Snail Mail Gift Box YouTube Live REPLAY. How could I have forgotten to share the details of this cute little Gift Box? I made this last week on my YouTube Live and have totally forgotten to share the details with you all. Time to correct that.
The size for this box was decided by the size of the square die in the Snail Dies. As it slightly over 2-1/4″, the box is 2-1/2″ square, although the die is actually not exactly square, so please remember that when you are using it. I wanted to use one of the patterns that is in strips, so cut a few from the paper and then measured the height. This pattern is just under 3/4″, so the lid is 3/4″ high. As I wanted the base to only be a little taller than the lid, I made it 1″ deep. And so the measurements for my box were decided.
I wanted the box to be bright, so selected Daffodil Delight Card for the lid and base, please see the dimensions and score lines further down the page. The box came together really easily. I knew I wanted the die cut to be popped up on Dimensionals to give it more prominence. I also knew I wanted to use a Vellum Envelope on the top as the main embellishment. The little envelope die is just too cute and combined with the small rectangle, stamped with a heart and ‘hello’, this is the perfect topper for this little box.
And who can resist those little snails around the sides. I never thought I would think of snails as cute, they certainly aren’t when they are eating out home grown vegetables!! But on this paper I am very happy for them to be wherever they want.
I do hope you will have a go at making a box decorated with this paper, it really is so pretty and the B sides are very useable on so many projects that have nothing to do with snails or mail!
