SELF CLOSING BOX




I used some older Designer Series Paper for this box.  The colors are Crushed Curry, Calypso Coral & Coastal Cabana (discontinued)

8 1/2" x 6" card stock
Score at 4" & 8"


Turn the cs & score at 1" & 5"
See the picture below.



Turn the cs to the original way.
Score at 2" & 6" down to the score line.


Now place your cs on a piece of foam.  Take a ruler & use you scoring tool to score diagonally from the 2" line to the left edge & score line.  Now go from the 2" score line to right to the corner of the score marks.  Repeat this with the 6" score line.  You are making triangles. You can see this in the picture below.


Cut the 2, 4 & 6" score lines down to the score line.  Trim off the 2 corners--This will be the flap to close the box.


Carefully fold on all the fold lines.

Use a strong tape (Tear & Tape is good).  Put the tape on the flap & fold the box over & it will be sealed.


2) 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" Designer Series Paper
Mark the center & cut from the mark down to the corner.  Do this to both sides.

While the box is still flat apply the dsp to the box.  You will use all 6 pieces.


Use the Decorative Dots embossing fold for the top of the box. 
Tie a small bow & put on the top with a glue dot.



Bunny Back
1" circle punch is body--white cs
3/4" circle punch is head--white cs
Petite Petals flower punch is ears--white cs You will be using 2 petals.
Tree Builder punch-the small flower is the tail--pink cs

Sponge all the edges with a light pink ink.
Use glue dots to put the bunny together.


Use the smallest Oval Framelit for the background for the bunny.

Use glue dots to put the bunny on the background oval & mount on the front of the box.

Now you can use a strong tape or glue to close the bottom of the box.

I hope you liked this box.  I thought it would be great for Easter candy.  A gift card would also fit inside nicely.  Change the color & DSP, and it would be great for any occasion.

Happy Stampin
