Scor-Pal and Clearsnap with Tya Smith

Hi there! Tya here with my take on the swap that we got to participate in with Clearsnap. I have always loved the rich, vibrant inks and mists that Clearsnap has so I was very happy to be able to use some of their amazing products on my project. Here is what I did:
This is my take on a 2-4-6-8 box. It is the same general technique, but I wanted a taller and wider box,so I changed the dimensions up a little bit to make this tall, open topped box that I used to give a gift of some yummy Bath and Body Works Body Spray. The box fit perfect. I also love using my stamps to make my own customized tissue paper, so I used a flower stamp and the beautiful Mixed Media Ink Chox to make the fun flowered tissue paper. Here is what I used and how to make one of your own:

9x12 inch white cardstock
(4) 2 1/4 x 6 1/4 pattern paper (My Minds Eye Kate&Co.)
cut out sheet of journaling spots and card sentiments and stickers from Kate and Co. line as well for tag
(2) 1 1/2 x 12 inch teal cardstock
border punch
pop dots
Stamp by Judikins - Mod Mum
1 sheet of white tissue paper
Various embellishments, bakers twine, ribbon, pin and jewels

Step 1- On the 9 inch side of the 9x12 inch white cardstock, score the paper at 2 inches.
 Step 2 - Score on the 12 inch side of the cardstock at 2 1/2, 5 , 7 1/2, and 10 inches. Trim away the bottom right section as shown.
 Step 3- Snip the bottom sections up to the bottom scored line as shown:
 Step 4- Fold all the scored lines:
 Step 5- Add Scor Tape to the far right panel and to 3 of the bottom panels as shown:
 Step 6- Glue the box together:
 Step 7- Decorate the outside panels of the box using the (4) 2 1/4 x 6 1/4 pattern papers. Take the (2) 1/12 x 12 inch teal cardstock strips and punch a border using a border punch. Score these papers at 2 1/2, 5, 7 1/2 and 10 inches just like the panels for the box. Add these to the top and bottom edges of the box.
 To make the tag, use one of the journaling spots , stickers and various embellishments. Add the tag to the front of the box using pop dots.
 To make the tissue paper, I simply stamped a flower stamp with the Chox and then used the Smooch Spritz as well for some added fun :)

Thank you for letting me share my project with you and thanks to Clearsnap for designing such fun products for us to use! It was a lot of fun!

Thank you for sharing how to make this box. It is very pretty. I was not sure what to do for these type of boxes. Now I do. I am learning so much from here. I have the score buddy and love it, but it is a little small. I sure need the Score Pal.Thanks again for sharing this box. Edwina Brown
