It's called a 2-4-6-8 box...and it's made out of a half sheet of cardstock.
I'll be demonstrating how to make it at my first Stampin' Up workshop on Thursday night.
I love it...and thought it would be perfect for a little "thinking of you" gift for Visiting teachers or others you think need a pick me up.
The directions are simple:
Stamp the 8 1/2"x 5 1/2 cardstock as desired for decoration.
Score the paper at 2", 4", 6" and at 8".
Turn the paper and score 2" from the bottom all the way across.
Cut the 2"x 1/2" piece out and discard.
Fold along the scored lines.
Put adhesive along the 3 1/2" x 1/2" piece and glue to the larger side next to it.
Fold the bottom pieces in, one at a time, gluing each one to the next.
Fold the sides of the box in (like a milk carton).
Cut slits near the top and put ribbon through it.
Voila! You have made one too!
