Gift Box and Candy Toppers


Hi everyone! It's time for my very first ed team video... and while I am certain it will get better each go 'round, this time go easy on me, alright?!

I wanted to show you how to make a gift box out of a plain old plastic box. You can certainly use chipboard, or any other kind of box as well, using the method I show you in the video. Then, on Thursday, I will be showing you how to top your gift boxes with fake candies.

Here is a glimpse of what we will be making....



The first box was made using Vibez in Jeni B. Blue and Sea Monkey. The second box, the one I actually create in the video, uses Vibez in Razzle Dazzle Berry and Spritz in Ruby.

Here we go...
