All-in-One Gift Box

Hi everyone, I found a tutorial by Wendy Weixler on the Splitcoast Stampers site for this cute little All-in-One box. It's finished size is fairly small, but just the right size for a little cupcake shaped gift soap. You could also use this for chocolates or jewellery etc.

I used a double sided sheet of Kaisercraft patterned paper. The lid is not a separate piece, it's the reverse side of the PP.

This is the top view of the box. I've seen a bunch of these rosettes made with ribbon, but I thought to myself that I could use the same method with a piece of pretty lace. Basically all you do is use a threaded needle to sew a running stitch across the top of the lace, then draw it up tightly and tie off the ends. I used a large vintage button to finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by today!
