Today's tutorial: A2 Card Box
Author: Beate Johns (Beate)
Gallery: Technique Spotlight >> Holiday Blitz Gallery >> A2 Card Box
Keyword: 2018BLITZ8
Date: Nov. 13, 2018

One of my favorite gifts is handcrafted cards for friends and family, and I am thrilled to share one of my favorite tutorials today, Beate's A2 Card Box. It's perfect for gifting specially crafted cards, and with Beate's tips to try, it is easily adjustable to any size you need!

Another gift I love to give to neighbors and friends over the holidays are homemade goodies, and many of you know the tin or box to give the treats in can be pretty pricey. Not to mention, they can be so big that it takes 3 recipes of the treat to fill the tin. Can you say, 'expensive'?

I love making my own little gift box for a few decadent 7-layer bars. Here I've created a box that is 4" x 5" to hold homemade bars. I've cut a "window" on top of the box with a beautiful snowflake die. I simply wrap my bars in waxed paper.

I hope you'll try this fun project. Minutes to execute and perfect for quick, easy and inexpensive gift presentation!

Oh my, I just made this last week as a gift for my daughters' cross country coach and I did not take a picture for uploading because I finished at the last minute! This is one of my favorite tutorials here.

I love the two boxes you made, one so bright and cheerful, the other rustic and rich. Are you going to share your "decadent" 7-layer bar recipe, too? You had me at "decadent"

Heart 2018BLITZ8 Santa's Here!

For today's 2018BLITZ8 challenge, I dug out a sturdy cracker box of lightweight cardboard for my box base, and covered it in striped and dotted papers, doing the same for my box top. Added a scalloped border around the edges of the box top, and stamped, colored, and fussy cut images of Santa with his bag of toys for the kids, and an old fashioned Christmas tree. Finished with a jolly striped ribbon. I'm putting gift cards for our grown up kids in the box - Santa's Here!
