Let's Wrap Things Up! - Edna

Hello and good morning!

Don't forget to join Jodie on Ideal World and Create and Craft for the Tonic POTD shows today.
I shared the squeeze box with you yesterday and now it's the turn of the Bottle wrap box die, but it's so much more than than.
Have you gorgeous smellies, home-baked goodies etc that you would like to make a decorative box for?
Look no further than this gorgeous set of dies.

For a special celebration I've gone with ivory and gold.

This design is the other die from the Let's Celebrate die set - isn't it gorgeous? 
You will need to cut the base die three times to make a 'wine' bottle sized wrap. The gift tag die doubles up as a base for the bottle and I cut one for the base and one for the inside to give it more rigidity.

If you only want to cut two shapes you will end up with a tall square box like the one below.
I found it was just perfect for holding three Yankee votive candles. It's a perfect gift to show someone your appreciation and just say thank you.
The boxes can be altered in height by cutting them down to the size you require so making them ultra versatile.

If you want to go bigger you can cut the die four times, don't fold the score lines and keep the box square.
This one was perfect for holding some gorgeous chocolate biscuits. The ones I used were bought but if you make your own what a lovely thoughtful gift that would make for someone too. 

I've used one of the papers from the new paper pads 'Winter Wonderland' and some Crystal drops to decorate. 

There is much more inspiration on Tonic Gold, the Tonic blog and Tonic's FB page.
I hope you have as much fun making your boxes and cards as I did. :)

Have a great day!
