Hinged Box – Glitter Queen Blog Hop

Hinged Box – Glitter Queen Blog Hop

Hi Everyone! Thanks for stopping by our Glitter Queens Monthly Blog Hop! We are thinking outside the box…by creating boxes for you!

What I love about this box is that it has a HINGED or attached Lid!

Here’s some ideas of what you could gift in it!

  •  3″x3″ Notecards and envelopes
  •  Bracelets and other jewlery
  •  Candy (giggle…always candy!)
  •  Gift cards
  •  Any other small gift fitting the inside dimensions of ~ 3-1/2″  x 1-1/4″
  •  Party Favors

 If you use the Gift Box Punch Board, it make the tab cuts for you and looks more finished.

We are entering a phase in our family of weddings and babies! I have my box decorated for my niece’s wedding shower. This box is inspired from a pillow box swap from Kris Miller.

Box Measurements:

  • 6-3/8″ x 11-3/8″.  (Will need a 12″x 12″ cardstock size to start. If you want to use Petal Pink, you can get the Subtles Collection or the Floral Romance Cardstock Pack. Or Uses 12x12 Whisper White)
  • Score along the 11-3/8″ side at: 1-3/8″, 3-3/8″, 6-3/8″, 8-3/8″
  • Score along the 6-3/8″ side at: 1-3/8″, 5″
  •  TIP! in my Video Tutorial (below) I’ll show you how you can use the Gift Bag Punch Board to make professional looking tabs. 
  •  If you don’t have the Gift Bag Punch Board yet, you can use the cut guide above to cut your tabs. They just won’t be as fancy!

Designer Paper Measurements

  • For Box: 3-1/4′ x 2-3/”, 3-1/4″ x 1-3/4″
  •  For Top Banner Accent: 1-1/2″ x 4-1/4″

Other cardstock for Top  Banner Accent:

  • 2″ x 4-1/2″, 1″ x 4″

General instructions: See video for full instructions. Using measurements and template guide above, make box but do not glue flaps yet. Add designer paper while flat as it’s easier. Glue box tabs using Multipurpose Glue or Tear & Tape. Using the Banner Triple Punch, punch banner tails on the top accent layer. Glue layers together and score at 2″ along the long side. Glue to the lid.

Love Bites Box Valentine’s Treat Box – Love Is In the Air Blog Hop

Love Bites Box Valentine’s Treat Box – Love Is In the Air Blog Hop


Hi Everyone!

Welcome to another Glitter Queen Blog Hop! Love is in the Air  is our theme this month. Valentine’s Day right around the corner but still plenty of time to bring in items if need be.

Today I have a treat box that holds cake bites! At least that’s what my local bakery WhatchamaCAKES calls theirs. They are cake pops minus the stick! You can find cake pans that bake this size too. You can also use any candy. Below is shown with Roche Ferraro and Lindor Truffles candies too. But don’t you think the cake bites are a cute change of pace?! Plus I thought it a fun to name it Love Bites. Depending on your mood it can be taken 2 ways!

I focused on products from All My Love Product Suite. For me, I get more value when I purchases within a suite of products as they are designed to work together…NO GUESSING!
Product List


Cardstock (CS)Box: 5″ x 6-3/4″   Score 1-1/2″ all 4 sides

All My Love Designer Paper(DSP) box wrap. 8″ x 4″. Score along the 8″ side at 1″, 2-1/2″ x 4-1/2″, 6″

General Instructions. 
Version 1:

  1. Cut and score CS and DS as noted about and shown in the pictures.
  2. Add Tear & Tape to tabs of box and DSP wrap.
  3. Assemble box.
  4. With a 3/4″ Circle Punch, punch top of one side to help slide out box.
  5. Wrap DSP around and glue. DO NOT glue to the box. This allows the box to slide out.

Version 2 with window: Repeat steps  1-4

  • With Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies, die cut heart shape on wrap BEFORE assembling.
