2,4,6,8 Boxes


These little boxes are super easy to make, and can be embellished so many different ways for just about any occasion. You can leave them open on top and fill with goodies, or you can pinch the top closed and tie some ribbon around it, you can put handles on them, you can make them taller, shorter...the possibilities are endless!  This is one of two projects my stamp club will be making this month. I filled a cello bag with red and white M&M's and tied with some ribbon and a tag. This took about 15 minutes to make, and you can get two boxes from one sheet of cardstock. All you need is some cardstock, a paper trimmer with a scoring blade, some adhesive, and whatever you want to embellish with. Check out Amy's blog here for some easy to follow instructions on how to make these!

Supplies used: Simply Said and Tags So Much stamp sets, cardstock in Regal Rose, Groovy Guava, and Whisper White, scallop, circle and tag punches, white gel pen, grosgrain ribbon, cello bag, Stickles.
