Here we have another incredible idea for holiday gift giving! Behold, Maria Cole's amazing 12 Days of Christmas gift box display! This multi-functional project is perfect for festive home decor or for small gifts and treats! Have a wonderful time making these fabulous holiday treasures with the step-by-step tutorial that Maria created! This sweet project is a wonderful way to get into the holiday spirit! Here is what Maria had to say about this splendid work of art!
"I LOVE Christmas, and want to show everyone how easy it is to make a beautiful home décor piece for this magical holiday! Take this stack of boxes for example. I made these boxes strictly from Graphic 45’s beautiful 12 Days of Christmas line with the help of my trusty Scor-Pal! Once you start making these boxes, you can let your creativity run wild as to how you’ll decorate them. The smallest box can be made with 6” x 6” paper, so it’s a great template for making some festive little Christmas “presents” or treats to give away!" -Maria

Overall note: Before cutting your paper, carefully read the entire directions and observe photos to ensure you make the correct cuts. You will use your scraps from each paper to fussy cut as many little pieces as you like to decorate your boxes.
Step 1. Assemble 5” x 5” box bottom
Cut Golden Rings to 9” x 9” per photo. Score at 2” on each side. Make one cut on each side of your paper, up to the point where your score lines meet. Apply Scor-Tape to ends, then fold to create the base for your box.
Step 2. Assemble 5” x 5” box lid
Cut 12 Days of Christmas to 8 5/8” x 8 5/8” per photo. Score 1.75” on each side. Before cutting, apply your favorite edge punch along each side. For this project, I used Martha Stewart’s Doily Edge punch. Make one cut on each side of your paper, up to the point where your score lines meet. Apply Scor-Tape to ends, then fold to create the lid for your box. Place lid on top of bottom.
Step 3. Assemble 4” x 4” box bottom
Cut My True Love to 8” x 8” per photo. Score at 2”, make cuts, apply Scor-Tape, then fold.
Step 4. Assemble 4” x 4” box lid
Cut Pear Tree to 7 5/8” x 7 5/8” per photo. Score at 1.75”, punch around the edges, make cuts, apply Scor-Tape, then fold. Place lid on top of bottom.
Step 5. Assemble 3” x 3” box bottom
Cut Drummer’s Drumming to 7” x 7” per photo. Score at 2”, make cuts, apply Scor-Tape, then fold.
Step 6. Assemble 3” x 3” box lid

Step 9. Stack boxes, with the 5” x 5” box on the bottom. Adhere. Take your ribbon and tie around your stack of boxes, creating a bow on top.
Step 10. Use your 12 Days of Christmas 6” x 6” Patterns & Solids pad and a flower die, such as the Spellbinders Poinsettia die to create some dimensional flowers for your boxes.
Step 12. (Right side) Fussy cut and adhere some flowers and lords and ladies dancing. Adhere button and tag from Christmas Chipboard Die-cuts 1 and some red Petaloo flowers.
