Hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s Day! If you’re anything like me, you are longing for warmer temperatures and some color! Today, I designed a project using a great template that gives you lots of room for customization and options. The papers that I used include gorgeous, rich colors–making me feel like I’ve been whisked away to a tropical location!
To start, I opened Geeky Diva’s template with Photoshop Elements and chose which of the boxes to use. I clipped my papers onto the bottom and lid. I did reduce to opacity of the scoring lines so they would be less visible. Then, I printed both sheets. The next step is to cut out both pieces and score where needed. The template is very clear cut and I was able to quickly score. I like to use Scor-Tape on anything that will be handled as it does not budge! I added a bow to the lid.
I decided I wanted to include some little notecards, sized 3.75 inches by 3.75 inches, which fit perfectly inside the box. I simply opened a new document in my software added two papers onto that document and printed them off. I then cut three pieces out to add to the front of each card and adhered. I left them otherwise blank, so the recipient can use them however he or she likes.
My favorite part of this box is how roomy it is! I wanted to include a little bag of chocolates and since the doomed top gives lots of room, I was able to fill a bag and have it fit into the box without any squeezing!
I hope that my gift will bring a smile to the face of my friend and help her get through these last few weeks of winter!
Both the box template “That Little Box” by Geeky DIva and the digital kit “Jaunty, Olive and Orange” by Danielle Engelbretson will be available for sale on Thursday, February 17th in the Digichick shop.
