Can you believe it is really 2012? I hope you all had a wonderful New Year’s Day and that 2012 is your best year ever!
I love getting gift towers filled with cookies or candy and thought it would be fun to make a gift tower for a Valentine’s Day gift for a friend. My homemade tower will be filled with chocolate, cookies and cocoa packets.
To make the gift tower I used my new Sweet Tooth Boxes cartridge. Did I mention this is my new favorite cartridge? This cart contains lots of amazing boxes and inserts that you can size to meet any of your needs. The square box and lid are on page 60. I used the lid with the scalloped edges and circle window and lined the lid with acetate. Unfortunately the cut out circle doesn’t show up in my photos but it is super cute! The first tower and lid is cut at 11 inches, the second at 10, and the smallest at 9 inches. I used double sided paper so the inside looked as nice as the outside.
All that is left is to line the boxes with tissue paper, fill and wrap like a package. These are an easy yet elegant gift that can be custom sized. Next time, I am going to try making a smaller jewelry tower.
Thanks for visiting and stay tuned for a fun new video combining jewelry making with card making!
