The Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper has such a classic look to it! That's why we're so happy we used it on these DIY Paper Clutch Purses that was designed by Paper Pixie.
For those of you who want to watchthe original train wreck tutorial video here's the link lol: https://youtu.be/oPHsEkmM0dA
In the video, we started with Real Red cardstock for the box's base. You can follow along with the video for directions on how to cut and score the box. Measurements are also given below. After the cardstock was cut and scored, we add the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper to the box and folded everything together.
Nancy has been having difficulties holding the Tombow Multipurpose Glue Bottles because she has been crafting so much. So we recently purchased these glue bottles on Amazon that don't require as much squeezing! We highly recommend if you have pain in your hands or wrists but want to keep crafting. Just a heads up, as an Amazon Associate we do earn from qualifying purchases but wanted to share this product with you because we love it so much!
To decorate the box, we used the Double Oval Punch to punch out the sentiment from the Heartfelt Wishes Stamp Set. To finish things off, we added Gilded Gems and some Gold 3/8" Shimmer Ribbon.
