Easy Peasy Box

Hey gals, I am soooo excited to share this adorable box with you. I learned to make this today from a friend of mine..........(hi Kim* waving*). She does not consider herself creative, but really enjoys crafty things......I might have her addicted before long, what do you think? She was shown how to make these boxes years ago and shared it with me today. The incredible thing about these boxes is that you only need one piece of tape to keep it together. Her and I are getting together on Friday to make cookies, truffles, fudge, and pretzel rods; these boxes will be perfect for giving away some of our goodies. Did I mention that I am off from work after Thursday until Jan. 4.....yeah! I made this one quick so I only added the snowflake with glitter, the sentiment with a button and twine, and the cute designer paper around the sides. I have added photos and instructions by each photo. If you need any further help, you can PM me from SCS, the link is here.

Take a 12 x 12 piece of card stock and fold in to meet in the center. (Picture above)

Fold up the sides to meet in the middle. (Picture above)

Showing the folded sides up on the other side. (picture above)

Cut up to the center fold on opposite sides as shown. (picture above)
Turn the folds in and pull at the center triangle and fold up over the cuts, it will hold together basically on it's own, you can add a piece of tape to both triangle tips once they are both in the center. (picture above)

Here it shows one side done, you can do the other side now. (picture above)

This is the completed bottom, you do the same for the top, placing the top over the bottom for your completed box........decorate the box to suit your needs. I would luv to see your completed box, link it back here so I can see......enjoy!
