We all know that the holiday parties will be here before we are ready. Start now by making these double gift boxes for a hostess thank you. Wait until you see what we filled our box with. But first, here is a list of supplies used:
- Card Stock - Very Vanilla
- DSP - Jolly Holiday
- Stamps - Sincere Salutations
- Ink - Cherry Cobbler
- Other - vintage ribbon (from our soon-to-be released Holiday collection, Designer Label Large, red brads, sticky strip, Styled Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware, small flat magnet (for the closure)
We put sticky strip along the inside bottom edge of the flap to hold our ribbon as we pleated it. Very fun look. This box is held closed with a small flat magnet. We learned to attach the hardware FIRST before attaching the magnet. The magnet wants pull and move the hardware around making it hard to keep in the spot of choice.
We have included several "goodies" to create personalized place cards which can be used at the holiday table. The recipient can use the handmade items to create any style they choose. We have shown one idea below.
The top compartment holds four (or more) Very Vanilla card stock place cards. The size of the folded place card is 2" x 3-1/4". In the bottom compartment we put in the hand-dyed crocheted flowers, half-back pearls and some of our upcoming Old Olive Holiday vintage ribbon.
