One Sheet Wonder Treat Box

Hello Everyone!!!  My name is Erin and I have a fun little project for you today!!  I first found the directions for a one sheet wonder box on Splitcoast Stampers.  After making quite a few boxes, I found a few little changes to make the project even easier!!!  The box itself requires NO cutting, NO adhesive and just 4 score lines!!!
So follow me through the tutorial and you'll be on your way!!  This is my first tutorial EVER so I hope it makes sense!!
Items you'll need.......
one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock for the base
score-pal or other scoring tool
Hole punch
Eyelet setter
Papers, images and sentiment to decorate box
Embellishments to finish box
Jumbo eyelets and ribbon to close box.

Step 1:  Score your cardstock on the short side at 2 1/2" and 6".

Step 2: Score your cardstock on the long side  at 4 1/2" and 6 1/2".

Step 3: Fold along creases a few times.

Step 4: Fold the small edge of the horizontal crease up to the vertical crease.  It will make a diagonal line in the cardstock.

Step 5: Repeat on all sides of the card stock.

Step 6: Create the box by following the score lines, then release box.

Step 7: Decorate the front of the box as desired.  Be sure to leave room for the jumbo eyelet in the top center.

Step 8: Re-create box and hold upper edges together.

Step 9: Using your hole punch, punch through ALL layers of card stock.

Step 10: Add jumbo eyelets to the front and the back of the box.

Step 11:  Tie box closed using ribbon.

Step 12:  Finish box with any additional embellishments.

Then just fill and enjoy!!!!!

I used A little bit of magic might help which is currently on sale at the Whiff of Joy store.    

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial!  Have a wonderful day.
