Winter Inspired Wrap Box

Welcome all!  Today I have a beautifully inspired winter wrap box to share with you that holds something to warm your insides.


Little Yellow Bicycle - Winterings
card stock
sliver glimmer paper
teresa collins Christmas cottage rhinestone medallion
Spellbinder pearl heart


Martha Stewart punches
Memory Box snowflake die

To start, cut a piece of cardstock 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" and punch around the outside with a Martha Stewart border snowflake punch.  This is the dark blue base of the box

Create a box using a light blue piece of card stock measuring 8 1/2" x 8 1/2".  Score at 2" on all sides to create your box.  For the lid, cut a piece of light blue card stock 5 1/2" x 12".  With the long edge on the top fence, score at 4 1/2", 6 1/2" and 11".  Turn the paper so that the short edge is on the top fence and score at 1/2" and 5".  It should like the picture below.

Now cut as shown below:

Here is the lid and the base of the box:

Attach the lid to the box using Scor-Tape making sure that the bottom of the box is attached to the bottom of the lid piece on the outside.

Now we are going to create our "wrap" pieces.  Cut a piece of white card stock 3" x 12", punch both sides with a Martha Stewart snowflake border punch and a row of snowflakes using a Martha Stewart punch.  I used a contrasting piece of Little Yellow Bicycle Winterings paper behind the circle snowflakes. 

Attach one of the snowflake strips to the bottom, back and top of the box with Scor-Tape.

Attach the remaining snowflake strip to the bottom of the box with Scor-Tape, leaving the front edge and top free.  I hot glued the medallion to the top leaving the bottom half of the medallion free from hot glue.  This is where you tuck the other part of the "wrap" under.  Attach the box to the snowflake base we created in the first step.

Add a little something inside to warm you up on a cold winter's day!

I hope you have a wonderfully warm day!!
