Scor-Pal Expanding Box with Guest Designer Joann Jamieson

Hello again everyone, It's Joann here again and I am delighted to show you another fun little box to make. I got the idea from a candy box that I was given that had sides that opened up so you could almost fold the box flat. Well, I got out my trusty little craft knife and took it apart to see how it was put together : ) Box-Closed and here it is open Box-Open To make this fun little box follow these simple steps: Step 1 Score at 2 ¼, 4 ¼, 7 ¾, 9 ¾ , and 11 ¾ Step-1 Step 2 Flip to the other edge and score at 2 ¾, 4 ¾, 7 ¼, and 9 ¼ Step-2 Step 3 Trim off the extra pieces to leave the final shape as shown Step-3 Step 4 To round the flaps so the box will open and close I simply took an oval die and traced the shape and fussy cut the flap. Step-4 Step 5 To make the flaps on the top of the box a little nicer I took my Spellbinders die and placed the flap through as shown and then run this part through your machine far enough to cut the die. Step-5 Step 6 Finish the inside by adding DP before you assemble the box Step-6 Step 7 I distressed the edges of the outside of the box before decorating with more pretty DP Step-7 Here's a list of the products I used for this project: Cheery Lynn Designs XM-7 - Oval Classic Spellbinders - Labels Eighteen Spellbinders - Decorative Labels Twenty-Seven Spellbinders - Petite Ovales Large JustRite - Spring Rose Medallions JustRtie JB-10025 - Nested Oval Medallion Labels Stampabilities - CR1069 My Mind's Eye Collectable Paper AC Cardstock Thanks so much for visiting my blog and I hope you can come back and visit again soon! joann sig
