Happy Holidays

Hello everyone!! Happy Holidays to all of you!! It’s Kymona here with you today!

Are you ready for all of the fun of the holidays to begin? Have you finished your holiday shopping? What’s on the menu?

I only have a couple of gifts left to get. I’m excited about this holiday season because all of my brothers and sister are coming into town so we are going to have soooo much fun. All of the little ones get to spend Christmas with each other. I can’t wait to see them open all of their gifts.

Speaking of gifts, I have another awesome gift packaging for you today. I’m always looking for different ways to present gifts to people that I care about. I think it gives an added touch to the gift. So thanks to my new blogging friend Nicole who taught me how to make this awesome packaging.

Well today’s gift is for my daughter’s teacher. Teacher’s get so many gifts from their students. Which means teacher’s have to write thank you notes to show their appreciation. So as apart of my daughters gift to her teacher, we included thank you cards.

Now you can just give them the cards wrapped in a nice ribbon or clear box but made a really cute package out of pattern paper that houses the thank you cards.

Take a look:

Can you image getting a set of cards in this packaging.  I love this little box.

Take a look at the opening:

The thank you cards fit so neatly inside of the box.  This box holds 4 cards and envelopes.

I used the following stamp set to create my box and cards.

Holiday Sentiments  Thank-You-

Here’s how I created this box:

1. I cut my pattern paper to 7-3/8″ by 9″.

2. Then I scored my paper on the 9″ side at 1/2, 2-1/4, 4-3/4, and 8-1/2.

3. I turn the paper on the 7-3/8″ side and scored it at 1/2′, 5-5/8, and 6-1/8.

4. Then I cut small pieces off the top to create my closure and flaps to close the box at the bottom.

5. I used strong adhesive to put my box together.

6. I used a pencil to plot out my holes for the closure.

7.  After punching the holes, I added my bakers twine and closed the box.

8. I stamped my sentiment and colored it in. I added glitter for some shine.

9. I used a stitched  die to cut out my sentiment.

10. I attached the label to the front of my box with some adhesive.  I added sequin to the front of my box.

My cards are pretty simple.

1. I cut my white card stock to 5 by 7 scored at 3.

2. I stamped “Thank You” using my Versamark ink and added embossing powder and heat set it.

Very classy!

Such a pretty gift set to give to not alone a teacher but family members.  All of us need to say thank you!

  13. Juliet says:

    Hi Kymona! I love this idea! I just tried to make the box but I think you got a typo! Correct me if I’m wrong but for the measurements on the 9″ side, is the second score suppose to be 4-1/4, not 2-1/4? This is my first time trying this out so I may be wrong. I would love to know!

    • Kymona Tracey says:

      Hey Juliet!! Thank you so much for your wonderful comment. Ok, lets go over the score lines. The 9″ side (landscape side) the score lines are 1/2″, 4 1/4″, 4 3/4″ and 8 1/2″. On the 7 3/8″ side (portrait side) the score lines are 1/2″, 5 5/8″, 6 1/8″. I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have anymore questions.
