Bellas and Boxes...

I've been having fun playing with my Stamping Bella stamps this week. I felt like making a 3D project over the weekend. Do you like my little box? It is the perfect size to put a small gift, 3x3 cards, chocolate or tea bags in. Want to make one yourself? Thought so!
Start with a 1o x 5.5 piece of cardstock (I used a pretty double sided paper from Making Memories). Score the long side 1" from each edge. Score the shorted side at 3.5", 4.5", 8", and 9". Trim out the 4 tiny squares and fold all of your scored lines inward. Fold the box and glue the long flaps together (I used Terrifically Tacky Tape). Now fold the top pieces together. If you want a ribbon handle (I used SU's pink taffeta), cut a piece to your desired length, and stick the ends between the top flaps when you glue them. You might want to use a piece of the Tacky Tape on each side of the ribbon to make sure the sides stick together.
Now decorate the front however you'd like, and wah lah, you have a lovely little gift box to brighten someones day.
Here's a second view with the lid up. I put pop dots on only the bottom half of the scallop, so the lid tucks neatly under it to keep the box closed. Neat, huh?

Don't forget to leave me a comment on the previous post to get your name in for the drawing!
