Grand Gift Giving with Eileen Hull

Hello there! One of Eileen's newest dies is the House Ornament Die which has so much potential! For this project, I envisioned it as a cute gift box that is as special as the gift inside. (A double gift? =) )

The size is perfect for small gifts.

This was easy to make! I used her handy Blends inks to color the walls of the house. I find it easier to do this part before assembly. I also glued a bit of lace behind each window to look like curtains. That is definitely easier to do before the house is put together!

You cut the house sides twice. Cut the bottom flap off one of the cuts.

I used the Rooftops die from the Tim Holtz Village series to created the tiles for the rooftop. Easy peasy! I added grass and flowers around the base to give it a little garden. =) I glued the bottom flap of the box in place, figuring I would load the gift in through the top. In retrospect, I probably should have made the top permanently closed instead. Oh well. Both ways work!

Thanks for stopping by!
