One of a Kind Box Tutorial

I came across the cutest little box the other day while searching online and I just had to make one. Since I was making it I thought I'd share my step-by-step tutorial to creating it!
I first saw the box posted on Splitcoaststampers by "flowerbugnd1" and she used the template from Julie Buhler on her blog.

Step1: Cut Pretty in Pink cardstock to 7" x8"

 

 

 

 

Step2:
Score 8 in side at 3" and 5"
Score 7" side 1 1/4" from each end.

 

 

 

 

Step 3: Cut ends as in picture.

 

 

 

 

Step 4: Stamp randomn images in Pretty in Pink ink. I used the small stamp from One of a Kind.

 

 

 

 

 

Step 5: Add Sticky Strip or a strong adhesive.

Tip: If you find it hard to take sticky strip apart, use the tips of your scissors to pull apart.

 

 

Step 6: Fold your box.

 

 

 

 

 

Create your "Faux Photo Corners":

Materials: 1 3/8" square punch, 1/4" square punch, Scissors, Close to Cocoa cs

 

 

 

 

Step 7: Punch a square using the 1/4" sq. punch

 

 

 

 

Step 8: Center your punched square in the window of the 1 3/8" square punch and punch.

 

 

Step 9: Use your scissors to cut the square in half from corner to corner.

 

 

 

 

Step 10: Stamp your corners using Chocolate Chip ink.

 

 

 

 

Step 11: Punch out a Round Tab.

 

 

 

Step 12: Punch a 1/4" circle

 

 

 

 

 

Step 13: Punch again using the 1 1/4 circle punch making sure to center.

 

 

 

Create your Lid:

 

Step 14: Cut Pretty in Pink to 3 5/8" x 6 1/8"

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 15: Score 3/4" from all edges.

 

 

 

 

Step 16: Cut up to the 3/4" edge on the long ends and fold in. Add Sticky strip on 4 ends.

 

 

 

 

Step  17: Use the 1/8" circle punch to punch a hole for your ribbon.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 18: Add your pre-punched circles.

 

 

 

Step 19: Stamp your ribbon using Chocolate Chip Classic Ink

 

 

 

Step 20: Loop your ribbon through and form a double knot.

 

 

 

 

Step 21: Adhere your corners to your box. I added them to both sides.

 

 


 

 


 

 Step 22: Stamp your image to the middle of the round tab, punch a 1/16th circle through the front and back of your tab. Stick in your Pretty in Pink brad.

 

 

 

Step 23: Add sticky strip to front of your tab as shown and adhere the tab to the inside of the lid.
