Maymay's Pictorial Design Team Friendship Gift Box
Hey crafty peeps, Robin here with a quick and easy idea for a gift box, perfect for holding a few candies or sweets or a tiny gift for a friend or loved one. Great to have on hand for gift giving. Let's get started!  Gather materials, I chose this Maymay Happy Thoughts stamp set because it has the perfect sentiments to showcase expressions of friendship. Besides that, it has the cutest little creatures. I will be using this Echo Park Party Time sheet, feel free to use what you like, because its double sided and will give a nice finished look to the box inside and out....



Happy Thoughts Stamp Set

Echo Park Party Time Cardstock, cut 8" x 11"

White cardstock

Versa Fine Onyx Black Ink

Memento Dew Drop Ink in Love Letter, Morocco, Northern Pine

EK Tools Hydrangea Confetti Punch

Acrylic Stamping Block

Bone Folder



Art Glitter Glue


1. Grab the precut cardstock and on the 11 inch side, using the bone folder, score at 1 3/4 inches and 9 1/4 inches. Rotate paper and on the 8 inch side score at 1 3/4, 3 1/2, 5 1/4, and 7 inches. Fold and burnish all score lines.


2. With the thinnest rectangles facing you, cut off both end rectangles and slightly wedge the middle longest rectangle.


3. Now you will have 4 squares on each end. Cut and remove the first square on both sides, then cut up each score line releasing the squares. On the 2nd and 4th square, create tabs by cutting a small wedge on each side of those two squares, leaving the 3rd square intact as shown.


4. Add adhesive of choice, I'm using Art Glitter Glue on the the tabs as the picture shows. Form box leaving lid free to open and close.


5. Cut a piece of white cardstock 6 3/4 x 1 3/4 inches. Using the Versa Fine ink stamp the sentiment on the right side of the paper.


6. Using the colors of the Memento inks, stamp images as shown cleaning stamp between different colors.


7. Take a scrap piece of the Party Time sheet cut 7" x 2" to layer underneath the stamped images. Adhere leaving a slight border equally around the edges.


8. Use the EK Tool Hydrangea punch to create decorative elements for the top of your box. Punch flowers several times and layer and glue the largest 3 flowers together to give a dimensional look, and add a tiny piece of dimensional foam tape to the back of the flower to give a little height. If you like, tie box with a piece of ribbon or twine. I used some Doodlebug design jewels to give a little shine and something extra.


That's all to it! We would love to see your take on this easy project, post your photos on Maymay's Customer Gallery!
