Love Parcel

Stampin Up Bear Hugs
TheFridayMashUp want us to be ready for Valentine's Day.
Well if you're not ready, you've missed the boat, seeing as it's today!



We made these gift parcels at my February craft club session

together with a matching card (which I forgot to photograph, oops!).

I'll have to update the post once hubby has opened his card & present ;)


Stampin Up Bear hugs



Anyhow, I digress from the aforementioned parcel.

These gift parcels are the perfect size to hold a pack of truffles (or in this case, caramel hearts!) sold at Thorntons.

And all you need to make it is 1 sheet of A4 card.

- With the card landscape style (horizontal), score it at 3" 5" 8" 10".

- Then with the card portrait style (vertical), score it at 2".

- Fold along the score lines and you will see that the 2" score line forms the base of your package.

- At one bottom corner you will have a rectangle approx 3" x 2" and at the other bottom corner you will have a square approx 2".

- Cut away the 2" square.

- Using strong glue make up into your box shape. It's easier to adhere the long side edges first. Then fold up the 4 bottom flaps.

- To fasten the top of the package, punch a small circle on either side & feed a piece of ribbon through.



Happy Valentine's Day peeps!
