Week #5 of our 12 Weeks of Christmas Tutorials: Cute packaging with DeNetra!

Hello friends, Today is DeNetra's contribution to our 12 Weeks of Christmas Tutorials with some great packaging ideas.  I'll be back tonight with our NEW RELEASE ANNOUNCEMENT!  For now, take it away, DeNetra...
Hey Everyone ! I have a easy yet fun idea to share with you. Christmas is around the corner, and I want to show how to dress up simple and sweet gifts for family and friends. 
Round Box 
 Cut a strip of paper to 4 x 11 1/2 
score it every 1/4 inch

accordion fold it 
 Glue the ends together (it should look like a tube)
Roughly trace the tube on to some paper...cut our your does not have to be perfect
also cut out a strip of paper that is 1 inch by 11 1/4 
fold it in half
cut slits down one half 

Glue the flaps from you strips under the circle (as shown) 
Some flaps will overlap...that is okay :) 
You should end up with this....
You can glue your above "lid" to the inside or out side of your tube....
this creates and bottom....

Here is the finished project...

Candy Pouch
this one is super easy....
Cut out to same sized squares 
place candy in the middle...
 Glue or sew all sides together....
Here is the finished cute...
Tulle Wrapped Box

I made a can make any size you wish..
and just wrap it with adds such an elegance...
...sentiment can be found HERE...

Here are the measurements for my long box.... 
cut 2 sheets to 4 x 7
take one of those sheets and do the following 
 (with the 7 inch side at the top)
score:  6 on both side and on the other 6 1/8
(with the 4 inch side at the top)
score: 3 on both sides  and on the other 3 1/8
the bigger of the 2 is the lid... 
What a GREAT idea, DeNetra!  Thank you so much for your tutorial!
