The Positive and Negative of Christmas Gift Boxes

Hi everyone! With only a few days before Christmas, I have some quick and easy to make Christmas Gift Boxes, decorated with a sheet of 3D Foam Snowflakes from my 3D Foam Holiday Embellishment Kit. The fun part is that you can use both the positive and negative parts of the sheet so there is no waste!

Creating the Christmas Gift Boxes

First die-cut two (half) box shapes from soft blue cardstock per gift box. I made two gift boxes, so die-cut a total of four box shapes.

Then assemble the box with Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/4in to adhere both parts of the box pieces together and secure the bottom side of the box too.

Embellish the First Gift Box

Now for the fun part! Let me show you how to embellish the boxes with the 3D Foam Snowflakes in both the positive and negative pieces.

With your sheet of 3D Snowflakes Foam, remove the top liners of the snowflake shapes.

Sprinkle white glitter on top and rub the glitter onto the snowflake shapes. Tap off or use a brush to remove the excess glitter.

Take a ruler and a craft knife to cut some of the snowflakes in half. Be careful that you do not cut into the sheet – the negative space – around the snowflakes. You will be using that for the second box.

Next gently remove both the full and cut snowflakes and dots from the 3D Foam Snowflakes sheet and adhere to the box in the desired pattern. Add rhinestones and pearls to the gift box using Adhesive Dots. For a finishing touch, adhere a bow and small button to the box top with Adhesive Dots.

Decking out the Second Gift Box

For the next gift box, the negative piece of the 3D Foam Snowflakes sheet will be used. First, cut squares just slightly smaller than the box sides into the leftover 3D Foam Snowflake sheet and adhere them to the box side. Assemble the gift box using Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/4in.

Next, remove the top liner of the negative piece on the sides of the box. Use your choice of foil, I used silver, from the 3D Foam Holiday Embellishment Kit to transfer the color to the negative pieces. Remember to use the colored side of foil facing UP and gently rub to transfer. Then remove the sheet to reveal the stunning result!

Lastly, put the finishing touches on the gift box with rhinestones, pearls, and bow using Adhesive Dots like the first box.
