3-D Tea Gift Box Download



The bright red highlights are not place here by the blog owner. Mine are a dark red.

This box was design to hold tea bags that I make and give as gifts. I have also used it for small jewelry that I make for gifts. I got the idea from several examples on Cricut, but just didn't quite like how they went together. I seemed like making my own was the only way I would be satisfied with the box configuration

The assembly requires that the side panels, be crease to the inside of the box about half way in order to close the box. I use Velcro to stick the flap down, or magnets.  Either one will require careful opening and closing to prevent tearing.  You could always use double-sided removable tape for a closure. This would be easier on the box if you wish to reuse it.

I used BoBunny Papers, and the embellishment sentiment.  The filigree I have had forever, and forget where it came from.  The pearl embellishment on the opening flap and the back of the box are from Prima.  The satin ribbon is from Offray. The black paper is Paper Bok at Walmart. I put this box together with Scotch Quick Dry glue, I just love this stuff. I doesn't take anytime to grab hold even before it is completely dry.  The roses are from I Am Roses, and I colored the cream colored rose with Lindy Stamp Gang Starburst sprays.  There is a really nice simmer on the flowers, that just doesn't show up on these photos.

This is so lovely, Shatril. I love the script paper & the way you've embellished it. Feels like the perfect purse for a garden party. :o)

Thanks for the tip on Scotch Quick-Dry glue...I'm an adhesive fanatic, if there is such a thing, and I just did a 40 page scrapbook for a friend and kept wavering between different adhesives...and wasn't really crazy about any of them. I'll have to give that a try!

Thanks for sharing these cut files; the finished product is so professional looking. Well done!
