Tips and Tricks Tues 12/11

I discovered this super awesome and easy tutorial on making a gift box from 12x12 craft paper. Ready for my reveal? I have to say I am in LOVE with this concept.

I stamped 4x4 card stock in 3 colors and adhered them to the main paper.

I made a felt lid instead of paper. I should have used stiff felt instead of soft for a tighter fit.
The lid keeps the box together.

I then added a ribbon bow and hand stamped wooden tag.
