This is Jasleen posting today. Season of weddings has arrived here and we all wish our gifts to have a unique touch to them, isn’t it?  I made a couple of gift boxes that I think would make a nice packaging idea for the gifts for a couple.

gift boxes for all occasion sizzix die

Products used :-

Sizzix Big Shot Express Machine Only(White and gray)

Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 6 PK- Every Occasion by Sophie Guilar (661383)

Sizzix Bigz Die- Gerbera Bloom by Sophie Guilar (661073)

Patterned Papers- Lawn Fawn,Papericious

Gold glitter paper

Water colour paper (200 gsm) for making the flower

Distress inks- abandoned coral, mowed lawn

White Ribbon, pearls, etc.



  • For making the Gerbera flower, I started by running the sandwich (cutting plate> die facing upwards> three layers of paper>cutting plate on the top) through the Big Shot.
  • I wanted three layers of petals to make my Gerbera bloom so I ran the die with three layers of watercolour paper, giving me all the die cuts I need to make this flower in one go. That saves time and that’s a big plus point in favour of Bigz dies over the other kinds of dies.
  • Check out the pictures below for the steps in making of the flower :-



I’m not much into making handmade flowers, but even I was surprised to see how well this one turned out. And it’s so easy to do.



  • Each gift box measures approximately 7.5 by 7.5 by 3 centimeters and can be easily made from an A4 sized sheet of paper.
  • The Every Occasion die set contains 6 pieces, which includes a couple of dies for making a gorgeous bow.
  • Below are the pictures showing its making –


These are very easy to put together and make a great gifting or party favour option too. Perfect die if you make gift boxes in bulk.


I hope you liked the idea. You can also get creative and make so many different varieties of such boxes depending on the occasion, such as cartoon-themed boxes for kids’ birthdays; pink or blue boxes for baby showers, etc. Do share with us whatever you come up with using these dies. :)

See you all next week.
