An Easter Box

By Melissa Davies

You will need:
y 12 x 12 cardstock y 2 pieces of DSP cut to 21cm long x 6cm deep y 2 pieces cardstock 2.5 cm x 6.3cm y 2 pieces of the same dsp as above cut 5.8cm long x 2cm wide y Grosgrain ribbon 45cm and two extra pieces to create bows approx 24cm each y Stamp set of your choice y Word window punch y Coordinating cardstock 10cm x 12.5 cm for the top note die y Top note die y Big shot machine y Snail y Sticky strip y Dimensional

Step 1 Using the template provided or the measurements provided also on the pdf attached cut out your cardstock using the template. You will need two cut outs of this template.

Step 2 Score and cut as per directions on template

Step 3 Adhere sticky strip as shown

Step 4 Take your first piece of cardstock and fold in the base of the box where the cut lines are, using the two parts that do not have sticky strip, then fold in the other two parts peeling off the sticky strip and attaching. This gives it a nice clean finish underneath, also take the sticky strip off the side tab and attach to the inside of the box. Your assembled box should look like this:

Step 5 Repeat step 4 with the other piece of cardstock

Step 6 Adhere sticky strip to the back of one of the boxes as shown then stick the two boxes together

Step 7 Using your two pieces of DSP that are cut to 20cm x 6 cm lay them down and on the side you are using attach sticky strip along the ends of one piece as shown

Step 8 Peel the sticky strip on end and attach to the other piece until you end up with one continuous strip

Step 9 I then add a small amount of sticky strip in the centre of each side of the box taking care not to go right to the edges as the DSP fits in the centre of the cardstock not fully to the edges. See picture below:

Step 10 Stick your DSP onto your box

Step 11 Adhere your 5.8cm x 2cm DSP to the 2.5 x 6.3 cm cardstock

Step 12 Attach those pieces in the middle of the two long sides of your box to cover the joins of the DSP Step 13 Tie your grosgrain around the box and then add your two bows

Step 14 Run your 10 cm x 12.5 cm cardstock through the big shot using your top note die, then from the top centre point to the bottom centre point score your top note cut out, this will fold over the top of the box. Step 15 Decorate as desired

Step 16 Adhere your top note diecut to the box using sticky strip

Add your eggs or whatever you intend to put in there, and you are done!

Well Done Melissa
