- One 8 1/2" x 11" piece of Cardstock
- Paper Cutter with scoring tool
- Sticky Strip™ or other strong adhesive
- Corner Rounder
Step 1Score 11” side of cardstock at 1/2", 3 1/2", 5 3/4", and 8 3/4".
Step 2Score the 8 1/2” side at 3" and 6 1/2".
Step 3Fold the bottom of the card stock (the portion with the short scored sections) under and stamp across the exposed area of card stock.
Step 4Cut each score line up to the intersecting score line to create flaps as shown.
Step 5On one edge of the card stock, you’ll have 1/2” flaps.
Cut off the two 1/2" flaps on the ends, leaving the center flap.
Step 6Place Sticky Strip™ on the 1/2" flap.
Be sure to place the adhesive strip on the front (stamped) side. Leave the liner on the adhesive.
Step 7Place Sticky Strip™ on the other flaps as shown to createl interior sections of the box.
Leave the liner on the adhesive.
Step 8Center punch over panel and push the cardstock all the way into the Wide Oval punch to create handles for the box.
Step 9Use the corner rounder on the corners of the handles.
Step 10Peel the liner from the 1/2" flap on the side of the box (mid section).
Fold the box into shape so that the ends meet the adhesive. If necessary, fold the flaps out of your way.
Step 11Peel the liner from the side flaps and adhere them to the interior sides of the box for added stability.
Step 12Remove the liner from the bottom flaps.
Fold in the two smaller flaps and then adhere one of the longer flaps to the smaller flaps.
I fold in the flap that’s on the side where the seam is so the front of the box will be seamless.
Fold the remaining flap into place.
Step 13Decorate the front of the box. Use the Crop-a-Dile™ to punch holes for the ribbon closure.
