DVD Gift Box Video Tutorial

I had so much fun making my video tutorial for Faux Wax Seals that I couldn't wait to do another one! I was inspired to create a tutorial for DVD sized gift boxes because members of my family usually have DVD's on their Christmas wish lists. I thought it would be nice to make my own boxes and then share the dimensions and steps with anyone else wanting to give it a try. You can watch the tutorial here, but before you do that here are the basic supplies you'll need:
  • 2 pieces of cardstock cut to 7.5" x 9.75"
  • Martha Stewart Scoring Board
  • Adhesive

I also used my Tonic/Tim Holtz paper distresser and then of course whatever you want to use as your embellishments to make your box uniquely yours!

Here is a look at a couple of my finished boxes... I got to use my fabulous new La Blanche Santa stamps and some good ol' distress inks for these. I also added a dash of Glimmer Mists and Perfect Pearls Mists to finish them off.

I hope you enjoy the tutorial. Perhaps I should warn you- this tutorial runs close to 18 minutes long, but you can take what you want and leave the rest! Have a beautiful Christmas and a fantastic holiday!

As always

  1. A great tutorial! I'm planning to give a DVD to someone very special this Valentine's day and I wanna use this box to make it more presentable. I hope to see more of your 'new post' Angela. I've been having a lot of fun reading your blogs.
