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"
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.
