Bright Blossoms Box

Today I have been having fun with a new stamp set from the Summer Mini catalogue called Bright Blossoms. It is such a simple set, but there are so many ways it can be used. Here are just a few. The colours I have used are: Pear Pizazz, Blushing Bride, Poppy Parade and Concorde Crush teamed with the wonderful Whisper White.

First I made a one sheet wonder style piece of card and turned it into a box.

This is what the card looked like to begin with:-

The cardstock was cut to 12x 8.5 inches. On the short side score at 2.5 inches and again at 6 inches with your simply scored from Stampin' UP!
Turn paper and score on the long side 1.25", 2.5",5",7",9.5" and 10.75"

Cut into the middle scores at 5 and 7"up to the 2.5" score on one side and then 6" score on the other side. Then go to the outer edges and score up to the 2.5" score on the 2.5 and 6" score lines then go to the other side and cut back to the 9.5" score line at both 2.5" and 6" score lines.

Next take your oval punch and punch into the middle rectangle on each end this will be your handles so make sure you go far enough in up to the edge of the first score line is good.

Then you are going to fold and crease the squares next to the middle cuts outward toward the handle section. Do all 4 squares.
Here is another picture for you.

Now you are going to reinforce your folds in the middle and flip up those flaps and you will fold each side towards the middle.

Once it is all folded, it looks like the photograph above, from the side view.

I made some 3x3 cards to co-ordinate with the box.
