Here it is finally as promised – the tutorial for the Simply Scrappin’ Kit Card box which I learned how to make at the London Stampede last weekend.
From one piece of 12″ x 12″ solid coloured cardstock, cut a piece 12″ x 9 1/2″ for the box bottom.
Working along the 12″ side score 2 1/2″ in, at one end, then 2 1/2″ in, at the other end.
Now align the paper so that you are working along the 9 1/2″ side and score 3 1/2″ in on one side and then 3 1/2″ in on the other side.
Crease along the score lines with a bone folder, then cut the flaps as shown in the picture above.
Measure the halfway point along the 12″ side of the cardstock, and then 2″ down, and make a little mark with a pencil.
Adhere a sticker over the pencil mark and put an eyelet in the center.
Using sticky strip fold up one of the sides and attach it to the center flaps.
Again using sticky strip, fold up the other side. The base of your box is now complete.
For the top of your box, take a piece of printed 12″ x 12″ cardstock at cut it at 7″ x 5″. Working on the 5″ side, score 1″ in on one side and then 1 1/2″ in from the other side. Fold along the scored lines with your bone folder.
Place sticky strip along the 1″ flap.
Before adhering to your box bottom, working along the 7″ side, find the center and then attach another sticker so that it is also centered between the top and bottom of the 1 1/2″ flap. Again put an eyelet in the center of the sticker.
When attaching the top to the bottom it is easiest to align correctly when you have the top laying on the table, and you position the box on the top as shown in the picture above. Remove the backing from the sticky strip and fold and adhere the 1″ flap upwards.
As a last step, cut 2 pieces of grosgrain ribbon so that they are 9″ long. Tie a knot on one end of each and then feed it through the eyelets, so that the knot is on the inside of the box.
You’re all done! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. Any questions please leave them in the comments section and I’ll reply in the comments section as well. Have fun!
