Can this Gable box get any cuter? It's actually super easy to make!
First, I embossed my gable box with the Swirls and Curls embossing folder. It fits perfectly inside the embossing folder as long as you don't worry about the bottom, and no one will see that anyway.
Since the box is thicker than card stock, you will only need one plate to emboss it. However, you will need to add a shim or two depending on the calibration of your Big Shot. In my case, I took two pieces of the thin chipboard that comes in our DSP and it went through perfect. (I tried one piece and it wasn't enough). Just make sure not to force your Big Shot!
Once your DSP is cut, put tear and tape on the top and bottom of the back. I applied it from one end to the other so that it would be sure and stick. Decide which side you want to be the front of your box and then turn the box over. Centering the DSP, slowly adhere it to the box winding your way to the front. There will be a slight gap in the front, but that is okay because we will cover it.
I used a greeting from the Sincerely Santa stamp set. The Starburst Punch and 2" Circle Punch made the perfect background. Use dimensionals on the greeting.
The Signs of Santa stamp set will make perfect cutouts for this that you can color, but I ended up using the Santa's Workshop DSP. Is gorgeous paper with flocking and works with the Thinlits.
Finish off with Metallic Edge Ribbon at the top and Rhinestones.
I made several different versions!
