Welcome to my Blog. I hope you are all well & enjoying my tutorials :-) Today i have the most adorable little shadow box for you! I designed this to hold a Nivea Lip Butter Tin. It fits perfectly & i even made a little box for the shadow box to slip into! Basically this makes a beautiful & inexpensive gift. You can co-ordinate the colours so that your card/paper matches your Lip butter tin. Its so easy to make & also looks very professional.
|I made the box blue to match my Lip Butter!|
|This make fantastic gifts!|
With this project you can make it from card Stock or scrapbook paper. I went for paper as i wanted them to be nice & colourful. I decided to make the gift box matching but you could do that in a different pattern if you wish. Anyone would be thrilled to receive this! It would be a perfect Teacher gift & i would think they would do very well at Craft Fairs.
I also thought about cutting out a little window in the gift box so that you can see the Lip Butter inside. You could put some acetate behind the window so that the Lip butter doesn't fall out. When i make another i think i will try it. On the front of the Blue Box i i stamped & heat embossed a sentiment & then added a twine bow.
