I used the Under the Tree Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Kraft Card Stock to create a quick gift box. These boxes can be adjusted to the size needed by changing the beginning size of the paper and scoring measurements a bit.
For my gift box, I needed a 7-1/4″ x 6″ x 1-1/2″ box, so I started with two 9″ x 12″ panels, one cut from Under the Tree Specialty DSP and one cut from Kraft Card Stock.
I placed the Kraft panel on my Simply Scored Scoring Tool with 9″ side to the top and I scored the panel at 1-1/2″ and again at 7-1/2″.
Then I turned the panel 90 degrees and scored it at 7-1/4″ and again at 8-1/2″.
I placed the Under the Tree DSP panel on my Simply Scored Scoring Tool with the 9″ edge to the top and I scored it at 1-1/2″ and again at 7-1/2″. I turned the panel 90 degrees and scored it again at 4-1/2″ and again at 6″.
I used my Paper Snips and I cut both panels on the score lines from the edge to the 1-1/2″ and 7-1/2″ score points.
I placed the two panels face down and folded the them on the score lines.
I applied Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the shorter side of the Under The Tree DSP, this will end up being the back part of your box.
I placed the longer side of Kraft panel over the Under the Tree DSP panel and I adhered them together, making sure that I secured the side flaps well.
I applied Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the two small flaps on the Kraft card Stock, then folded the bottom of the box up and secured the flaps to the sides. If you use liquid glue, you will need to hold these for a second to make sure that the bond is secure.
I applied Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the two loose flaps on the Kraft panel and I adhered them to the outside of the box. This is another spot where you’ll need to hold the paper together for a second to get a good bond.
I applied Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the two small flaps on the Under the Tree DSP panel and I folded the box top so that the flaps would secure to the lid rather than the box base. This allows the box lid to open and close without completely destroying the box.
I added a velcro dot that I’d cut in half to the Kraft panel.
Then I peeled the backing off the other half of the velcro dot and closed the box lid. The velcro holds the box closed but allows it to easily be opened.
I added some of the beautiful Cherry Cobbler 1″ Sheer Linen Ribbon around the box closure and a I clipped a little tag on it.
Super quick and easy. The box only takes about 10 minutes to assemble. To see the details about how I embellished the box, check out my blog post here.
This is the coolest idea Amy! I’m off to try it!
Thanks Nada, have fun! Let me know if you have any questions. 🙂
Wow! Love to make boxes and this one is different! Gotta try it.
