Stampin’ Up! products aren’t just for making cards. You can create scrapbooks (or as they are now commonly called – memory books), home décor items, treat holders, gift boxes and so much more. I wanted to try something a little different today with the Snowflake Sentiments bundle – a gift box.
I have had my Simply Scored Scoring Tool since it was first introduced several years ago, but I often forget to use it. This scoring board makes it super easy to add score lines to paper of any size (up to 12″ x 12″) every 1/8th of an inch. You can create gift boxes and bags for nearly all of your holiday gift giving needs. Here is the box that I made.
I started with an 8.50″ x 11″ piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock, scored and cut as shown on the diagram below:
On the 11″ side you will score at 1″, 5″, 6″ and 10″. On the 8.50″ side you will score at 1″ and 7.50″. Fold and burnish with bone folder all score lines.
You will cut on the solid red lines (which are also score lines) and then cut off each corner to allow for a cleaner seal. Add adhesive to the outside of each tab and attach to the inside of the side panel. Do this for all tabs. You will end up with a one piece box with a fold top. (NOTE: Before you adhere the tabs to the sides on the top, use a 1″ or 3/4″ circle punch to cut a notch in the middle of the flap (as shown in the third picture above.)
Finished box measures approximately 6.50″ x 4″ x 1″.
Here are the Stampin’ Up! products that I used in the design of this card, all of which can quickly be added to your shopping cart by clicking on their thumbnails below:

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you leave here inspired to put stamps to ink to paper. Until next time, stamp on my friends.
