Presenter Box

This week I brought you a presenter box, I used the Cottage Cutz Gingerbread Doll Die to create a garland style trim around the four sides of the box. The trim on the edge is the Cottage Loops Edger Die.
Each panel is basically the same except for the gingerbread cookies, Don't forget the spiced gum drops that are also on the die. I did them here in purple and orange. . . my favorite flavors.

For this project I wanted to have a box to gift a jar candle. In this case, I cut five 4" x 4" panels. You can use coasters but I generally use Cresent Black Mounting Board (found at a frame supple store). It is very thin, but twice as heavy as chip board. I cut the holes in the side of the chip board panels and used ribbon to tie together.






I tied a ribbon around the jar lid and added a gingerbread, a few cranberries and popcorn.
This type of box is great to give a bag of popcorn (in this case, Carmel popcorn), a bottle of bath gel with a sponge. . . . . just tie you gift up in a cello bag and put in the box.
