The Hop is closed! Winner of the Dreaming Tree gift certificate will be posted later today!
Welcome to the Dreaming Tree SVG files blog hop!
This Star Box by Dreaming Tree (3Dsvg.com) is a fabulous way to share a fun gift for Dads or that special guy.
This is a fabulous file and it's EASY to put together if you need a quick gift box. I used the eclips2 and eCal2 software to cut the file. Papers were from my stash. You'll need some quick dry glue, glue dots. If you need some help putting the box and lid together, you'll find the step by step video instructions here.
I used a piece of glitter stock for the large star, but it looked dull next to the blue paper -- Pearl Ex to the rescue. A few quick brushes with 3 different colors brought it to life.
The star is attached using glue dots... easy, peasy and no waiting for the glue to dry! Add the silver star - I chose glue dots for that as well.
The tag is made of wood, painted with white acrylic. Add your sentiment (FSJ Star Marquee- hostess gift) and let dry - Add a little Pearl Ex to the tag as well. Feel free to add a few more embellishments if desired.
To hang the tag, you can either tape the hanging string to the inside of the lid OR punch a hole in the top of the box base and thread through. Add a removable glue dot to the back of the tag to hold it in place for delivery.
This box is BIG! It holds lots of goodies! Finished size of the box bottom is 5in wide x 10in tall x 4 in deep. I'm filling this box with some of my hubby's favorite treats! He'll be in heaven!
