Special Gift Box

Have you ever been in a pinch and needed a special small gift box?  If you have 12x12 cardstock and a few embellishments you have your special gift box right under your nose!


Supplies:
Snow Strip Glitter Cardstock 2 sheets Back side
Arrows Teal Glitter Chipboard
Paris Fleur Glitter Chipboard
Ribbon
Double Sided Tape
Glue Stick

I love the back side of the Snow Strip Glitter Cardstock!


 
Rough draft of the box plan!


For the box base: Score a 12x2 sheet at 4 & 8 inches turn and score the other direction at 4 and 8 inches.  Fold on the score lines.

 
For the box top: Cut another piece 6 1/8 by 6 and 1/8, score one inch from the edge on al four side. fold on the score lines


Cut to the center one side of each flap on the top. Use double sided tape to adhere flaps.

 
The finished box top. 

Pictured how the box bottom should be cut.

Double side tape applied to the flap and inside of the box as pictured.

 
Remove tape one corner at a time to create corners of the box.
 

 
Ready for the second corner.

Work around the box until all corners are taped


  HERE IS THE FINISHED BOX  before embellishments!
