Valentine Gift Box with Power Team Eileen Hull, Rinea Foil Paper and Xyron!

Happy Valentine's Day! It is nearly upon us! I made a cute (and quick) gift box that can hold delightful gifts such as – dark chocolate! (My vote.) I suppose you could substitute some other sweet but really, what would the point be? (ha ha, jk)

I used Eileen Hull's new Sizzix Gift Box with Scallop Edges Die for the structure and decked it all out with Rinea Foil Paper and more of Eileen's dies to create a festive and glam little box that you can use for all sorts of lovely gifts (not just dark chocolate.)

I also used my Xyron Creative Station Lite machine to quickly and neatly add adhesive to the back  of all my foil paper. It made this project fast to make! Read on for a quick tutorial.

I used Sizzix Sizzles Matboard for the substrate (two pieces). On one side of each piece, I spritzed on some Candied Apple spray stain. While that was drying, I cut strips of Rinea's Ruby Star Foil Paper to the width of the board and ran it through my Creative Station. The Creative Station makes it so easy to apply adhesive to papers etc. All I had to do then was peel off the backing sheet and adhere the foil paper to the other sides of the matboard pieces. Then I die cut the box parts.

I also cut smaller rectangles of pink foil paper and ran those through the Creative Station too. (Did I mention it was easy?) All I had to do then was use the Hearts Journaling Cards Die to cut the side panels and then stick them on the box sides.

The Rinea Foil Paper is also an excellent choice for using in embossing folders. The Gold Foil in the 3-D Impresslits Embossing folders is especially nice – it looks just like vintage Dresden Scrap! I made box trim using the 3-D Mini Scallop folder.

Hot tip: stamp on the Foil Paper using Staz On ink.

Once again, by using the Xyron machine to put adhesive on the strips of gold foil before embossing, it made it quick and easy to apply to my box afterwards.

The Gift Box is easy to assemble. Fold on the score lines and glue the tabs to the insides of the box. (Except for the top!)

I also embellished the top of the box with a flower with a large brad center. The Rinea Foil Paper is easy to bend into a desired shape and then it stays put! I die cut the flower layers and then shaped the petals.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope the rest of your week is a good one and that you have a chance to get crafty. ;-)
