La-La Land Crafts 14 Days of Christmas - Day 13

Hello everyone! Welcome to DAY 13 of the annual La - La Land Crafts 14 Days of Christmas! 

Sandra here with you today to share a tutorial with you!

Today's tutorial is:  STAR FOLDED GIFT BOX
I want to show you a gorgeous star folded gift box you can perfectly use for wrapping up some of your Christmas gifts

Snowman - BG0000, 10, 70

White cardstock:
(2) 8 1/4" x 5 3/4"
Score on 5 3/4 side at 2 1/2 and 5
Score on 8 1/4 side at 2, 4, 6, and 8 
see direction below for other scoring 
(2) 2 1/4 circles
scraps for dies

Home For Christmas Paper Pack:
(8) 2 1/4 " x 1 3/4"  - Red ginger bread pattern
(8) 2 1/4 " x 1 3/4" Red snowflake patter
~ now for the tutorial you have been waiting for ~ 

This is a sketch you can use as an overview

Score on the long side at 2" / 4" / 6" / 8"

Turn paper and score on the short side at 2 1/2" and 5"

Score a diagonal line as shown above

Score another diagonal line as shown

Score a straight line from the top of your cardstock to the point where the other 2 scored lines you did before cross

Cut the cardstock at the bottom and cut off the marked paper as shown in the pic

It should look like this

Fold all straight scored lines

Fold all diagonal scored lines

Fold the straight line above the 2 diagonal folds, it should look like a roof with an antenna

Do all the steps for the remaining 8 1/4" x 5 3/4" piece of cardstock again 
You´ll have 2 identical pieces of folded cardstock now
Glue the flaps of one piece of cardstock and stick it to the second piece of cardstock

After that it looks like this

Now it is time to add the design paper

Cut 8 pieces in 2 1/4 " x 1 3/4" and glue them to your box

Cut again 8 pieces in 2 1/4" x 1 3/4" from your Design Paper

Draw diagonal lines on the back of the paper pieces as shown in the pic 

Cut the paper
You'll get 4 pieces out of 1 
 You need 8 small triangles and 16 larger triangles 

Glue them to the box

Put glue to the remaining flap of your box and close it by putting one side above the other side

Your box will look like that

Top of the box

Bottom of your box

You need to punch holes in the top flaps of your box so you can pull some ribbon to close it through

Punch a hole in the middle of your flap as shown in the pic

I use my Crop - a - dile to punch all holes 


Now it is time to add a bottom (inside/outside) to your box.
Diecut 2 circles. 

Glue one to the bottom (outside) of your box

And the second to the bottom of the inside of your box

Pull ribbon of your choice through the punched holes, tighten the ribbon and close your box 

This is the tag I added to my box

 If you like add some embellishments or just a ribbon bow for decoration to your box and you`re done!
