Betsy's Blossoms Box/Bag

My plan for today was to share with you some wedding cards I created this week end.  I attended not one but two weddings and created five cards! Problem is I completely forgot to take pictures.

So instead, I would like to share this cute box/bag.  It coordinates with the card in my last post for the Hopper's blog hop.  It's a 2, 4, 6, 8 box.  Very easy to make.  You can create a seven inch box or cut it down to any height you would like.  You can close both ends like the bottom on this one or choose to do different closures on the top, or even leave it open making it a taller box.

Pin It
I placed an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of card stock on the Simply Scored Scoring Tool with the 8 1/2  inches running across the top.  Scored at 2", 4", 6", and 8" - hence the name of the box. :)  Then I turned the card stock 90 degrees and scored at 2" on each side.

On the bottom I cut each of the four score lines up to the two inch mark and cut out the small 2" x 1/2" piece.  On the top I cut off all the tabs except for one of the 2" x 2" tabs.  This one is the flap that closes the box. 

Use sticky tape on the long tab to make the box.  On the bottom fold all four pieces in and secure with sticky tape.  On the top I folded the one tab over and secured with a brad. The Designer Printed Brads in the In Colors would be a perfect choice.

I used the Scallop Trim Border Punch on the flap and decorated the rest of the box to match yesterday's card.  The stamp set is the Betsy's Blossom set.  The colors are Lucky Limeade, Daffodil Delight, and Rose Red.  The sentiment is from the Tea Shoppe Stamp Set.

The card and gift box make a perfect pair the next time you are giving a gift.  What I like about making my own boxes and bags is that I never have to run out to the store.
