Thursday Blog Project from Susan R - little Easter Gift Box

Hi Susan R here
Today I am showing you my Thursday Project for LC Designs

I am spotlighting

Here is my project - a little Easter gift box


This can be made with just one piece of A4 card, a piece of ribbon, 2 irresistible images, two buttons and your favourite stamp and ink pad...

With the card longest side along your scoreboard,
 score the sheet of card at 2, 5, 7 and 10 inches.
Turn the card and score at 1, 3 and 7 inches.
The ares with scribble on will be discarded.

Take your favourite stamp and ink pad - I used 'Almost Amethyst' and a little stamp from one of my LC Designs Sets - and stamp randomly over the card.

Remove the excess pieces of card, cut the slits along the bottom, use a corner rounder on the top flap, cut small triangles of the edge flap and you should end up with this:

Assemble the box , glueing together the sides and the bottom. for the bottom, first fold in the small flaps, then the large ones. Punch two holes in the top flap, mark where they match the box with a pencil and make holes in the box side:

Place the images on front and back - and I added butterfly buttons.
Thread a ribbon through the holes and tie...

Fill it up with some treats for Easter!!
