For a swap I made these puffy boxes. A template can be downloaded here. Go ahead and take a look for inspiration because there are far more templates to be found!
Use your inkblending tool to rub colors distress ink all over the puffy box. Then take some water in your hand and flick droplets on the ink. Let dry naturally and you'll get those lovely grungy spots!
Stamp letters, cut them out and ink them in the color of your choice.
Add white accents with the white ink pen. Stamp random stamps on your puffy box. Notice the little dent I made in one of the flaps with a hole punch? This is for easier opening the box when then flaps are closed. Off course this flap will be folded first and on the inside.
Stamp a text stamp in black on one side and adhere the letters on the other side of the puffy box.
Use double sided tape to adhere the box and fold it together. Glue the flaps on one side (not the side with the little dent).
I made some atc's with "Holland" themes to fill the puffy box and off course I could not resist these adorable wooden shoes keyrings to add to the surprise!
even the littlest comment is greatly appreciated!
