Unusual Shadow Box Of Gift Boxes!

Positivelypapercraft gift box tutorial


Hi Everyone,
Welcome to my Blog & thank you for stopping by!
I am quite proud of Today's project!! I think its quite unusual & for some reason it reminds me of some kind of Puzzle box! I have had it in my head for a few days now & i am so please with the end result. It turned out way better than i imagined. Its really simple to make so please don't be put off as its so easy.

Its basically a very deep shadow box that holds 4 seperate gift boxes inside. An acetate wrap finishes it off & holds it all snugly together! I love it! The large paper bow on the top of the box is a tutorial i did a couple of years ago. Again its so easy to make. Here is the link for it, EASY PAPER BOW

I think this would make a fantastic gift for either a Male or female. You could fill each box with lovely Gifts. For a woman you could maybe have Nail polish in one, Lipstick in the other or Jewellery etc. You could maybe even fill them with craft items or Chocolates.
Also say if you have 4 children or or giving a gift from 4 people, you could allocate a box to each person so they get a box containing a gift from someone different! Just an idea.

MEASUREMTS 

SHADOW BOX

4 PIECES CARD OR DESIGNER PAPER MEASURING 7" X 6"
SCORE THE SHORT SIDE @ 1/2", 2 1/2", 3 1/2" & 5 1/2"
DO THIS TO ALL 4 PIECES

BOX BASE MEASURES 7 X 7"

BOX BACKING MEASURES 6 7/8" SQUARE

ACETATE WRAP MEASURES 9 X 9"
SCORE ALL 4 SIDES @ 2"

(YOU CAN GET AWAY WITH ACETATE MEASURING 8 1/4" SQUARE,  SCORE @ 1 5/8" ON ALL 4 SIDES) IT WONT COME AS FAR DOWN THE BOX BUT ITS STILL OK TO USE.

2 STRIPS OF CARD FOR THE ACETATE (TO CREATE A PARCEL WRAP EFFECT) MEASURE 1 1/2" X 9"

4 BOXES

4 PIECES OF CARD MEASURING 8 1/4" X 10"

DESIGNER PAPER FOR THE BOXES
4 PIECES MEASURING 2 1/4" X 2 7/8"
1 PIECE MEASURING 2 1/4" SQUARE

YOU WILL NEED THESE 4 TIMES AS THERE IS 4 BOXES

I really hope you will give this box a try! I am sure you will love it.

Bye for now

  1. WOW! This is super beautiful Ann. Think where I'd have the problem would be with the frame & the 2 side pieces that are a little difficult to make sure they are straight when securing to the base. Since the underside isn't seen at all, could I just glue an extension piece, say to the 5 1/2" side of 1/2" or 1"? You're right most card stock pads only have 2 of ea. design. One would be lucky to have 4! TYFS

  2. That's exactly what I have done with mine ( I just used some scraps of white card from my scrap bin) as my hands don't always co-operate with me & it's worked perfectly. X
