Recycled Gift Box Idea with Craftwell

 Hi I am over on the Craftwell Blog....
Hard to believe it is only two days until Christmas!!!!
Are you like me? 
Waiting to the last minute to wrap gifts...
Finding that your are out of paper!!!
If you find yourself in my shoes, I am going to share with you how to make a pretty package by re-cycle some old gift boxes. 
 First thing you will need to do is get a box, lol.
Then search through your stash of scrapbook papers and find some you would like to work with. 
I am using Teresa Collins Hello Life Collection for my gift box.
 OH MY!!!
Can you see all the different dies I ready to cut on my Cut n Boss!!!
Love that you can cut several at one time, especially when you are in a time crunch! 
Begin by selecting the pattern papers and dies you are going to cut. 
Once selected run through the Cut N Boss using two A plates, B plate, shim and platform. 
Remove papers from dies.
Repeat again for the bow, tree and label.
 Cover the box on all sides with pattern paper. 
Make a mat stack using pattern paper, deco punch the corners, adhere together.
 Border punch patter paper.
Adhere under pattern strip.
Adhere to top of prepared box.
 Adhere mat stack to top of box.
Form bow, adhere to to of mat stack.
Layer the two tree die cuts with pop dots, add to top of box.
Add label to top of pattern paper, fussy cut around label. 
Adhere to top of box. 
Add second label center to label on box with pop dots.
 I hope you have enjoyed my recycle gift box. 
If you get in a crunch whether at Christmas or any time of the year recycle last years gift boxes into a magical gift. Have a Merry Christmas and I will see you in 2016!!!
2016!!! OH MY!!!!
