Fun castle gift box

The new Myths and Magic DSP is such fun. With wizards and unicorns, mermaids and dragons you will adore this fun paper. I used mine to create this fun Castle theme gift box, complete with dealing knights and fire breathing dragons.

This idea can be adapted to any box really as what we have done is created a facade... a fake front to our box making it into a castle. I would however suggest using a box with some height and equal sized sides.
I created a very basic 3 x 3 x 3" sized bow with a lid then crated four castle shaped panels, each had hand drawn walls. I then simply fussy cut some of the cute images from the myths and magic DSP and mounted them on mini dimentionals... Super easy and quick to make and the box I used is a great size for sweet treats as a party favour or birthday gift.

If you fancy giving this project a try I have a full step by step tutorial for you to follow. measurements and products used are listed below. So grab a brew get comfy and enjoy the video.
