Beautiful Friendship

Happy Friday!!

Today I have a little box that is just the perfect size for a gift card AND I have a video!

If making boxes seems intimidating, trust me, they are easy.  Most boxes follow the same type of instructions and once you’ve made a few, you can whip right through them.  The hardest part is figuring out the dimensions and I’ve done that for you!

It’s also quite easy to make your own shredded paper for the inside. Simply cut your cardstock very thin, scrunch it up and you have your own homemade filler for the box. How easy is that?

Gift Card Box

All of the supplies I used for both boxes can be found in the supply list below and can easily be ordered over at my online store.  Don’t forget that Bonus Days are here until the end of July which means for every $50 purchase, you’ll receive a $5.00 Bonus Days coupon to spend in August.
