Team Gifts are a fantastic part of my Business

Yesterday I told you how I welcome new members to my team, but I do so much more than that.
One of the best events for me is when one of my Team hits a Milestone. 

Whether that is a first Milestone of hitting their first quarterly minimum or something more, like promoting, it will be time for a celebration and a gift from me.

Myths and Magic handmade gift box for a Team member

Today starts the process of putting together a gift package for one of my Team who has just hit her first quarterly minimum. I have put together a little pack of goodies and want to make a box to present them in. She loves Unicorns and Mermaids, so the Myths and Magic Suite were an obvious choice.

I chose the Mermaid paper, which is more a lightweight card, and matched it with Berry Burst Cardstock and Finely Woven Ribbon. I measured the dimensions I needed for the box base and sides and used these to calculate the size of card. In this case I needed the base of the box to be 6 x 5" (15 x 12.5) and the sides to be 2" (5cm). This meant I needed my card to be 10 x 9" (25 x 22.5cm)

As this is a box with a lid, I wanted to make sure that they were a snug fit, but not too tight. To do this I find it easiest to just trim 1/16" (1.5mm) from the top and side of the base. I then scored each side on my Simply Scored Board at 2" (5cm), turning it each time. The lid was scored at 7/8" and 2" (2.25 x 5cm) to allow for the lid to be reinforced.

Having constructed the box it was then a simple case of filling it with my signature yellow tissue paper and the present before tying it all together with ribbon and a bow.
Come back tomorrow to see the card I made to go with the present.
