A Gift Box by Gerry van Gent

Happy Sunday Sizzix friends!
Today I want to share with you a gift box
which I created using a few new Sizzix dies.

657900 Sizzix Big Shot Machine
658520 Sizzix Sizzlits Dec. Strip Die Sew Cute
658521 Sizzix Sizzlits Dec. Strip Die Venice
658524 Sizzix Bigz Die Classique
658526 Sizzix Bigz Die Elisse 
657524 Sizzix Sizzlits Die Set Card Phrases Set #3

This is what I did to make the gift box

1. Die Cut the bigger label 8 times:
- 4 times using corrugated cardstock
- 4 times using pattern paper

2. Attach the labels to one another by using 
double-sided tape.

3. Cut out of corrugated cardstock a square
 (approx. 7cm x 7cm) to use as a bottom.

4. Begin decorating the sides of the box:
- use flowers, cut outs, embellishments
- add the die-cut swirls, phrase, heart button, 
- add twine "handle" and decorate it with a 
die-cut heart border.

I also die cut the smaller size labels and add to 
two of the sides of the gift box.
Once again I die cut them from corrugated 
cardstock and pattern paper.
