If you are my regular blog reader, you knew I love to make boxes. I made so many of them I lost count.
I made a lot of this box. I was running low on red card stocks
so this was what I did
Next box is also the top note box. I decorated the box with the scallop punch Christmas tree. I made this box last year also with the same scene except this time I brayed the blue sky instead of used blue card stock like last year. Oh, yes, I saved some more papers.
To make the Christmas tree, you'll need the scallop circle punch
and cut the scallop piece into 4 pieces like this: 5 scallops, 4 scallops, 3 scallops, and 2 scallops. Glue the four pieces together with the 5 scallops at the bottom, then the 4 scallops, then the 3 scallops and last the 2 scallops.
Since I made so many of these boxes I thought I will share a trick that I discovered that made a perfect box.
When I first made these boxes, the bottom box was always crooked because the lid and the box were the same size. And when I closed the lid, I had to squeeze the box so the lid will fit. Not any more, here was what I discovered
to make the box you'll need 6" x 9" card stock and Scor Pal
score on the 6" size 1" on both sizes. I am using the right side of the scor pal so I scored at 11" and 7"
turn to the 9" size and place the card stock all the way to the right of the scor pal at the 12" size
and score @ 11", 8", 7"
Then move the card stock all the way to the left of the score pal and score at 1" and I marked that section for "lid" because that section is bigger the other section.
So I made two diagonal cut like this.
now when I closed the box, it looks much better.
I hope this will help you make a better box.
As always, thanks for looking!
