I know many of you asked for this tutorial a while back when I posted the box I had made and so finally, here it is! Many apologies for the delay but I guess better late than never! I hope you are able to follow it - if you have any questions, please feel free to message me.
1. Start with a sheet of cardstock measuring 8x12" and score at 2", 2", 4", 2" & 2" along the length of the paper. Turn the paper and score at 2" from the left and 2" from the right along the width.
2. Cut out a 2" square in each of the 4 corners.
3. Hand score and fold on the dotted lines.
4. On the end flaps, fold in each end to form 2 small triangles, as shown. Glue down.
5. Fold each corner to form an arrow like shown in the photo. Glue down to hold.
6. Tuck each of the 4 flaps behind the triangle fold and glue to hold down.
7. Fold in the middle score lines and as you do this, the box will naturally fold down and the two triangle flaps will meet in the middle.
8. Cut a 9" length of ribbon and wrap it around the flat envelope box. Be sure to leave a little bit of room to manouever the ribbon on and off. Punch out a decorative piece of cardstock, decorate and finish.
My cardmaking session with the girl guides last night was a blast - some incredibly talented young ladies out there. I hope my passion for cardmaking has ignited a desire in these young women to pursue or continue their love of crafting! Thanks for stopping by today and please leave me a comment if you enjoyed this tutorial. I hope to get some challenges done a little later.
