Bunches of Beautiful Boxes with Lisa Silver

Hello!  It's Lisa with a tutorial for a quick gift!  I was inspired by Paula Goff's original project on the Scor-Pal site and thought I'd try my hand at it too.

Tools: Scor-Pal scoring board in inches, Scor-Tool, Scor-Envi, Scor-tape
Stamps: Spoon Me by Gina K Designs
Ink: Black Soot Distress ink by Ranger
Paper: Solar White by Neenah, Silver Ore Metallic and Black Onyx Metallic by, lightweight paper for envelopes (used computer printing paper)
Patterned Paper: Sunny Side by Pebbles
Other: 1-3/8" circle punch by EK Success, precision scissors, Lick and Stick envelope glue
Copic Markers: R32, R35, Y32, Y35, YG17, B29, BV08, 0, N1, N3, N5, 100

Cardstock Dimensions:

Box Base:   8" x 5-1/2"
Box Top:   3-1/8" x 5-5/8"
Envelopes:  5-3/4" square paper

So, let's begin!

Following the template below, score your box base at the noted marks using your Scor-Pal scoring board and Scor-Tool.

Fold along all the score lines and snip along the small center scores.

Cut the center sections into points as shown and add Scor-tape to close the sides.

You can set this aside once you've embellished as you desire.

Score the cardstock for the box top as show in the template below using your Scor-Pal scoring board and Scor-Tool.

Cut along the small score marks (on the ends only) to be able to close the top.  You do not need to cut to a point as we did with the box base.  Add Scor-tape to close.

I created four small cards (3" x 3") to go in my mini box.  Of course, if you create cards, you'd love to also have mini envelopes to accompany them, right?

Using your Scor-Envi, score as directed on the tool for the 3" x 3" envelope.  This begins with a 5-3/4" square piece of paper with scores at 4-1/4" and 7-3/4" along both sides.

Snip and remove the corners.  Use Scor-tape to close your envelope.

Complete your project with patterned paper, stamped images and fun colors.  I just love the retro feel to the images!
