Good Saturday morning.  I have a decorative Christmas Charming Cottage Gift Box  by Spellbinders to share with you today made using Becca’s brand new 15 piece set.  I had lots of fun figuring out what pieces I wanted to use to make this project.  I embellished the top of the box using the Cinch and Go Poinsettia and Foliage. The assembled size of the house is: 2.625 x 2.5 x 4.5 inches. 

Come see how I made this festive Christmas charming cottage gift box.

Charming Christmas Gift Box

Assembling the Box

  • Cut two box sections using Kraft cardstock.
  • Fold all the score lines and sharpen the creases of the fold using the Teflon bone folder.
  • Apply double stick tape to the tabs and bottom sections and attach them together to complete the box.

The Windows and Door

  • Cut eight windows, eight curtain inserts and a door.
  • Run curtain sections through the crimper to add a touch of dimension.
  • Apply glossy accents to the back top edges of the windows and attach the curtains.
  • Apply glossy accents to the back of the door, center on the front of the box and attach.
  • Apply glossy accents to the windows and attach them all the way around the box.
  • The picture below shows the back and side views of the box.

Come see how I made this sweet Christmas charming cottage gift box.

Roof and Snow Sections

  • Cut fourteen scalloped sections.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of ten sections and layer them on the top of the box.  Start with the lowest section and work up to the top.  I miscalculated how close to attach mine so the top one is offset a little.
  • Apply double stick tape to the last four sections and attach them around the base of the box to create a snowy ground.

Decorating Touches

  • Cut several of the small flourish die, cut them in half and attach to each window using glossy accents.
  • Tie eight tiny red bows and attach to the windows using glue dots.
  • Cut poinsettia sections in red and green, form the petals using a stylus and molding pad and attach them together using glossy accents.
  • Attach the poinsettia to the box top using glossy accents.
  • Cut two pieces of foliage and tuck under the poinsettia and attach using glossy accents.
  • Attach a snow pearl in the flower center to finish.

The Christmas Tree Charm

  • Cut two sections of the Christmas tree charm. 
  • Apply versa to the star topper of the tree and emboss using gold embossing powder.
  • Cut the star topper off the second tree.
  • Cut a slit half way up the center of the star topped tree and cut a slit half way down the center of the second tree.
  • Trim off the trunk of both tree sections to create a flat bottom.
  • Slide the top tree down over the bottom tree until the bottom edges meet. 
  • Turn the sections until they create the standing tree.
  • I cut the star topper off both the additional trees so there would only be one star topped tree for my little scene.

Come see how I made this Christmas charming cottage gift box.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing the cut Christmas Charming Cottage Gift Box project with the cut little trees around it.  What a great way to give gifts at work, to neighbors and teachers.  The possibilities are endless with this wonderful set.  I sure do appreciate you coming by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
