsy and chose the square box. I made it as large as I could for a 12x12 mat. There was some open space so I figured instead of wasting paper I’d add some circle tags to use later. I will post those with the water bottles!
I cut the boxes and assembled them. I used the red tape for the adhesive, and I really like how strongly it holds. I haven’t purchased this in a store, but got some with some of my Cricut reward points one time. I like the stuff….very strong adhesive.
I had 12 ornaments so I chose 2 sheets of 6 papers from a DCWV stack I had picked up at Joann’s. The ornament fit in there perfectly. The box could not have been any smaller, for sure! I got lucky there! I should probably have inked the edges or something, but I'm not very good at that and half the time I end up making a mess instead of making a project look better. Perhaps that's one of the things I should work on for next year...inking edges (AND taking better photos...gotta get that camera working!!!)
Here are some of the boxes all stacked up. Nothing too fancy, but it’s just a little added touch.
Hope you enjoyed today’s project! Go and create something!
