Jingle Gift Box

Hello Cupcakes! Just back from a lovely Lake Tahoe trip. My good friend, Sue Laufer has been organizing this Directors retreat for 8 years now! There were 10 of us and we had a total of 127 years of Close To My Heart experience! Wow! We networked, inspired eachother with create n' takes, brainstormed, and had fun secret sister gifting. We ate lots of treats we usually refrain from and had a wonderful time together. I will be sharing some of our goodies over the next few days. This is smiling Sue...

This clever box was designed by our own Kay Pekin.

We glued two thin boxes together (these are from a great resource for clear envelopes)

Then we made a box lid that slides over the top. You can replicate this idea using any box. Just measure the box and add 1/8" to the width and length. Our top was 3" down from the top. Embellished with Jingle papers (gift cut out from the paper), Glitter brads and ribbon. Cute!!! Thanks Kay!
Here are Kay's directions:
*take 2 card boxes and tape them togehter,
Measure the top and add 1/8th inch to measurements to create the top box. You also want to decide how far down to make your cover. Ex: the top was 4 1/2 x 1 so I added 1/8th to each measurement. Then I decided to make it 3 inches down. So 3 +3 (sides) + 1 1/8 X 4 1/2 + 1/8 +3+3. SCORE ALL EDGES 3 inches.
