- Paper cutter with scoring blade
- One 7 1/2" square of cardstock or patterned paper for box bottom
- One 4 1/4" square of cardstock or patterned paper for box lid
- Sticky Strip™
- Additional cardstock for inside message and embellishment for lid (optional)
Step 1Take the 7 1/2" piece of cardstock and score at 2 1/2" and 5" on one side.
Step 2Turn the cardstock 90 degrees and score at 2 1/2" and 5". There will be nine 2 1/2" squares scored on your cardstock.
Step 3Score the four corner squares diagonally from the outside corner in towards the middle square.
Step 4Stamp the box bottom.
Step 5Prefold all scores. Fold the diagonal scores in towards the middle of the box.
Step 6 (Optional)Add a message or saying to the box center.
Step 7Take the 4 1/4" piece of cardstock or patterned paper and score it at 7/8" on each side.
Step 8On two opposing sides, cut the vertical score lines until they intersect with the horizontal ones. That will make the glue tabs.
Optional: Cut the glue tabs down a bit to make sure they won't show when the tabs are taped to the sides of the lid.
Step 9With the right side of the lid facing up, add Sticky Strip™ to the glue tabs.
Step 10Prefold all scores and adhere glue tabs to the sides of the lid.
Step 11Decorate the top of the lid with cut out image or tag, add a little ribbon, and your box is done.
