Here's a little box for tiny Christmas gifts...earrings, money...anything tiny. The actual box part measures approximately 1" x 2". Click here to download the pattern. As usual...cut along the solid lines and fold along the dotted lines...see the photo below:
For the stocking piece, attach two eyelets as shown above. For the box piece, follow fold lines and form a rectangular box. Apply double stick tape to the tabs on the bottom of the box.
Attach the box along the fold line of the stocking piece. I also inserted a 1" x 2" (approximate) piece of paper into the bottom of the box to hide the tabs. Slide a ribbon through the two eyelets to close the box. For the "patches" on the stocking I used a piece punched with a Marvy (yellow) scalloped oval punch. I cut the piece in half lengthwise, and used one half along the top edge of the stocking. I trimmed the other half to fit around the toe of the stocking. I also punched a 1/16" hole on the side of the stocking and threaded a gold cord in case you want to use the box as an ornament. Here's another sample:
Stamps used: #911 (Christmas Bear), #922 (Merry Christmas), #A111 (Snowflake Buddy) and #923 (Happy Holidays). Thanks for stopping by!!!
