Snowflake Christmas Box

Today I have to share with you the final project from the November Make and Take. This cute little box was created with the Mini Milk Carton Die.

Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Card Stock: Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla
DSP: Holly Berry Bouquet
Ink: Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: Mini Milk Carton Die, Decorative Label punch, Snowflake punch, Modern Label punch, Word Window Punch, Chery Cobbler Dotted Scalloped ribbon, Crop-A-Dile, Sticky Strip, Stampin' Dimensionals, Dazzling Details

I will explain how to make this as best as I can. After Christmas I will put together a photo tutorial for you. Cut two pieces of Garden Green card stock just large enough to cover the Mini Milk Carton Die. Cut out two milk cartons by running the die with the cardstock through the Big Shot. Cut off the milk carton section on the end that does not have the flap. You only need three sections on both of your card stock pieces. Fold on all of the score lines and add Sticky Strip onto the flaps on the sides of the die cut pieces.

Cut six pieces of DSP 1-3/8" x 1-3/4" and adhere onto each of the six sections of the milk carton pieces. Remove the Sticky Strip liner from one of the side flaps and adhere the two milk cartons together to make one long strip. Remove the Sticky Strip liner from the remaining flap and adhere the ends of the card stock strip together to form a hexagon. Adhere the bottom flaps of the box together. Fold the top section in so you have six mountain folds sticking out. Use the Crop-A-Dile to punch a hole in through the top of the mountain folds. Repeat this until you have a hole in all six mountain folds. Run a piece of ribbon through the holes and tie it into a bow.

For the decoration on the front stamp the greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Cherry Cobbler ink onto a scrap of Very Vanilla card stock. Punch out the greeting with the Word Window punch. Use the Modern Label punch on a scrap of Garden Green card stock. Adhere the word window label onto the modern label.

Use the Decorative Label punch on a scrap of Very Vanilla card stock. Use the Snowflake punch on a scrap of Cherry Cobbler card stock. Adhere the snowflake onto the decorative label with Two-Way Glue Pen. Adhere the modern label layer on top of the snowflake with Stampin' Dimensionals. Adhere the finished label onto the box with Stampin' Dimensionals. Add Dazzling Detail onto the snowflake to give it some sparkle.

That's it! These cute little boxes are really pretty easy to make. They would make fabulous party favors or small gift boxes!
