TNT Thursday

I thought for today's tutorial we would put together a little gift box.

This particular one is based on a "pizza" box. The lid fits over the bottom section of the box, but is still part of the main box. 

Let's get started

You will need to cut your paper for the box at 5 1/2" x 8".
I used solid SU Card Stock because it is sturdier.

The CS is scored at landscape position at
1", 3 1/2", 4 1/2", 7"

Horizontal position at
1", 4 1/2"

After you have scored  the CS, clip the tabs as shown in the picture below. The left hand side is the box and the right side is the lid.

Fold all sections on their scored lines using your bone folder.

At the the corners of the tabs, I found that taking a small triangle piece from each corner helps the box corners fit tight.


Next put some type of sticky tape or liquid glue on
 the inside connecting pieces.



The completed box

Cut 2 pieces of CS at 2 3/4" x 4"
2 pieces of DSP 2 1/2" X 4"

Take the CS and using the edgelit and the Big Shot, cut close to 
the edge as the below picture shows.

Layer the remaining pieces to the CS and round the 
corners with a corner rounder.

These pieces are then adhered to the top and bottom of the completed box lining up the straight edge to the back of the box top and bottom. 

I stamped and cut the image with the new Chalk Talk stamp and edgelits.

 Cut a 18"-20" piece of ribbon and wrap around the box and tie in a bow. Cut the ends.
To add a little more fluff to the bow, I put a small piece of ribbon through the hole
 of the tag and tied it a simple bow, then tied it around the knot of the first.
