Step 1 – Cut your Butterfly Garden patterned paper 06A to measure 10,5×7″.
Step 2 – Place the paper on the score board and score the following lines as per the diagram. Vertically on the short side at: 2,5″, 5″, 6,5″ Horizontally on the long side at: 2,5″, 5″, 7,5″ and 10″
Step 3 – Once all the scoring is done, use your bone folder to burnish all the lines and fold them.
Step 4 – Trim away the bottom edge spine area using your scissors.
Step 5 – Continue along the bottom and cut into the fold lines to the first horizontal scoreline only.
Step 6 – Start assembling the box. Add a thin line on adhesive on the thin spine area and adhere. Then add tape or adhesive to the bottom flaps and seal the box at the bottom.
Step 7 – Pinch the top edge inwards to create the seal at the top. Now decorate your box with the embellishment pack.
Seal the box with a little peg after filling it with chocolates or a small gift that is not too heavy. Decorate the front of your box and add ribbon and other elements as desired. This box is a slight adjustment to the measurements to make a taller milk carton. I simply adjusted the size of my patterned paper and when scoring i made the center part longer.
Quick and easy gift boxes that anyone can make. I love how the decorative elements from the Die-cut Ephemera pack can be layered on top of each other for a really stunning effect. And don’t forget to pick up your scoring board and guillotine trimmer from Couture Creations to make crafting so much easier.
Until next time – give the scoring board and these boxes and try and share your projects with us.
