How to Make Teacher Appreciation Gift Boxes
This die makes more of a bag but if you put two of them together you will get a box!
The die gives each side of the box a cute wavy edge. Leave the wavy edge on the box that is going to be on the lid and trim the wavy edge off of the box that will be the inside portion.
Each piece makes one side of the box.
This is what it looks like when you put them together.
Fill the inside box with candy. I used Hershey Kisses.
The next step is the Rosette to decorate the box.
To make this rosette use a scoring board and cut 2 strips of paper 1 3/4 x 12 inches and scored every 1/2 inch.
After the paper is scored do an accordion fold so the two strips look like this.
Glue the ends of the two strips together so it makes a ring.
The next step is difficult to take pictures of because I needed both of my hands. Push the ring flat and push the inside together. Add a glob of hot glue in the very center and put a scrap of paper on it to secure it. This will be the back so it doesn’t have to be pretty.
I used an A+ stamp I had on hand and used a circle punch and a slightly larger scallop circle punch as the background and hot glued them together.
For the belly band, cut a strip of scrapbook paper 1 1/2 x 12 inches, wrap around the box and hot glue the ends together. Hot glue the rosette to the belly band and there you have it. A cute little gift box filled with candy for my kid’s teachers.
I hope they know how much I appreciate them!
