5 Days Until Christmas

Sunday, December 20, 2015

Lots of wrapping of gifts happens these last few days
leading up to Christmas.  In our house someone is
always looking for a box.  Here is a cute box
you can make.  Just follow this FREE easy tutorial.

 8 1/2 x 11 Sheet of Card Stock
Score along the 8 1/2 inch side at 2 1/2 and 6
Score along the 11" side at 2 1/2, 5, 7 1/2, and 10
Cut out the outside two small tabs
Cut out the outside two squares just under the two
tabs you just cut away
 Cut into the middle two outside squares to
leave two triangles
Cut up to the 2 1/2 inch mark.  
Now use your bone folder to score.
Apply double sided tape as shown above. 
Adhere together.
Voila!  A box.  Now let's decorate it. 

Layer the sides with Stampin' Up!
Designer Series Paper, I used Home for Christmas.
3 pieces 3 1/4 x 2 1/4
and 2 pieces 2 1/4 x 2 1/4
I used the Gold Glitter Ribbon and I tucked it 
under the front lip so you could open and 
close the box without undoing the ribbon.
I used the bow builder punch and gold
glimmer paper to create the bow on top.  
And that is how simple it is to create a 
gorgeous box.  

Thanks for visiting today!
