I decided to make a tri-fold gift card box, the type where the doors swing open and the box is held shut with a slider. The finished project looks like this:
My plan was to cover the box with patterned paper. But when the doors were open and flat, the box measured a wee bit more than 12 inches end to end, making it impossible to cover with a standard piece of scrapbook paper.
I looked through my stash and saw that patterned paper by Canvas Corp is printed on one side then completely solid - with no label - on the back side. Perfect. That gave me the extra half-inch I needed. I stamped a swirl design on the plain side of the paper, then used it to covered the box.
To make the slider, I used a printed piece of Canvas Corp Paper and the original slider from the Kohl's box, wrapping it in twine. To make the decorative element, I used a journaling card from Jillibean Soup and flipped the box to a vertical orientation.
I added a Soup Label sentiment (There's No Bunny Like You), a doily and a chipboard bunny. I tied a wee bit of ribbon around the bunny's neck then added a pom pom tail from twine.
To make the pom pom, I wrapped twine around fork tines, tied it tightly in the center, then snipped the ends.
