I hope you are enjoying World Card Making Day Blog Hop today!! Wow! There are so many bloggers on the hop!
This is my 2nd post today. So make sure to scroll down to see my other post regarding the Wags 'n Whiskers Design Team.
I have a tutorial to share with you. But if you don't have time to check out the tutorial, just subscribe for email feeds or become a follower of my blog and come back later when you have more time.
In the mean time, here is my gift set...
I needed a thank you gift to give my sister-in-law for watching my dog while we were out of town. I wanted to give her a cute box to hold some dog treats for her own dogs. I think this is much nicer than having a store bought box sitting on your counter, right?!
The image on the box is actually the logo for my new stamp company Wags 'n Whiskers Rubber Stamps. This image will be released along with 8 other images on Friday, October 9th. We have a blog hop scheduled on the 9th with lots of prizes along the way. The stamps will be available in the US and Canada at my store Stamp and Create and they will be available in Europe and "the rest of the world" at my partner's store Bunny Zoe's Crafts.
Oh, the box is one that I created for this post, but haven't had a chance to create the tutorial I promised until now.
Onto the Tutorial...
~ 10 3/4" x 5 1/4" cardstock (for the bottom and 2 sides)
~ TWO 7 1/4" x 3 3/4" pieces of cardstock (for 2 sides)
~ 8 1/2" x 8 1/2" Cardstock (for the lid)
~ FOUR 2 1/2" x 5" Designer Paper (optional - to decorate the outside of the box - you can stamp on the box as well or leave it plain)
~ 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" Desiger Paper (optional - or background cardstock to decorate the top of the box)
~ Ribbon or other embellishments
2. Take the 7 1/4" x 3 3/4" pieces and score along 3 sides 1" from the sides...
3. Cut along the solid lines (see template)...
5. Attach strong adhesive (I used Score Tape), on the outside of the sides and along the bottom of the 7 1/4" x 3 3/4" pieces...
8. Take your 8 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece and score along all 4 sides at 1 1/2" in...
9. If you would like a decorative edge on the lid, go ahead and cut that now. Then cut along the solid lines (see template) and attach strong adhesive on the flaps...
10. Assemble the lid...
11. Decorate the box!
Make sure to stop by later this week as there will be more information shared about the Wags 'n Whiskers Design Team! And I hope you will come back on the 9th for our Release!!
