How to make a Itty Bitty Birthdays Curvy Keepsake Boxes

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I have a super cute little gift packaging idea for you that's great for birthdays wedding shower favors or anything really.  The great part is they are super easy to do.  You just need the die set, a few sheets of 6 x 6 designer series paper or cardstock a little ribbon and a stamp set with ink.  Here's a look at what I created during my Facebook Live last Wednesday.  


During the Live I actually made five little treat boxes in all the 2019-2021 In Colors; Rococo Rose, Sea Side Spray, Pretty Peacock, Purple Posy, and Terracotta Tile.  I have not decorated them all yet but I asked my viewers if they wanted to see the Mini Curvy Keepsake Box in all five colors and of course they did so I made them.  Really the secret to making these projects are in the Mini Curvy Keepsake Box Dies.  These dies make it so easy to whip out as mini of these little boxes as you want.  It's great with the die set because the die not only cuts everything but it puts the score marks in as well.

One other great things about this die set is it only takes one sheet of 6 x 6 cardstock or designer series paper to make the box.  So if you are using designer series paper you could whip out 48 in no time.  Think about how fast that would be to make party favors.  They only hold a few pieces of candy but really that's all you need for a little gift.  


To get the nice rounded look that you see in the picture above I used my bone folder and just gave each side a little bend.  It didn't take anytime at all.  I used some scrap Whisper White cardstock and cut out the banner and tag   The tag die came from the stamp set.  With this die set you have a few options on the tags.  There's a heart, the oval (that I used here), a square, a circle and a star.  Plus a couple extra little dies to use to add to your design.  


I stamped my greeting in Seaside Spray Classic Ink onto the 1/2" strip of Whisper White Cardstock and made the ends in to a fishtail banner.  I attached it to the tag with a Stampin' Dimensional.  I then added the tag with a little Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon.  For the other box I colored the Gold Edged Metallic Ribbon with my Stampin' Blends to make a matching ribbon.
