Fall Winter Cover Lovers 2021 Blog Hop
Larissa here today to share 5 Adorable Coffee Themed Gift Boxes using a combination of Deco Foil Products!! I want to INSPIRE you on ways you can Give your LOVED ones SPECIAL Gifts by creating your own Gift Boxes, perfect for filling with Sweets and a Gift Card!! Let’s get Started!!
I wanted to create an Adorable Shaker Gift Box with a Gnome holding a Mug!! SWOON!! I LOVE how this turned out and I can’t wait to share with you how I made it!!
I Started by adhering some MFT Christmas Cheer Patterned Paper to some White Cardstock using the Easy Cut Adhesive Sheets!! I adhered the Easy Cut Adhesive Sheet to the White Cardstock and pressed it firmly into place then removed the Protective Paper and adhered the Patterned Paper pressing it firmly into the Adhesive!! Then I Die Cut the MFT Everyday Gift Box Lid Die and Die Cut the Box Lid!! I used another Die from the same Set to Die Cut the Shaker Window from the Center of the Box Lid and set them aside!!
For the Gnomes, I started with the negative to the Gina K. Designs Turquoise Sea Fancy Foils that was a Negative leftover from one of her older Basket Weave Foil-Mates!! I placed it over a Deco Foil Toner Sheet and ran it through my Laminating Machine!!
I removed the Film and then cut a Piece of the Gina K. Designs Twinkling Pink Fancy Foil and placed it over the Foiled Deco Foil Toner Sheet and ran it back through the Laminating Machine!!
SWOON!! I LOVE this Color Combo and the FUN Pattern!! Again, KEEP that Negative Foil and repeat the process to create the reverse of this Design, or switch it up by using a different color for a completely different look!! ENDLESS Possibilities!!
I chose to use the Negative Twinkling Pink Fancy Foil and placed it over a piece of Deco Foil Toner Sheets and ran it through my Laminating Machine!! Then I removed the Film and cut a piece of the Gina K. Designs Glittering Green Fancy Foil and placed it over the Foiled Deco Foil Toner Sheet and ran it through my Laminating Machine again!!
Next, I created the Outfits for the Gnomes and I wanted to add some texture to them so I used the coordinating Stencil to add some Patterns!!
(TIP: This Stencil really isn’t designed to use with the outfits, but remember to think OUTSIDE of the Box and use the different patterns for the outfits or for other FUN Textural Elements for your Cards/Projects)
Once I Die Cut the Beards I added some Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide Ink using a Blender Brush to add some Shading!! Then I added some Copic Marker Details to add the look of Hair Strands!! I LOVE how it really makes them POP!!
Next I created the Shaker Box Lids!! I cut a piece of Acetate small enough to fit inside the Box Lid and then Placed some Thin Foam Strips on the inside of the Box Lid to create the well for my Shaker Elements!! I filled then Well with some Snowflake Sequins, Clay Snowflakes, Coffee Hearts, and Clay Coffee Beans all from Trinity Stamps!! Then I placed a Cardstock Piece that I inked with Salvaged Patina Ink and placed it over the Foam Strips to finish off the Shaker Lid!! I adhered the Adorable Gnomes to the Box Lids with some Foam Tape and they are ready to fill with Goodies for someone SPECIAL!!
I started with a Unity Stamps Snow Many Flakes Toner Card Front and Foiled it with some Glass Slipper Deco Foil!! Then SAVE that Negative Foil as we’re going to be using it next!!
I Cut a Piece of Toner Sheet the size of the Negative Foil Piece and then I ran it through my Laminating Machine!! I just LOVE how BEAUTIFUL the Negative Foil is once Foiled to the Toner Sheet!!
For the next 2 Boxes, I wanted to use Unity Stamps Snow Many Flakes Toner Card Fronts and Die Cut the MFT Everyday Gift Box Die and Die Cut the Lid!! SWOON!! These make the CUTEST Gift Box Lids!! Plus, the Paper these Toner Sheets are Printed on are just the right thickness for a Sturdy Lid!!
So normally, I’d Foil a Piece of Toner Sheet with Glass Slipper Deco Foil but my Minc Laminating Machine decided to DIE!! So I want to show another way that you can use the Deco Foil if you DON’T have a Laminating Machine, or yours Breaks like mine!! Use the Easy Cut Adhesive Sheets and Adhere a Piece to some Black Cardstock!! Press firmly into place and then remove the Backing Paper and place the Foil over the Adhesive on the Black Cardstock!!
Press the Deco Foil Firmly into place and then remove the Film!! Now you have a Foiled Cardstock piece you can Die Cut!! I used a Scalloped Frame from the MFT Everyday Gift Box Die Set and Die Cut a Glass Slipper and Black Cardstock Scalloped Frame!! Then I Die Cut a Smaller Rectangle from some White Cardstock using a Trinity Stamps Modern Embossed Rectangle Stack Die Set!! Then I inked it with Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide Ink!!
For the Trinity Stamps Mini Coffee Cup Die I Die Cut it from White Cardstock and then Colored with Copic Markers for some Shading!! I used N0 & N3 then I Die Cut the Coffee Sleeve from some Brutus Monroe Rainglow Deco Foil and adhered it to the Coffee Cup!! I adhered a Snowflake Sequin to the Center of the Coffee Cup with a Zots Bling Adhesive Dot and then added a Rhinestone to the center of the Sequin!!
I repeated the Process and adhered the Coffee Cup to the Center of the Frame!!
For the Last Box, I create another Shaker Box only this time I added a Coffee Cup to the Window using some Foam Squares!! The possibilities are ENDLESS as there are SO MANY ways you can combine the different Deco Foil Products along with some of your FAVORITE Coffee Themed Products!!
So there you have it 5 ADORABLE Coffee-Themed Gift Boxes ready to Fill and Give to those SPECIAL People for the Holidays, Birthdays, or Just Because!! I hope I’ve INSPIRED you to give these a Try!!??
