Sheena's A Little Bit Festive Release

Happy Saturday! Ready for the holidays?? Kidding, but I do have a cute and really easy to make holiday box for something cute like a gift card or small candies, a bakery cookie or whatever else you can fit inside! I love to give gift cards in something other than an envelope. Makes it more exciting to open.

I'll show you how I made this box, too!

1. Choose a patterned paper (and be sure if you choose something with wording, it's the correct way before cutting and scoring...not like I did this or anything)
2. Cut your patterned paper to 6-1/2" wide by 12" tall.
3. Score at 1" on both sides on the longer side.
4. Score at 1", 5-1/2", 6-1/2" and 11" on the shorter side.
5. Cut your slits as shown in the photo and then cut away the 2 corner sections completely (that will end up being the TOP of the box).
6. Flip your paper over and apply the adhesive* on the 4 flaps.
7. Assemble your box.
8. Decorate away!!!! That's it!

I then colored the top image from the new Sheena's A Little Bit Festive Release-Christmas Cocoa which is being released to the US Tuesday, June 18th! These are AMAZING sets that will be sold for $12.95 per set OR 3 for $30. Must snag these. I'm tellin' ya. They're fab...just wait and see...

I colored in the image of the cocoa and cookies with my Spectrum Noir markers, cut around the image and adhered with pop dots to the top of my box.

*ADHESIVE NOTE: I used the Crafter's Companion Extra Strong Permanent Tape Runner. These are SUPER sticky and they're great for projects like these where you don't want to chance it coming apart for your recipient.
