Thinking inside the box.

Sometimes thinking inside the box is what it takes.  Here is a box created from one 8 inch square piece of designer series paper and the steps to create it.  You can also use cardstock or specialty paper.

  1.  Take the envelope punch board and punch and score at the 2 inch mark on all 4 sides.
  2. When you have punched all 4 sides then flip the paper over.
  3. Punch and score again at the 2 inch mark.
  4. Take the corner tabs and score from end to end.
  5. Fold and burnish all score lines.
  6. Tuck the corners by folding in half and gluing together.
  7. If you want, glue the inner flaps to the inside of the box.
  8. Fill with desired contents.
  9. Fold top flaps to close.
  10. Use a dimensional, glue dot, velcro, and/or ribbon to secure.
  11. Enjoy!
