Tiered Gift Box

Designer Tip: This box is easy to make, and is great for a party favor, or to hold a special small gift. This box looks elegant made from the swirly floral foil--and is sturdy, too.

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Trace the template on the back of foil paper, be sure to mark the fold lines. Remove the template and cut out the pattern. Fold according to the template directions.
  2. Wrap the neck of the box 2 or 3 times with Memory thread, then twist the ends together to secure. Then wrap the ends around a small paint brush handle to curl them into tendrils.
  3. Use the template to create a label shape from cardstock, then write or computer print a greeting on it. Mat on red tapestry foil and glue to the side of the box.

Instructions:

  1. Trace the template on the back of foil paper, be sure to mark the fold lines. Remove the template and cut out the pattern. Fold according to the template directions.
  2. Sand the edges of the ice cream swirl to define the edges.
  3. For the cherry made from memory thread: start with 24" of red Memory thread, make a narrow loop, 3/4" long. Continuing with the same length of Memory thread, make another loop across the center of the first loop (so the loops look like a +). Now wrap around the center 3 times horizontally, then 3 times vertically. Continue wrapping until you have used the length of thread. Now shape into a ball and Zot™ to the top of the chocolate ice cream.

  2. Add light green memory thread around the base of the leaves, then wrap around the stalk of the cotton swab to curl it. Twist two 5" lengths of red memory thread together, then make a loop. Attach at the top of the box for a handle, and secure with the brad, attaching the leaves as well. Add the strawberry tag and small leaf to one of the light green tendrils at the side of the box.

Love these templates and projects. One problem that I have had is to find an adhesive that will hold the foil papers together. I have tried a lot of things but within a day they have come apart.
Any sugestions?
Reply from Paper Wishes Customer Service:
Susan Cobb says "To glue the foil paper to paper, such as a card front, I use a glue stick or the adhesive squares. To attach an embellishment or paper to the foil side,I use adhesive squares or Zotsâ„¢ adhesive dots, as the glue stick doesn't work as well with the foil side. If I'm making a template project such as anornament where I have to adhere two shiny sides together, humungo type adhesive works the best.
