Pinspired with Lois!

The Scor-Pal is the perfect tool for making a box -- one-sheet or otherwise.  My pinspired project for today was inspired by this One-Sheet Box made by Einet Kessler:

This is my version of Einet's box:

Her instructions were very clear, and I had no trouble following them:

To start, score a piece of double-sided 12" x 12" cardstock at 3" and 9".  Turn the sheet a quarter of a turn, and score at 3", 5 1/2", 8 1/2" and 11".

With the four score lines horizontal, cut out the top left and right corners -- down to the second score line, as shown (the sections with the Xs should be removed).

Cut along the four outer corner squares from the edge to the score lines, to create the four tabs.  Fold at the score lines.  It might be a good idea to fold on all the score lines to get crisp edges.

Adhere Scor-Tape to the center panels, as shown in the photo, and fold in the side tabs.

Remove the paper from the tape, and adhere the center panels to the folded in flaps.

At this point, your box is completed.  You may decorate it any way you wish.  I just added some candy to the inside, folded over the lid, and added a wide wired ribbon.

You could make this cute little box fit any occasion, simply by changing the cardstock.  Here's a Halloween version . . .

. . . and a Christmas version.

You could probably make one in about 15 minutes.  I hope you give it a try!
