Hexagon Gift Box with a Flourish

I was recently asked to make a gift box to fit a particular body lotion bottle.  This lidded hexagon box came to mind and it was perfect!  It’s a lovely looking box when finished and super easy.  I just altered the height to fit the bottle and decorated to suit.  This one fits a bottle up to 7 1/2″ tall.

I love the combination of Blushing Bride and Always Artichoke.  I have had this Always Artichoke cardstock in my stash for over a year and never touched it, suddenly I seem to be addicted to it and have just ordered a new pack!  I’ve added some copper embossing with the Flourishing Phrases set, just to give it a lift with some shine.

The paper rose on the lid adds to the elegance.  This is made with the Pansy Punch,  I’ve just punched 6 flowers from Fresh Fig cardstock, curled them a little around the end of a paintbrush and layered them on top of each other.  The gold faceted gem in the centre just seems to bring it to life.  Did you notice the copper trim?  Isn’t it neat how you can just spread the ends out a bit to give a different look!

The label is from the Birthday Blooms set and is stamped in Always Artichoke.  I had a bit of a blank space above it so I used the Flourish thinlit dies to cut a copper foil flourish to fill the space and add a different texture.  A bit of Fresh Fig ribbon and wallah, one pretty hexagon box!

The dimensions for the basic structure of the box are:

  • Blushing Bride Base  11 3/4″ x 11 1/2″
  • Score long side – 1 7/8″, 3 3/4″, 5 5/8″,  7 1/2″, 9 3/8″ and 11 1/4″
  • Score short Side 2 1/2″, 10″ (the 2 1/2″ end is the bottom flaps, the other end has shorter flaps which I fold to the inside for reinforcing)
  • Always Artichoke Panels – 1 1/2″ x 7 1/4″
  • Blushing Bride Lid – 4 3/4″ x 12″
  • Score Long side – 2″, 3 7/8″, 5 3/4″, 7 3/4″, 9 5/8″, 11 1/2″
  • Score short side – 2 1/2″, 4″ ( the 2 1/2″ end forms the lid top, the shorter flaps on the other end fold in for reinforcing)
