For Your MistleToes!

Good afternoon to all! I had fun playing with my Smaller than a Breadbox December kit! I wanted to share the fun papers and embellishments with others so I created a gift for a friend who's birthday is VERY close to Christmas. Therefore a Christmas/Birthday present!

I am an avid Pinterest fan and got the idea for my gift from there - especially the punny sentiment - "For Your Mistletoes". I made another water bottle hanger but increased the measurements to create a box for all the goodies.

For Your MistleToes Gift Set

5 1/2" x 11" piece of cardstock
Paper cutter with scoring blade or a bone folder and ruler

Corner rounder
Circle Punch (I used a scallop circle punch)
Two Sided Tape
Additional cardstock / Pattern Paper

Step 1 Turn 5 1/2" x 11" piece of cardstock sideways and score at 4" and 4 1/2".

Step 2 Turn the cardstock lengthwise and score at 1/2", 1", 4 1/2", and 5".

Step 3 Cut away sections of cardstock as shown in the photo.
 Step 4
Cut a slit on both sides as shown so the squares become small tabs.
Step 5
Prefold all score lines.
Step 6
Round the corners of the long back panel.

Step 7
Punch a circle so the pouch can be slipped over a bottle. Here a scallop circle punch was used.


Step 8

Fold to create box and attach tabs to back with two sided tape or other strong adhesive.

Step 9

Decorate with cardstock, paper and embellishments from your December kit! Fill your hanger with nail polish, a nail file, and toe separators. Hang on a bottle of nail polish remover.


Thank you for stopping by and enjoy making gifts for others and layouts for you and yours!
