Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop - Anything But a Card

Time for the Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop.  We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators around the world who participate each month to share projects we are working on. Our theme this month is "Anything But a Card".  I've created a fun box using the Stampin' Up! Country Bouquet Bundle.

My plan was to make 22 of these boxes to use to give decorated cookies (my new found hobby) to friends.  I've now decided to make tags instead for the cookie, but love how this box turned out and had to share!

Instructions - check the template below for scoring and cutting information

  1. Cut Mint Macaron cardstock 5 1/2" x 10".
  2. Score at 1" and 4 1/2" along 5 1/2" side.
  3. Score at 1", 4 1/2", 5 1/2" and 9" along 10" side
  4. Fold and burnish all score lines using Bone Folder
  5. Cut on scoreline from edge to 1" scoreline at 1" and 4 1/2" on 5 1/2" end.  Repeat on other end
  6. Cut on scoreline from edge to 1" scoreline at 4 1/2" and 5 1/2" on 10" side.  Repeat on other end
  7. Cut a small notch on both sides of cuts on the 10" sides to remove some of the bulk.
  8. Fold flaps inwards on top of box and adhere to the front edge.
  9. Repeat on bottom of box.
  10. Fold the box together.

  16. Wrap twine around palm of hand 2-3 times.  Remove and pinch together
