It kind of looks like a box doesn't it?? Well it's not a box and it isn't a card but a hybrid of the two. Sort of...lol It folds open and has a place on the inside that holds some mini envelopes. I thought that you could easily put gift cards, bath beads, cocoa or some other fun goodies in the envelopes.
Here's how I made it. First I pulled out my Ultimate Tool because I pretty much use this puppy with every project I make!! ha Seriously!!
(Please ignore the double score lines in the photo. I initially scored on the wrong line and didn't want to waste card stock making another example.)
I flipped my Ultimate Tool over to the envelope making side and made 3 envelopes. I started with a square piece of paper and scored it on all 4 sides making sure that my score lines crossed over one another.
Here is what it looked like after I was done. I could have used the heart design but I thought the design I picked looked a bit like the pattern in my patterned paper.
I pulled some ribbon from my stash and glued it down on the middle of the back panel then I adhered my patterned paper over it. I pulled it over the top of the "box" and glued it down to the front of the base and again added the patterned paper over it. You can now pull the ribbon around to the bottom of the front and tie it together in a bow. This will hold your "box" together.
I finished it off by cutting some hearts out of patterned paper and gluing then on the front and inside. I pulled out my Humphrey's Corner stamp set - Chocolate Box and stamped out the sentiment on white card stock. I trimmed it to fit into the metal frame, glued it to the back of the frame and used brads to attach it to the card.
I hope you are inspired to pull out your Ultimate Tool and make something fun!! And if you don't have an Ultimate Tool of your own, hop on over to the Crafter's Companion Store and pick one up!!
