Welcome to the second day of the May Arts Ribbon and Scor Pal Blog Hop. You should have arrived here from Jen's Blog. I've got a great tutorial/project to share with you today and once you've enjoyed you can hop to Christina's Blog and see what she's created. Remember there are great prizes so be sure to leave comments and have fun and you might just win.
Today I'm sharing a great box with you that I created for Cheery Lynn and the Scor-Pal / May Arts Ribbon hop. I love the way the ribbon coordinates with the poppies and the paper collection, it's just perfect.
Here is a tutorial for the box so you can make one for yourself.
Step 1: Cut two 9 inch card stock squares, cut one 5 1/8" square card stock. Cut four 2 7/8" square designer paper, cut 8 2 3/4 square designer papers for interior. I used KaiserCraft's Remember Me Collection.
Step 2: Score one of your 9 inch squares at 3" and 6 ", turn your paper 90 degrees and score again at 3 " and 9". This will create a grid. You'll want to do this on both of your 9 inch card stock squares using your Scor-Pal.
Step 3: Score each of your corner squares diagonally and fold. Fold inward as this is going to help create your box. TIP: I find using the 6" mark on my Scor-pal makes this easy as there is a marking at the bottom of your Scor-pal that will help ensure you have it lined up correctly.
Step 5: Cut four of your 2 3/4 squares in half and tape to inside of your explosion box along the ridges.
Step 6: On your second 9 inch square cardstock cut the outer corner squares off as shown above. Fold and crease.
Step 7: Tape your remaining square card stock pieces to the just cut cross/9 inch piece. You can also decorate the base center with designer card too.
Step 8: Score your 5 1/8" square at 1 inch on all sides. Cut a slit in where all the black marks are shown above. Fold and crease.
Step 9: Tape your flaps to the inside of the box top creating your top. Now the really fun part decorate as desired.
I created the lovely poppies using my Cheery Lynn Dies. Here is a complete list of dies used on this box.
