Tutorial Tuesday - Small File Box and Gift Box

Welcome to Sunflowers and Dragonflies Tutorial Tuesday. Today's box was inspired by Claudia Rosa. What a talented lady she is. This little box is perfect for a small filing box, such as birthday reminders; and even gift boxes. Possibilities are endless.


Scor-Pal or score blade
8 1/2" cardstock
designer paper
scotch tape
double sided tape (optional)
ribbon (for note cards inside the box)

With your paper horizontal score at 2", 5 1/2" and 7 1/2"

With your paper vertical, score at 1 1/2", 3 1/2", 7"

Clip score lines from outside left edge to the 1 1/2" score line. Clip score lines from outside right edge to the 3 1/2" score line.

With the 1 1/2" score line on the left, cut the right side pieces off. Your paper will look like this.

Bend box in half. The bottom flaps on all three panels will be folded up into the box, and the left panel will fold over to the right.

If you look very closely you will see that the adjoining side edges is taped with scotch tape, as is the bottom. Your piece is now ready to decorate.

Stamps: All Night Media
Paper: SU Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, White, Black
Watercoloured with Tombow markers
White paper was run through the Cuttlebug
Brads added to top
