Paper cutter, scoring board, scissors, super sticky tape.
My directions called for a piece of card stock, 9" by 5". Maybe I am just not big on following directions, but that seemed a.) wasteful of paper and b.)involving too much math and measurements using fractions.
I used a piece of card stock that was 8.5 inches by 5 inches.
I scored at 2", 4", 6" and 8"--much less margin for error. Then score a lengthwise perpendicular line at 2.5". I did not score through the last line but it does not matter if you do.
Cut off half of the 1/2" section, then cut on just the top halves of the vertical lines. Fold and crease the in tact scores. Attach the 1/2" tab to the inside of the
right hand section with double sided sticky tape. You end up with an open box:
Cut a 2.5" square of card stock. Score a .25" line on either side, then cut in half on the horizontal.
If your paper is plain, as shown here, you can cut decorative pieces.
In the process of being taped on.
This time, I used purchased embellishments and 49 strand jewelry wire to make the pop out decorations.
I made the paper flowers to embellish this one.
The inside, too.
Will you try it?
