1. Start with a piece of 11" x 6" card stock.
2. Score the longer side at 4-1/2" and 6-1/2".
3. Score the shorter side at 1-1/4" and 4-3/4".
If you are using a Scor-Pal, line the card stock up with the arrow between the 3" and 4" mark and then score at 5", turn your card stock, line it up at the arrow again and score at 5" again.
4. Now, with scissors or your paper trimmer, cut the 4 score lines 4-1/2" up at each 1-1/4" mark.
5. Cut 2-1/2" off each of the four 1-1/4" strips.
6. This is what your cardstock should look like now (fingers crossed).
7. Fold the side flaps in and then secure. I used Provo Craft's Terrifically Tacky Tape.
8. Fold the front and back flaps up and hold, punch a hole in both, and then tie together with ribbon.
Clear as mud...right?...lol! I do hope this helps. This box idea came from my friend Lauren Salzberg. Let me know how your creations come out if you try these. I'd love to see them! I mounted a front panel with Storage Units, Ink and More's Indian Maiden on my original one, but I bet these would look wonderful with randomly stamped images on the card stock even before you begin scoring and cutting. I think I'll use this sample one for Christmas. Thanks so much for stopping by...Toodles! :D
