Brrr....Welcome to December! It's my turn to be challenge hostess on the Scor-Pal blog, so I'm here today to share my project. The new challenge for December is 'Anything Goes Christmas', and must include more than one fold.
I was shopping last week and found these Lindt candies for $1 each.
I decided our senior group at church 'needed' one, so today's project was to create a box to hold them. These candies measure about 7" x 3/4", so it took a bit of measuring, and the box and lid are pretty snug!
Here's what I made:
Here's how I did it...
You will also need need cardstock for your box, scissors, a circle or half circle punch, and a centering ruler is optional.
Cut your base 9" x 2.5"
Score all four sides at 3/4"
Cut your lid 8.5" x 2"
Score all four sides at 1/2"
Burnish all of your score lines. I find the key to a good box is nicely burnished fold lines!
Using your scissors, snip in to the fold line on all four tabs.
Do this step for both box base, and lid
Angle cut your tabs just a wee bit for a nice, neat fit.
Using your punch, find your lid center, and punch a 'finger' opening.
Flip your pieces over and apply your tape.
I used 1/4" on the lid, and 1/2" on the box.
Assemble box and lid.
Insert candy in box and add lid.
Decorate as desired - you're done!
On my little tab, the coloring is done with Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens - did you know that you can find these beautiful glittery pens at Scor-Pal? And for a while, if you buy 2 or more packs of Spectrum Noir items, you'll get a free package of cardstock!!! Check out the Accessory tab and see what's available - you will be so happy you did!
If you'll check my blog on Dec. 15th, you will get to see all 12 boxes finished!
Thanks for looking!
We hope to see your Christmas creations in our More Than One Fold, 'Anything Goes Christmas' Scor-Pal challenge!
We also have a ton of inspiration in the Projects section of the Scor-Pal website and also on our Pinterest Board to help you get creative!
Happy December everyone!
