Over at the VDBC forum, Sue is running a challenge this month to create something 3D. I decided to make a little gift box using a file from ArtiCrafts. For those of you who don't own digital cutters (or who can't use cutter files), Rebecca includes a JPG image with instructions that you can print and then cut the box out by hand. For my box, I used double-sided paper from K & Company (Classic K Margo). I added some black wire for the butterfly's antenna. His body is made out of green rhinestones and I added some white rub-ons (American Crafts) to his wings for added dimension. More white rub-ons were added to the closure of the box and I put a couple of blue rhinestones in the centers of the flowers.
Here is the front view.
And here is the top view.
This is the perfect sized box for a small gift, or even a few pieces of candy. You could even fold up some money and tuck it inside - a more unique way to give the gift of money instead of just putting it inside the card. I hope you enjoyed seeing my 3D project today.
Thanks for stopping by!
