It's tutorial time at The Kraft Journal and this go around I'm going to show you how to create a cute little gift box. I'll give you a link to where I got this idea at the end of the tute.
This first picture shows you the pattern you need to make the box. You'll need to cut two (2) of these. The dotted lines need to be scored and the solid lines need to be cut. I used Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock from Kraft Outlet.
Flip your pattern up side down and place a mark at the 1 1/2" point on each of the 2" x 3" panels.
7 Gypsies Savannah seam binding seam binding threaded through the flaps.
Scalloped Grungy Prim Tag with the word love stamped on it and a Spellbinder Fleur De Lis medallion I cut in half.
Hope you liked the project. You can definitely resize this up to about a 4" x 4" box if you used 12" x 12" paper. I almost hate to give you the link for where I got this idea from because her project is just gorgeous and a lot more elaborate than mine. :-) I can always count on her for lots of inspiration--Marianne's Papirverden. She doesn't give any directions so this is strictly my trial and error instructions.
I'd like to enter this project into the following challenges:
The Cutie Pie Challenge--anything but a card
Fairy Fun Fridays--anything but a card
Hope to see you for the challenge this week!
