Fold flat gift box with a pop of colour

Here we have a super beautiful AND useful box. Finished dimensions are 3x6x2"a great gift box size. The way this is constructed is not a new idea, indeed I was directly inspired by my latest box of MAC makeup which came is a similar box, just bigger.

So I reduced the sizing and came up with this one and you can make two of the main body from a 12 x 12 sheet. I do love the fold flat box design as you can ..well ... fold them flat. Great to make in bulk ahead of time and store until needed.
I just adore black and white. But I love it even more with a tiny pop of colour. Here I used Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay and Berry Burst to just give the black colour a bit of a wow. And an extra wow is the stunning stamp and sentiment  taken from the petal pallet set from Stampin' Up! A stunning box yet so simple ANYONE can create it.
I do have a step by step YouTube tutorial which I strongly advise you watch to help construct the box. Measurements and products used are listed below. Don't forget you can click each product photo to be taken direct to my online shop. But for now grab a brew get comfy and enjoy the video

Happy stamping xxxx Amanda
