My name is Debbie Seyer and I am a new member of The Hybrid Chick team! I am new to the Hybrid world of paper crafting and the only die cutting machine I own is The Wizard™.
I hope you will come along with me on this journey of the wonders of Hybrid/Digital paper crafting!
I am excited to show you what I created using Kelleigh Ratzlaff’s template called Flutter Top Box. I am a mother to 3 school aged girls so teacher gifts are a must to show MY appreciation for all they do.
Using the Flutter Top Box template, I printed it onto heavy cardstock.
After cutting these out, I placed each one on my scoring tool and scored the dashed lines.
After prefolding along all scored lines, I layered some patterned paper onto the box sides. The patterned paper I used is from October Afternoon 8×8″ paper pad called Fly A Kite.
Using some Zip Dry Paper Glue (by Beacon Adhesives), I glued the side flap into place to make the first part of the box. Now all you have to do is fold together the bottom. For this particular box, I put a few dots of glue to hold it all into place.
For the top of the box, I prefolded the scored lines and then used a hole punch for each flap. Then I threaded ribbon thru all 4 holes.
Then I tied my ribbon into a bow on top of the box. That way the recipient of this box will be able to untie the box and open the box from the top. If you choose, you could glue the box shut on top and fold the flaps on the bottom of the box so that it could be opened that way, too.
Once I tied this bow, I printed out my tag onto white cardstock. Using Labels 7 Nestabilities™, I cut/embossed the tag. Then added the cute strawberry die cut and tied this to the box using linen thread.
I think my daughter’s teacher will love this filled with her favorite chocolates! Hope you found this to be a great idea for another Teacher Appreciation gift!
