12 days of Krafty Handmade Giving - Day 8




Hi all! 
Today it's Krafty girl Lisa here - the 8th day of The 12 Days of Krafty Handmade Giving.
Each day from Decemeber 1st through the 12th we will be sharing lots of handmade goodies here on the blog featuring Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! We have so much fun to share with you and hope you'll get lots of Krafty ideas of what to give this year.

I've made a box that holds a small box of matches and two candles.
A perfect warming gift to give anyone.
I made it fit my items so you might have to adjust your box if you got other things to put inside.


It can be made from one 12" x 12" cardstock + decoration papers!

Cut two pieces of cardstock. One for the Box, and one for the Lid.
Score 1" from sides on both. Then cut from shortest side to the first scoring line - see my black dots on the picture.

BEFORE gluing your box together you can decorate it with the patterned paper - it's much easier. Only save the "top" decorations etc to do when you have glued it all together. 



NOTE: if you want a window in your lid, do it now (before gluing your box together). :) Use any shape of die to cut in the lid, as big or as small as you like. Glue a piece of acetate on the inside (or just any plastic).

Fold your box together and glue the shortest sides.
Now you can start decorate on top!


The lid is decorated with one of the children from the set Angel Voices.
Sentense is from a set called Happy Winter Days
I just inked it up partly and stamped it in a row instead.


I've decorated the match box in the same paper as the bigger box, and just added a few decorations.


If you not want to give candles, just put some candy in the box instead.
Larger box? Add an inch for the box on every side. Score 2" from sides and your box will be higher. Lid can still be the same.

Extra note:
Panel long side lid: 7/8″ x 3,7/8″ (brown)
Panel short side lid: 7/8″ x 3,1/8″ (brown)
Panel long side box: 7/8″ x 3,3/4″ (brown)
Panel short side box: 7/8″ x 3″ (brown)
Patterned paper slightly smaller.
Panel on top of lid: 3,7/8 x 3,1/8″ (brown)

Don't forget to pop back in tomorrow because we have lots of fabulous ideas to share with you!  
Have a wonderful day!

Happy Kraftin!
