May Arts and Scor-Pal with Lori Williams

Today I'm sharing a great box with you that I created for Cheery Lynn and the Scor-Pal / May Arts Ribbon hop.  I love the way the ribbon coordinates with the poppies and the paper collection, it's just perfect.  

Here is a tutorial for the box so you can make one for yourself. 

Step 1: Cut two 9 inch card stock squares, cut one 5 1/8" square card stock. Cut four 2 7/8" square designer paper, cut 8 2 3/4 square designer papers for interior.  I used KaiserCraft's Remember Me Collection.  

Step 2: Score one of your 9 inch squares at 3" and 6 ", turn your paper 90 degrees and score again at 3 " and 9". This will create a grid. You'll want to do this on both of your 9 inch card stock squares using your Scor-Pal

Step 3: Score each of your corner squares diagonally and fold. Fold inward as this is going to help create your box. TIP: I find using the 6" mark on my S
cor-pal makes this easy as there is a marking at the bottom of your Scor-pal that will help ensure you have it lined up correctly. 

Step 4: Using your Scor-Pal
 tape apply your outside squares ( 2 7/8" ) to the base box.

Step 5: Cut four of your 2 3/4 squares in half and tape to inside of your explosion box along the ridges.

Step 6: On your second 9 inch square cardstock cut the outer corner squares off as shown above. Fold and crease.

Step 7: Tape your remaining square card stock pieces to the just cut cross/9 inch piece. You can also decorate the base center with designer card too.

Step 8: Score your 5 1/8" square at 1 inch on all sides. Cut a slit in where all the black marks are shown above. Fold and crease.

Step 9: Tape your flaps to the inside of the box top creating your top. Now the really fun part decorate as desired.

I created the lovely poppies using my Cheery Lynn Dies.  Here is a complete list of dies used on this box.
