Hi Everyone Happy Wednesday To You! Today I want to share a really simple and cute box.
We are making a 3 x 3 box that is perfect for any occasion.
Here is the box closed:
I am using the Fond Noel stamp set to create my own pattern paper, I love doing that.
Here is a closer look at the greeting for the top:
Here is what you need:
Cardstock for bottom: 7 3/16 x 7 3/16 (score at 2 on all 4 sides)
Cardstock for top: 6.25 x 6.25 (score at 1.5 on all 4 sides)
White Cardstock: 2 at 3 x 3
White Cardstock: 4 at 3 x 1.25
Scrap of white and bottom color
Fond Noel stamp set
Here is the assembly:
You want to do the stamping before the scoring otherwise you wont get an even stamped image. Starting with the piece for the bottom. Arrange three of the pinecones from the stamp set on an acrylic block, making sure they go in different directions. Stamp on all sides of the cardstock about 2 inches from the edges. Once finished, score at 2 inches on 4 sides.
On one of the (3x3) white pieces, stamp the pine cones again with the brown ink. Set aside. Using green ink and the three pine needles from the stamp set, arrange them on an acrylic block, just like we did the pine cones. Stamp the other (3x3) white piece and the 4 (3x1.25) pieces. On a scrap piece of white cardstock, stamp the greeting, I chose Fond Christmas Greetings.
To assemble the box, cut on two score marks on opposite sides. Put Art Glitter Glue on the tabs, and assemble. For the top of the box, attach the side strips and the top piece, then cut along the score marks just like the bottom piece. Use glue on the tabs.
For the greeting, I used an oval punch, but you can use any punch you have.
I created my own baker's twine by using a green marker and dotting it along a piece of hemp cord. On the back side of the greeting piece, I used sticky tape and then arranged the hemp cord how I liked it, making sure it hung over the edges. Place some foam squares on the back of this and place on top of box.
This is a great box to place trinkets or treats in. You can also use it to hold note cards. If you create this box, we would love to see it. You can share it on our Facebook Group!
Hope all of you have a Wonderful Wednesday. Hugs, Stacy ♥
