Studio Sunday...

Hello Everyone!!!
Today I have a fun tutorial for cute gift box..and its GREEN project, we will recycle or I should say Upcycle some craft supplies.
Lets start with the supplies....

1 sheet of 2" x 2" cardstock, double sided DP,  riddon,Scor-tape, nestabilities -Large scallop circle and circle dies, a Sassy image (colored) and the thin chipboard from the back of the paper pads we use for crafting...Yeah will recycle it now.
Step 1:

Cut 2 scalloped circles out of thin chipboard( Back of the paper pad) and 4 scalloped circles out of the cardstock..using the Spellbinders large scalloped circle die...if don't have that die you can use any other thing to cut out above all into 5" circle( can use a small dish too).

Step 2:
Make a sandwich of two cardstock circle with the chipboard circle in the middle..just to cover the chipboard...adhere firmly...Repeat again to make two of it. This will the base and the top of the box.

Step 3:

Cut 1 strip of 2" X 11" piece of cardstock and another 1"x 11" piece.
Cut 7-8 pieces of 1/2" x 2" cardstock.

Step 4:

Apply scor-tape to short end of the 2" x11" cardstock strip and adhere the ends to form a pipe like circle.
Step 5:

Fold the 3 -1/2" x 2" strips into half...apply scor-tape and adhere to the circle in a L-pattern shown in the picture above.
Step 6:

Adhere the circular rim to the base scallop circle... then adhere smaller circle die-cut piece of the DP inside
(I used the largest die from the Large Scallop Nesties and second largest circle die from the Large Circle nesties.)
This makes the base of the box..

Step 7:
Repeat steps 4-6 with the 1" x11" strip of the cardstock to form the lid..check to make sure the the lid fits perfectly inside the base.

Step 8:

Now the pretty part...adhere another die cut circle on the top of the box...added the Sassy image ..I used the TEDDY BEAR..I love it . I also added a die cut heart which can be used as a tag to write a message or name.
I just added a strip of 1 1/2" x 11" strip of DP on the outside of the box to make it  prettier..but its optional.

Embellish it  anyway you like..I added a lovely bow and Faux stitching with a white gel pen..

It will a perfect for candies, jewelry, small craft supplies...etc..a fancy gift box for someone special.
Hope you all like this tutorial .
