Gift box challenge {lily bee}


Today is challenge day at the Lily Bee blog, and it is also a week for thinking about holiday gifts and gift giving. So, my challenge to you is to make at least one gift box this season. 

It is so easy to buy a box for (or just bag) your gifts, that sometimes we forget to go a little further and really customize the presentation of the gift.


Here is my sample gift box for you using the We R Family collection from Lily Bee. It isn't a holiday-themed collection, but by using symbols of the season (like the buck), you can achieve the look without the santas and snowmen.


I was able to use my Cameo to cut all of these pieces (the buck, the tag, the bow and the box), but you could very easily find a box trace-and-cut template online even if you don't have a digital cutter. Plus, a real ribbon would do just fine!


So, there's my challenge to you this week: Make at least one of your gift boxes this season. You'll be so happy you customized the gift, you make like it even better than the present. 

Supplies: We R Family (Pattern paper: Game Night, Family Ties, Mother Daughter). Silhouette Store (Mounted Deer, 3D Present Cube, 3D Layered Bow)

I haven't quite jumped on the deer head trend yet, just don't quite get it. But, I love the simplicity and yet elegance of your gift!

I went box crazy during the Silhouette shape sale, so I can't wait to make and decorate my own this year! Love that you used two different colors for the box :)
