Holiday Greetings, Friends! How about another take on holiday gift boxes? Today I am sharing a sparkly gift box using Curious Metallic CardStock from CutCardStock!

Like sparkly things? This one is for you! This is a 4×4″ square box that is 2 inches high and can be made using 8.5 x 11″ cardstock. The top is 4 x 4″ and is 1″ high.

Here is the side view. Great box for filling with small gifts or treats!

I started with a piece of Ice Silver Curious Metallic Cardstock cut to 8 x 8 inches and scored at 2 inches on all sides. I then cut the tabs and used Ranger Multi Mat Medium to glue them in place.

I used a piece of Aquamarine Curious Metallic CardStock trimmed to 6 x 6″ for the top. This one is scored at 1 inch on all sides. I dry embossed a snowflake stencil and covered it with Nuvo Glitter Glaze for interest.

Check out the video for details on the top cutout.

I used sparkly Silver Glitter Paper to cut out the top layer of the snowflake. It is mounted on a second snowflake cut from Cougar 80 lb. Cardstock. I glitter embossed the word Winter and diecut using the shadow dies from Neat and Tangled. I am addicted to sentiment strips, so the “Enjoy the stillness of” strip was perfect to top the box off!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I’d love to have you follow/subscribe on my social media sites Instagram, Facebook, Blogger, and YouTube.  Be well. Be creative!
