Peace and Joy (Gift Box: Same Pattern With New Design)

Using the same box pattern/instructions (slightly enlarged) from the previous post “here”, a whole new design was created!

Peace and Joy Gift Box

While the previous box design captured all the elements of a one-layer concept, today’s feature shows an alternative with added dimension.

Box Opened 

To keep the banner and ornament as focal points, a randomly designed background was created for the box top.  A piece of Sea Breeze (08-001) cardstock was stamped with Diamond Pattern and Winter Berries in Teal Zeal Memento ink with golden highlights added with the dotted scroll from A Wish for Peace stamped in Delicata Golden Glitz.

The sentiment for the banner was stamped in Delicata Golden Glitz and highlighted with Peanut Brittle and Toffee Crunch Memento inks.

Ornament Close Up 

Two impressions of the ornament (Hanging Treasures) were made with Delicata Golden Glitz on white cardstock and heat embossed with clear powder.  After trimming the ornaments, for layering purposes, the elements were colored with Grape Jelly and Teal Zeal Memento markers.  All the layers and attachments to the box were made with dimensional foam.  A small crystal gem and gold glitter were added for sparkly embellishments.

Enjoy letting your favorite box pattern be the platform for endless design possibilities!

Have a beautiful weekend,
