    I know this thread says cards, but I wanted to do something different for today…….

    PicMonkeyCollagemon_zpsc85a07a3.jpg

    Before I start with HOW TO…. here's the template
    giftbox600_zpseda156e9.jpg
    When you want to print this template: Save this pic to your computer and make sure that the settings of your printer says for paper size A4. I have several size options in my drop-down menu, and I have clicked Full page. So this template will fill the entire A4 size paper. You might want to print a trial version first.

    So, let's get to it.

    0mo_zpsd9ed1593.jpg
    Cut the Bo Bunny paper at A4 wide (leave the extra lenght) Put your paper in your printer with the *good side* up. The good side means, the side you want to see for the outside.

    1m_zpsac49afa1.jpg
    the template will be printed on the backside (dotted side)

    2m_zpsac382b1e.jpg
    Cut along all the solid lines, and cut out the little triangle shapes.

    3m_zpsf2c73d15.jpg
    On the good side, make the scorelines like in this picture.

    4m_zps2b36923e.jpg
    With the dotted side up, score the diagonal lines. (I marked them with arrows for you)

    5m_zpsb6470a0a.jpg
    It looks like this on the *good side*

    6m_zpse241dd70.jpg
    Then score the long vertical lines on the good side. Again, I marked them for you

    7m_zpsd8d6d59c.jpg
    on the *good side* add glue to the (with x marked) flaps.

    8m_zps32a8f2a3.jpg
    Glue your box together like this.

    9m_zps4aca4fc2.jpg
    Gently fold the bottom together till

    10m_zps6dbdae39.jpg
    it looks like this

    11m_zps8783c693.jpg
    And press all the way down. This will be the bottom of the box.

    12m_zps014c9a95.jpg
    Flip your box

    13m_zpsc58c4d31.jpg
    And press the top together

    14m_zps31f329ba.jpg
    but leave it like this. Don't press all the way down. Your box is now ready to decorate. Of course you can use whatever you want to decorate your box. Stamps, stencils, lace, flowers you name it.

    15_zpsa7c0ef85.jpg
    I started mine with, inking up all the edges.Then,using the Bo Bunny stamps that came in the kit, I stamped a border all around the bottom, using versa mark and white embossing powder. (heat set it) Then I stamped, using Archival ink, my images to the front.

    16_zpsed71d420.jpg
    and back of the box.

    17_zps457839fd.jpg
    Using the flowers/vine and cord from the kit, I started decorating my box.

    18_zps82480bd8.jpg
    I diecut a few leaves, colored them with Art Anthology paint, in leaf, and sprinkled them with diamond dust glass glitter. Then I glued them like this, using hot glue

    19_zps492c91fa.jpg
    I glued a Prima dangling, that came in the Main Kit, from undeeath one of the leaves.

    20_zpsf1c89a7b.jpg
    On the other side I also glued a few flowers, a cut up piece of the Petaloo vine and a dangling, in a little cluster to my box.

    21_zps8507dcac.jpg
    From the cord that came in the Main Kit, I tied a bow and glued it on top of my cluster. And I glued some pearls at the bottom.

    22_zpsed6ae426.jpg
    On the back, I diecut a little frame (from TH Tag die) For texture, I added some Gesso to it,just dabbed it on with my finger. After it dried I glued it to my box and added the tiny labels with sentiment. To finish it up I placed some pearls.

    23_zps1ed3d5cf.jpg
    I also placed some pearls on the top. And called it done.

    As You can see, this box has a lot of potential and is awesome to give a personalised gift. You can adjust the hight by adjusting the middelest part of your template. You can decorate after your own liking and also choose any paper you want as long as you keep thickness in mind. You definitely want a sturdy box.

    I hope you like it and give it a try.

The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

            So. Last night, I was putting the finishing touches on my layout – the first using the Bejeweled kit – and I was thinking that this paper would be perfect for something other than layouts and cards and I was trying to think of what that something could be. Obviously, I was reading Paulien's mind, or she was reading mine in advance, because this is perfect!!!!
            And gorgeous to boot!!!!

            Thanks so much for doing this Paulien !heart it's on my moost do list!!!!!

                      Here's my attempt at this cute box. I didn't really have a stamp that I thought would go with the box,
