Tiny Take Out Box by Tya Smith

Hello everyone! I was really excited about the assignment that we were given for this month to give our take on a project from the existing projects on Before I was on the Design Team, I was constantly trying out all of these projects on my own and loved all the many talented designers that added their talents to the website.

I decided to do my project based on the Tiny Take Out box designed by the incredibly talented Beate Johns. Here is a link to the original post : Tiny Take Out Box.

I added a little St. Patrick's Day twist to my box since that fun holiday is just around the corner. (Plus any excuse to add some chocolate to ANY project is a plus in my book!) :) Here is a peek at the project:

 Supplies used:
8x8 black cardstock
Border Punch
 (2) 2  1/2 inch Scallop Cirlces (Used Echo Park Kiwi Tiny Dot)
(1) 2 inch circle
(2) 1 x 2 inch banners ( used Echo Park Kiwi Small Dot on the Stripe Side)
12 inchs gold tuelle
Pop Dots
Glitter Shamrock Button
28 gauge gold wire
Wood Skewer

Here are the Steps to make your own:

Step 1- take 8x8 Black Cardstock and score at 1, 3, 5, and 7 inches

Step 2:
Turn paper and score again at 1,3,5, and 7 inches in the other direction.

Step 3:
Cut off outer panels of the box as shown. Make sure to leave the center section intact. These will be the sections we fold over.

Step 4:
Turn the box on the diagonal and line up with the 6 inch mark. Scor each of these sections on all 4 corners of the box up to the intersecting score line as shown. 

Step 5:
Using a border punch - punch out the border on all of the taller sections of the box.

Step 6:
Trim off the sections that you scored on the 6 inch line as shown. These are the sections that fold into the inside of the box.

Step 7:
Fold all of the score lines so you have nice, crisp lines to work with. Add adhesive to the inside sections of the box as shown:

Step 8:
Add adhesive on ONE side of the inner flaps as shown inside the box, and glue these down. Take the wooden skewer and place it into one of the chocolate candies. Glue this candy to the bottom of the box with Scor-Tape.

Step 9:
Add Dimensional Adhesive to the outside flaps of the box on all 4 sides as shown.

Step 10:
Add gold tulle ribbon and tie around the box with the bow in front.Add the rest of the chocolate candies.

Step 11-
Add the (2) 2 1/2 inch  Scallop circles to the front and back of the skewer. Add the 2 inch white circle to the front of one of the scallop circles. Type a fun, festive sentiment ( I used fonts Expo and Amelie for my example.) Add green glitter shamrock button and thin gold wire to the sentiment.) Add the (2) 1x2 inch banners to the bottom of the scallop circles.

 Happy Scoring!
