We talked about this month’s Paper Pumpkin Kit the other day (Saturday, I think) and I promised to show you how I used my kit…
The measurements for the box were on Pinterest, and then I watched several videos…and then just went for it. The first box got thrown away, but this one I like.
The most important thing is to get your measurements right and it almost puts itself together. So I’ve cut the box out of copy paper (because score marks on Basic Black are hard to see) and taken a photo after all the trimming is done…
- Here are the beginning measurements: Cut your cardstock 4″ x 11″.
- On the long side score at 1/2″, 1-3/4″, 4-1/4″, 5-1/2″.
- On the short side score at 1-1/4″ and 2-3/4″.
- Turn back to the long side and at the 8″ mark score to the horizontal score line, skip the center and score again from horizontal score line to edge of paper.
- Trim your end corners and score lines so that your cardstock looks like this…
- Punch a 1″ circle in the center of space after the 1/2″ score line. Cut away the two 1/2″ corners and two sides starting at the 8″ mark to the end of the piece.
- Place Tear Tape on first two long tabs.
- Burnish all score lines horizontal and vertical.
- Fold from the 1/2″ score line end up, tucking in all tabs leaving the Tear Tape tab for last. Remove paper and seal the sides.
- Your box is done!
- Here’s the dimensions for the sides, front and back of the box…
- Front and back cardstock 1-3/8″ x 2-3/8″, DSP 1-1/4″ x 2-1/2″
- Sides cardstock 1-1/8″ x1-3/8″, DSP 1″ x 1-1/4″
- The top of the box will fit into the Scalloped Tag Punch if you want to use ribbon at the top of the box.
- Treats were put inside the container and decorated as instructed in the Paper Pumpkin Kit.
I’m thinking my little trick or treaters will like this treat!
Here’s your “B-ism” for today…
nobody you know.
So get inky…Be HaPpY!
