Labels 17 box by Alice

Hi all! This is Alice. =) You may have seen a tutorial at Splitcoast Stampers about a box made with the top note die from Stampin' Up. I really liked the box, but I don't own the top note die. I decided to alter the box a little to match my Spellbinders Labels 17 die. Here is how I made the box:

First, you need a piece of cardstock that measures 9" x 6.5". Score at 1", 4", 5" and 8" on the longer side using a scoring tool.

Flip the paper 90 degrees and sore at 1" and 5 1/2" on the short side.

Pre-fold all the scored lines.

Then cut all the 1" scare marks on both long sides like such. They will be the glue tabs for your box, see photo below.

Use your choice of strong adhesive and apply them on the little glue tabs.

Then adhere them to the inside of the longer side tabs.

For the lid.

And here you go. A pizza box! You can decorate it the any way you want from here. Since I altered the measurements to match the Labels 17 die, you can use your dies to decorate it. The box measures 3" x 4.5" x 1" by itself.

Here is my finished box:
I cut two pieces of cardstock using the largest die from the Labels 17 die set, stamped some pattern on them and trimmed about 1/4" off of one side on each piece for the spin of the box.

All I did was decorating it with the Willow with hot chocolate image and used a piece of twill ribbon as the closure. Now it's a perfect gift package for sending some hot chocolate (or tea) packs to a friend!

I am not very good at explaining everything, you can refer to this video tutorial for the assembly of the box. It's exactly the same way of assembling except for the size. =)

Hope you'll give this a try!

Thanks for stopping by!
