This little box would be great for a female or male gift – it’s based on Sam Donald’s box (Pootles) but I’ve tweaked the sizes slightly to fit four Ferrero Rocher chocolates in. Cut a piece of cardstock to measure 10 1/2″ x 6″. With the long side at the top of your Simply Scored board, score at 1 1/2″, 4 1/2″, 6″ and 9″. With the short side at the top, score at 1 1/2″ and 4 1/2″. Cut and remove sections as shown.
Next cut four pieces of DSP measuring 1 1/4″ x 2 3/4″ and one measuring 2 3/4″ x 2 3/4″. Note that if you are using a paper which has a ‘directional’ pattern, make sure you cut it so the long side of your pieces are the top and bottom of the pattern, otherwise you will end up with sideways flowers! Attach your DSP to flaps A, B, C & D and the square piece to the top. Fold and burnish all your score lines, then attach the sticky strip where shown. To make up the box, attach flaps 2 & 5 to side E, then flaps 4 & 6 to side G. This forms the bottom of your box. Next attach flap 1 to side A and flap 3 to side C to form the flip down lid. Finish decorating as required. For my box I used Cherry Cobler A4 Card Stock from the Regals Collection with DSP from the Stacked With Love DSP Paper Stack. The heart was ‘fussy cut’ from one of the sheets and attached with a Stampin’ Dimensional and finished with a large Basic Rhinestone Jewel Accent. The ribbon is from retired stock, however there are a number of wide Cherry Cobbler ribbons here.
The knotted ribbon acts as a belly band, so you can simply slide the ribbon off to open the box and reveal your chocolates. I hope you enjoy giving this box a go – please show us your creations on my Facebook Page 😃
