Hi Everyone Happy Wednesday To You!
We are making an easy peasy box!
This box is perfect to hold treats, trinkets, toys, and also great for class parties.
Here is what you need:
Red Cardstock: 8.5 x 5.5 and 1 @ 1.5 x 2
Score at 2 inches on the 5.5 side
Score at 2, 4, 6, and 8 on the 8.5 side
White Cardstock: 2 @ 1.75 x 3.25 and 1 @ 1.25 x 1.75
Red Ink (or ink to match cardstock)
Odorless Mineral Spirits (optional)
Here is the how to:
Using a bone folder, crease all score marks. Remove the smaller bottom corner on .5 inch side. Cut on all the score marks on the 2 inch side ONLY up to score mark. (see diagram below)
Put glue on small flap of box and fold over to assemble box. Tuck 3 bottom sides down and place glue on the last side to close the bottom of the box.
Stamp the 3 smaller candies from the stamp set with black ink all over both of the (1.75 x 3.25) white pieces. Color the shapes in. (I used colored pencils with a blending stump and odorless mineral spirits), you can use just pencils or markers. Glue these pieces to the front and back of the box.
Stamp the “You make life sweet” with red ink on the (1.25 x 1.75) white piece. Glue the (1.5 x 2) red to the front of the box, and use foam squares to attach the greeting to the red. Push in on the sides of the box to close. I used a binder clip for the closure, you can also use a clothespin, or punch holes at the top for ribbon.
I hope all of you have a Wonderful Wednesday. Hugs, Stacy ♥
