I have found the perfect way to use the Gift Box Punch Board beyond gift boxes. My snowman is pretty darn cute if I do say so myself. I decided to adhere the upper body pieces together so he wouldn’t topple over and leave the bottom body box open to put a gift.
The boxes are Whisper White, the pieces are 12×12, 10×10, 6×6 and 4×4. I felt he needed a scarf, so I ended up making a really short “box” free-hand from Real Red Glimmer with a couple strips draped down the side, so it looked like it was wrapped around his neck. The hat also has a narrow Real Red Glimmer to help tie it all together. The coolest part is the “faux coal” circles for the front and his face. I was thinking how could I create something that looked like coal. I had my a-ha moment when I seriously crumpled a piece of Basic Black card stock and then slightly flattened it out. I then gently rubbed VersaMark over the front and embossed it with black embossing powder. It was perfect!! It was crinkled and some parts were shiny like coal. I hope I have inspired you to try this adorable stack of boxes. Have a great Tuesday!
