Jumping Boxes Tutorial

Hello Kre8tors, welcome to my blog! Today I’m sharing a SUPER FUN interactive project with you. Jumping Boxes! These are SO neat! I was a little intimidated at first, I didn’t know how they worked or how difficult they would be, but the truth is if you can use scissors and have a rubber band,
you CAN make these! Scroll down for a video tutorial, FREE PDF tutorial, and template!

My husband made a pair of beaded stitch markers for my mom for Mother’s Day and asked me to make a little package to put them in. Well, I didn’t want a plain ol’ boring box. I wanted something FUN! And FUN is exactly what I made! These jumping boxes are so neat, they just jump right out at you when you open the matchbox style box.

The boxes fold completely flat and once they are released, the spring open with the rubber band mechanism. Pretty neat, huh?! Not to mention, the Peaceful Poppies suite makes this box look good!

I used the Peaceful Poppies DSP, Elements and Sequins to decorate the outside of the box. The sentiment is from the stamp set A Wish For Everything. I really love how easy and quick the decorations came together. These products are perfect for fast creations! They are all retiring, so hopefully it’s not too late to grab yours if they are still in stock by the time this blog post goes up!

Along with my husband’s gift box to house his present, I wanted my gift to my mom to match, so I used some of our DSP and wrapped up my gift. I used the beautiful Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon to finish it off. Along with this matching card, which you can see here, and her gifts were done!

Easy Pillow Box

Hey Kre8tors! Today I have a really FUN video for you! Need a quick little wrapping for a gift? How about a gift-card delivery vessel? This is the PERFECT little Pillow Box that takes one piece of 6 x 6 designer series paper and DOESN’T require a special die cut or machine! Just a piece of paper, some Tear N’ Tape, and a bone folder!

Of course if you’d like to decorate it you may need a few other items, but the basic Pillow Box takes minimal supplies! I decided to add a “gift-card” to mine before tying the ribbon.

Christmas Mug Gift Wrap

I wanted to make something unique to wrap some tiny Christmas gifts this year, so I made this tall mug from some cardstock! I love how it turned out, and the Christmas Around The World designer series paper really kicks this cup up a notch!

Yes, the ribbon I used may be retired, but there’s a great alternate option noted in the video!

Add a little fun to your boxes with Foxy Friends! I just love this stamp set, and it makes the most adorable accents and party favors! The best thing about this particular box, is that if folds and stores flat, no glue on the box required! (Except the embellishments.)
