Gift Box Tutorial

I am currently hosting a Stampin’ Up marker share.  There are 38 markers in the Many Marvellous Markers case (with room for the 10 In-colors) It can be a little bit on the pricy side to make the $109.95 investment in one go – but a ‘share’ over 4 months can be much more manageble ~ each member of the share recieves all of the markers inone of the color families each month and on one month will also recieve the fantastic sturdy storage case.  But that  means for three months each person just gets their markers loose…… I was not happy with this idea, it is not right, cannot possibly just hand over a bag with loose markers – so a box is in order!

I designed this box to hold all 10 of the markers in each family and it really made it special to give them – granted the box was placed in a bag for collection but at least those pens were not rattling around loose in it 🙂

I made a short video as it is so much easier to show rather than explain in writing.  If you want more details  on Connie Stewart’s ‘shim’ then you need to visit her site at where there is a video link to how she created this useful tool.

Brief recipe:

  • Top – 8 3/4 x 4 1/2 Raspberry Ripple Card
  • Score @ 1″ all round (with shim in place)
  • Base – 8 3/4 x 4 1/2 Marina Mist Card
  • Score @ 1″ all round (without shim)
  • 6 1/2 x 2 1/4 DSP
  • Label Love Stamp set
  • Artisan Label Punch
  • Raspberry Ripple Ink
  • Scraps of Whisper White and Marina Mist Card and Silver glimmer paper
  • Raspberry Ripple 3/8 satin ribbon

If you would like to partipate in the Marker share please let me know – I currently have a couple of places open – which means I have a couple of  crafters just itching to get started on their share!
