I made this box to hold a gift for my S-I-L's birthday. Jen said (jokingly) he wanted a Speedo for their upcoming Cruz. So my DH and I set out to find him one. By the time we got home I knew just how I would package it and got to work making this masculine (cute) gift box and tag with just the right message (Lol). The box when finished is a petite 4-1/4" x 4-1/4" x 2-1/4". Just perfect for a small gift or gift card.
|To make this box start with a 11-1/2"x11-1/2" piece of card stock or paper.|
|Using the Simply Scored and Diagonal Scoring Plate, score all four sides at 2-3/4", 5-3/4" and 8-3/4".|
|Using a bone folder crease all score lines.|
|Fold opposite corners on creases so that the corners touch in the center.|
|Fold sides up vertically.|
|Tucking in the sides on the end, fold up end of box.|
|Fold flap over side towards center.|
|Folding in flap and matching corner with center of box.|
|Repeat with remaining side and your box base is complete. |
For the lid start with a 10"x10" piece of card stock or paper and score at 3", 5" and 7".
Assemble the same way as the box base.
|No adhesive required!|
|I made the tag using scraps of coordinating card stock, cutting small rectangles to match |
the pattern on the lid. I sponged Soft Suede ink on the squares and popped them up
|I was a hit at the party! My S-I-L even threatened to wear the Speedo.|
