Papertake Weekly Box Tutorial

Todays challenge over at Papertake Weekly is to create a big box out of 2 sheets of paper. Don't worry it is very easy. I will give you 2 scoring measurements to give you as much freedom as possible on what you can use this box. The first measurements are perfect for the small US size cards (you can use the box to add like 10 cards with envelopes as a present) the bigger size box is for the size cards i make my Magnolia cards. You can also use this box sort of as a nice decorated file folder box for your stamped images you got from friends. It's all up to your imagination - think outside the box :-) Stamps: Magnolia Spring Summer 2008 "Baby Alwin", Swirls behind Alwin Rhonna Farrer (stamped in barely Banana), Polkadots on the tissue paper is Stampin up: Polka-dot Posies CS/DP: Stampin up: Barely Banana, Chcoloate Chip, Soft Sky, Afternoon Tea DPTools/Embellishments: Nestabilities classic and scalloped, Stampin up large star punch, Soft Sky double stichted ribbon, Martha Stewart embossing punch

You will need:
2 sheets of 8.5 x 11 cardstock
Hint: 1 sheet will make half of the box (look at pic no 2 this will help)
Small version: Score Vertically at 4 3/4 (this devides the top of the box from the bottom)
Score Horizontally at 5 3/4 and at 9 1/2. You are left with a 1 1/2 inch tab that you use to glue the two sheets togehter. You will need to cut the bottom corner off (see pic below for cutting)

Bigger version
Score Vertically at 6"Score Horizontally at 6.5 / 10"Hint: when you glue box together make sure that the tab is at the inside of your box and fold the smaller bottom parts first in and than the bigger one on top- this will give you a nice edge and a finished look on the outside. Decorate your box.This is how one half will look like. Now you attach on the flap the other side of your box with double sided tape.
some credit for this idea needs to be given to my fabulous SU Demo
