Merry Christmas Box

It's a double posting day for me. Be sure to check out the Clearsnap blog hop. Today, Scor-Pal is starting monthly challenges! On the first Monday of every month you'll be given a new challenge and there will be prizes!

Today's challenge is very easy.....we want you to make a BOX!




Starting with an 8"x8" piece of cardstock or heavy pattern paper, I scored the paper at 1", 3", 5" and 7". Then I turned the paper 90 degrees and scored again at 1", 3", 5" and 7". Once that is done, cut away all but the center square on each side.



Turn paper on an angle and score the corners diagonally, then fold on all score lines.



Add score tape to the 1" flaps. As you fold the box together, the flaps will fold inside to hold the box shape. Add a 1" strip of cardstock around the top of the box and the sentiment and you've got a cute little gift box to work with.




These little guys measure 2"x2", andd are so quick and easy to make. How about using them as table decorations for the upcoming holidays, filling them with candies or other little goodies for friends and family.

Supplies:
Score tool: Scor-pal
Pattern paper: Basic Grey
Ink: Clearsnap Destinations
Stamp: Hero Arts
Dies: Spellbinders, Nestabilities
Embossing Powder: Clearsnap
