Tutorial Tuesday - Box in a bag

Today it's Tutorial Tuesday again at Shelly's, and I surfed down the internet to find a nice box for you to make, cause I bet you all know right now, I love Boxes and special fold Cards!!!

Supplies: Cardstock 4,5 x 4,5
Desingner Paper 5,5 x 11
Strip of Cardstock 1 x 11
Scallop Punch

Take the Cardstock 4,5 x 4,5 inch and score at 1 inch all around

Cut on the lines as shown and glue or tape your box together.

Take your Designer Paper and put tape on the bottem and and up one side of the back of the background paper.

Now peel of the tape an lay your box along the bottem edge of the DP so they are even withe each other, start about half way on the side of the box and go around.

Take your strip of Cardstock 1 x 11 inch and your Scallop Punch, after punching put on some tape and wrap it around as the picture shows.

If you have a tab use it, I don't, so I took a nestabilitie to make a circle.

Put 2 tabs or folded circles at the front and the back of the Box (in the middle ofcourse) and punch a hole in it.

Now the final step, take your ribbon and put the box together, after you filled it up with some nice treats.

I hope you all have a lot of fun making this Box, I put mine togehter in less than half an hour, so if you need a quick present, this is perfect Box to make.
