Bunches of Beautiful Boxes with Steph Ackerman

Good morning, Steph  here with a really fun way to spruce up those little tissue boxes that are all over the house.  The original tutorial can be found on Diane Zechman's blog - here.

To create the box, cut 2 pieces of  cardstock 5 1/8" x 9 1/2".
With the long sides at the top of the Scor-pal, score each piece at 1/2" and 5".

To create the top, cut another piece of cardstock  6 1/2"  x 6 1/2".
Score at 1" around all 4 sides.

Cut in on each side to the score line.

Add Scor-tape to the 1/2" sides of the box pieces and assemble the pieces together.
Add Scor-tape to the cut tabs on the box top and assemble to form the top.

Cut yellow pattern paper 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" - this will fit the box top.
Tape a Spellbinders circle die in the center of the pattern paper and run through your die cut machine.

Die cut a scalloped circle from coordinating pattern paper to achieve a nice finished edge.

Adhere the scalloped piece to the top.
Add Scor-tape around the box top and adhere the pattern paper on top.

Cut 4 pieces of pattern paper 4 1/4" x 1 1/2".
Punch the long edges of each piece.
Ink each piece with brown ink and adhere along the edges of the box top.

Cut 4 pieces of striped pattern paper 5" x 4 1/4".
Adhere each to the sides of the box.
Ink the edges of the box with brown ink.

Thanks for stopping by today.
