One sheet wonder box ..easy peasy !



So I have decided to bite the bullet and learn how to make boxes. As I go I'm afraid you are coming with me ha ha ha as I learn I will show you. This is probably the easiest box in the whole world to create. Its also quite large so very useful for lots of things. I saw the box a while back on pinterest and it was called a cookie box ..to hold cookies. So it is quite large and would fir cup cakes in too.

So all you need is one sheet of 12 x 12" card stock, I did layer mine with DSP all measurements are below. I helped it stay closed with a small length of ribbon and attached a simple sentiment. If your learning to make boxes this is a good starting point as it was for me. 

As your reading my blog today I am either IN or on my WAY TO ...Amsterdam for the Stampin' Up! on stage event ...Im sooooo excited and a little freaked out as I have never traveled abroad without at least one child in tow ... hope I don't get lost ..or KIDNAPPED !!! you will have to rescue me if I do ha ha ha.... In the mean time get comfy click the link and watch my Youtube tutorial on the box and then maybe give it a try .. Happy stamping x Amanda
