Simply Sweet Stamping: Sweet Strawberry Custom Gift Box

Need a certain size box for that special gift? For years I thought making my own boxes would be hard. It's actually super easy! In today's Facebook Live, I shared a simple formula for making practically any size box (limited by the size of your cardstock, of course). 

Featuring the Sweet Strawberry bundle*, I made a custom size box to fit a cute little 3-1/2" x 5" framed decor piece I created for an upcoming craft fair. 

*The Sweet Strawberry bundle is currently unavailable but will be back in stock soon!

All you need to create your own custom size box is a scoring tool (I absolutely love the Simply Scored Scoring Tool!)...plus this quick formula.

Each box has a length (L), width (W), and depth (D). The length and width are pretty easy, but the depth must be doubled for the correct size on all 4 sides of your box. 

Custom Box Formula
L + 2D by W + 2D

That's it! Super easy! Just add double the depth to both the length and width for your box template. Score your bottom and top pieces at the selected depth on all 4 sides.

Box Pro Tip:
Use a shim when scoring your box lid for proper fit.

The measurements of my framed decor piece were approximately:
  • 6-1/2" long (L)
  • 5" wide (W) 
  • 1" deep (D) 
Custom box measurments
6-1/2" + 2(1) by 5" + 2(1) = 8-1/2" x 7"

Today's mystery project featured some retiring papers and embellishments. Clues were given during my Facebook Live to assemble the suggested supplies. If you crafted along with me, I would love for you to share a picture of your project on my Facebook page. It's awesome to see all the different ideas using the same basic layout.



Supplies/Measurement

  • 2" x 4" Designer Series Paper 
  • 3-1/2" x 4" coordinating Designer Series Paper
  • Apx 2-5/8" x 4-7/8" white label (hint: I used a Nested dies label, but you can use whatever shape you have)
  • Coordinating ribbon embellishment
  • Sentiment stamp with ink
  • Focal point (apx 2-1/4" x 2-1/4")
  • Fun small, coordinating embellishments

Here is my mystery project using the Playful Pets and True Love Designer Series Paper along with the Resin Hearts and Playful Pets Trim.

The striped and polka dot prints from the True Love Designer Series Paper make a great backdrop for this playful pet card!
