Tutorial Thursday - Gift Box



Hello everyone! Welcome to Tutorial Thursday!

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

Today's tutorial is:  GIFT BOX

Here's an easy to create gift box using one sheet of paper that you can customize with any of your favourite La-La Land Crafts stamps and dies.

Grassy Vine Die

Duck - YR24,YR31,E31,E50,YR09,YR16,YR12
Grass/Vines - YG23,YG01,YG0000


Card Stock cut to 8 1/4" x 11 1/2"
Score Lines - 2 3/4", 5 1/2", 8 1/4", 11"
2 3/4", 5 1/2"

~ now for the tutorial you have been waiting for ~ 

Start by cutting a 12" x 12" sheet of card stock to 8 1/4" x 11 1/2".  Score along the 11 1/2" side at 2 3/4", 5 1/2", 8 1/4", 11"
Score on the 8 1/4" side at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2"

Cut both ends off along the score lines on the 1/2" side leaving the center section.

Cut along both sides the score lines to the inside score line.  Each side will have 4 flaps once cut.

With the 1/2" section facing left along the top cut triangles from the second and fourth panel. 

 Start to fold the panels in on the opposite side of the triangles.  Starting with the first panel beside the 1/2" section fold in, add glue to the next panel and fold in to the inside of the first panel, continue till all the panels along the side are glued and folded in, always gluing to the inside of the panel before not the outside. 

Once the panels are glued you will need to angle the corners on the 1/2" piece on both sides, add glue and tuck inside.  

I reshaped my triangles to skinnier triangles.   It's up to you the shape you would like them finished at.  Once your shape is finished use a hole punch for a place to tie your ribbon.  You can leave the side square panels to close the box, you can also cut them off or glue and fold inside.  I left mine attached but glued in and used tissue paper so it was more of basket when finished.

Colour and die cut leaves, vines and glue all around the box.

Colour and die cut flowers and other elements and attach to box.  Finish with a ribbon.

We hope that you are inspired to try out your own creation with the amazing stamps and dies from La-La Land Crafts!
