Holiday Build-A-Box from Amber Lawrence

Supplies Needed:
· Stardream Metallic Crystal cardstock, cut to 11 x 11”
· Via Linen Leaf Green cardstock, small piece that will work with chosen punch
· Coordinating patterned paper, 4 pieces each cut to 3 7/8 x 2 7/8”
· Ribbon
· Nesting circle punches (smaller one and larger one for a mat)*
· Label style punch*
· Sentiment stamp that will fit in smaller circle punch*
· Scoring board
· Ink
· Adhesive (I used Mono Multi and Pop-dots)
· Scissors
· Hole punch
* The punches and stamp can easily be changed to fit your own design.


Steps:
· Score white cardstock at 4” and 7”; turn and score again at 4” and 7”. This will create a tic-tac-toe look on your cardstock. Using scissors or paper trimmer, cut off each of the four corners. Use the score lines as a guide. Your cut cardstock should look like a plus sign.

· Adhere the 3 7/8 x 2 7/8 pieces of coordinating patterned paper to each of the “flaps”.
· Punch 2 holes in each flap in the upper left and right corners.
· Thread pieces of ribbon through holes on flaps to connect them and create a box.
· Stamp sentiment and punch out tag elements. (Stamp on one of the cut out corners to save paper.) Assemble tag.


· Fill your box with goodies and attach the tag.

· Give to a friend and fill their holidays with cheer!
