I recently had the pleasure of spending some time with my upline here at Stampin’ Up! and I wanted to take a little something to her to say thank you.
I already knew the gift I wanted to give her, but I spent quite a bit of time thinking how I could package it. She happened to mention that the Sweater Weather designer series paper hadn’t registered on her radar, so that was a cue for me to use that as the basis to expand and build a box.
Now this box itself is size specific, the heavy bottle of Abahna Bath Oil needed to fit absolutely snuggly inside. It’s a glass bottle, and is heavy, so I didn’t want it to bash about and distort the box at all.
But the finished dimensions of it are 2 5/8 x 1 5/8 x 4 3/8 and the top extends a further 2″ (6.5 x 4.5 x 11cm with a further 5cn top) so it’s an excellent size to hold a multitude of things.
And of course, there has to be a video to go with this, and you know what to do….! CLICKETY CLICK HERE!
