I had so much fun playing with them today to dress up my little gift box! They can be decorated in so many different ways using the dies that come in the set or by adhering patterned paper and embellishments, and they may be used both horizontally or vertically! Use them as gift boxes and/or tea candle holders.
I have only touched on a few ways to decorate these boxes but there are a host of ideas available for them if you do a search on Pinterest.
I have used the Window Box Thinlits for my Waterlily Gift Box and I created a double-sized gift box in my Valentine Collection blog post.
After playing with the Sale-A-Bration FREEBIE–6 x 6" Glimmer Paper Assortment Pack–the other day, I was anxious to use the glimmery goodness again on Basic Black. I started by cutting out the two necessary pieces to make my box and then assembled the box using liquid adhesive.
I used the Rose Garden Thinlits to die cut the smaller rose from the Sweet Sugarplum as well as six smaller flowers and then die cut both the larger and smaller leaves from the Mint Macaron, trimming them with scissors.
Placing glue dots strategically around the top edge of the box sides, I tied a length of the now retired Sweet Sugarplum Glitter Ribbon around the box, finishing with a bow at the front of the box.
I used Connie Stewart's method for adhering detailed die cuts to adhere the die cuts to the top and sides of my box. This is the BEST method I have found yet for adhering these types of die cuts.
To complete my little gift box, I added rhinestones to the centre of the flowers and on the lid of the box.
Isn't it pretty? It's too bad that the glitter ribbon isn't still available as it matches the Glimmer paper perfectly!
If you would like to make your own little boxes, you can purchase your own Window Box Thinlits in my online store.
