Wilderness Survival Box

Here's a  really fun project I created for Scor-pal using products from Simple Stories Take a Hike Collection.

This collection with it's earth tone colors and it's assorted array of patterns and elements made this  the perfect collection to create this Wilderness Survival Box.   Fill it with cards, mementos and little goodies from home so your little camper won't be lonely.

Cut cardstock to 12" x 7", then score at 4 1/2" and 7 1/2".  Fold on the scored lines.

Cut pattern paper 4 1/4" x 6 3/4" to cover both the front and back of the box.
Cut additional cardstock and pattern paper as decorative elements for the front of the box.

To create the sides of the box, cut 2 pieces of cardstock 6" x 2 1/2" and score every 1/2" across. 

Once folded, adhere the two end pieces to the larger cardstock panel to create the box.

Inside the box, add cardstock strips to create separate compartments by cutting 4 pieces of cardstock 7" x 2 1/2".  Score 1/4" on both ends, and adhere to the side panels created above.

Cut elements from the pattern paper collection and include inside the box.  And also add some goodies from home.

To create the top of the box, I used Spellbinders dies, cutting the bottom layer from cardstock and the top layer from pattern paper.

Fitting the cardstock to the box, create the back flap by scoring  at 1 1/2".
To create the front flap, score at  2".    
Cut the pattern paper into 3 sections to fit between the scored lines and then adhere each section.

Add assorted tickets and elements to the back of the box, inking the edges of each piece and matting each piece with cardstock before overlaying and adhering to the box. 

Add assorted elements and stickers to finish the top and front of the box.

To close the box, add a Velcro dot in the center of the front.
