Scor-Pal Mid Month Tutorial

It's already mid-June!  Where did this month go?

It's my turn to share a mid-month tutorial with you.
I had seen something like this done on Pinterest with jelly jars, and thought it would be fun to adapt measurements for some pretty little candles that I found at Wal-Mart for about $1 each.

Let's get started on this quick and easy gift idea!

Gather up your Scor-Pal, scissors, and Scor-Tape.

Cut 3 pieces of cardstock. I used a glitter pink because I liked the sparkle!
Cut 2 pieces at: 10.25" x 2.75"
Cut one piece at: 8.25" x 10.5" - Score the long side at 2.75" and 7.75".
Score the short side at 2.75" and 5.5".

Cut in to the fold lines on both of the long sides, and snip the two outer 'tabs' just a bit for easy alignment.

Turn your cardstock over, and apply Scor-Tape to the tabs.

Remove tape liner - fold and adhere tabs to inside to create box.

Your two smaller pieces will look like this after they are scored.

 Flip them over, and apply tape.

Carefully adhere the two pieces, wrong sides together ONLY ON THE SECTIONS WITHOUT SCORE LINES, and using a punch or die of your choice, create a 'handle' opening.
Now, fold your two remaining flaps (each with two score lines) out to create a T.
Remove tape liner, and gently position the bottom of the T into the bottom of the box.
Remove the tape liner from the sides of the T and adhere them to the sides of the box.

Here is what your finished box looks like.

Add your candles, decorate your box as desired, and...

Voila!  A fun little gift package for someone special!

Thanks for stopping by today!
