Pinspired - Scor-Pal

Good morning!

I'm here today with a Pinspired project for the Scor-Pal blog. The Scor-Pal Design Team each take a month, and we find a project on Pinterest that inspires us to create!

This month, I'm your hostess, and I have been 'Pinspired' by this project by Sandra Ronald.

Gift Box for Speciality Teabags | Arty Paper Crafters

I made a whole lot of these for some special ladies at church!

Here are my boxes:

And here is how these were made!
(Be sure to check out Sandra's video tutorial!)

Cut your card stock to 9" x 6 1/4"

Score on the short side at 1/2", 1 3/4", 5"
I used my Scor-Pal Eighths (which I dearly love) to score my boxes.
(The dotted lines were drawn on, so you could see the scored lines)

Score the long side at 3", 4 1/4", 7 1/4" and 8 1/2"

Burnish all score lines

Cut as shown below.  The boxes with X's will be cut out entirely.
Round the corners on what will be your 'top flap'.

When it's cut out, it will look like this. Add some adhesive to your skinny tab on the side.
Of course, I used Scor-Tape 1/4" for this!

Flip your card stock over, and apply adhesive as shown.

Fold and create your box as shown.

OOPS! You should do this step BEFORE adhering box together!

Using a small circle punch, create a little half circle, to allow you to open
the box with your thumb or finger.  Mine was a wee bit tricky to do, as
I did it after the box was assembled... 

Finish your box, and decorate as desired!

Remember, your box won't have all of the creative pencil marks on it - I just used them so you could better see the scoring lines.

That's it!  I made all of these boxes in one evening, and you can too!
Thanks to Sandra for some great 'Pinspiration'!

I hope you'll give this box a try. Don't forget, you still have time to enter the October challenge at Scor-Pal - 'More than one fold, with a Fall/Halloween/Harvest Theme!

Thanks for stopping by,

Patti J.

Hello queen of box making - so good to see you creating "again" in your new craft room. I like the one with the peanut butter cups but I know the church ladies will love the tea boxes. Great tutorial.
