Happy New Year STAMPERS!!! Here’s to another great year of crafts, cards and fun little projects 🙂
Sorry this is a tad behind the You Tube post, but I wanted to get the video out to you and post the measurements as soon as I could. You will find all that info below.
Alright, to start out you will need a 12×12 sheet of your card stock of choice , this will still work with DSP, but it WILL be a little flimsier. If I were you, I would just add in some DSP pieces to spruce up the box you create!
Pick a side, and you will score at 1/2″ and 3 1/2″ on each side, it is easiest to use the Simply Scored scoring tool and also easier if you score one side, then flip and repeat. I say this because from time to time, the 12″ measurement is just the tiniest bit off or not square. If you score then flip and repeat, you will get a truer box. ( Meaning more exact in the edges and overall squareness).
You are going to now turn to the unscored side, ( either one) and score at 3″ 5 5/8″. 8 5/8″ and 11 3/8″.
Thats it, now just fold on you score lines, you can use to bone folder for your creases if you’d like, then we will begin to trim.
You are also going to want to use either Tombow liquid glue or Tear and Tape. You will really want to secure the sides so it will not come apart when your friend opens it.
You will cut up the score lines on all sides at all lines, meaning both sides.
Trim off the two side slim pieces.
Trim in the sides of the 2nd and 4th sides on both sides, and snip a bit off of the ends because they will not need to be full length.
Trim the sides of the 3rd piece a bit, but do not trim the end.
Add adhesive to the thin fold piece, and the 2nd and 4th flaps as shown.
Fold them in, then fold the flap with the thin strip down and you are done.
If you want to add DSP to the top, sides, and front and back, you will need to cut the pieces as follows.
Two pieces( front and back long sides) 2 7/8″ by 4 7/8″
One piece( top piece) at 2 1/2″ by 4 7/8″
Two pieces at (two side parts) 2 3/8″ by 2 5/8″
