Wedding Favor Box Tutorial

Good morning, today I have my tutorial for the wedding thank you box that I posted on Monday as promised. The pictures are not real good but the best that I could get. I have taken lots of photos so that you can see what I did along side of the instructions. This is my first so bear with me. :o)

My image is #168 Mini Loving Wedding Couple and can be bought at at Magnolia licious.
I have coloured my image with my copic markers and added Stickles to her dress.
Finished size: 2.5 x 2.5 x 4

Getting your supplies together. You will need:
6x12 extra heavy cardstock
Scor-tape available at Magnolia-licious
hole punch
3/4 inch ribbon
Ranger Distressed inks
Items to embellish the way you would like

6x12 sheet of paper score at 2 1/2, 5, 7 1/2, 10

turn paper the long way and score at 3.5

cut the score lines on the short side. fold all score lines.

Place scor-tape on the 2" inch piece and on four of the bottom flaps starting with the 2"inch piece. (look at photo)

Turn paper over and put scor-tape on the short side of the last flap. THis will be the bottom of your box.

Start with the short side. Fold your panels together . Secure with scor-tape as you go.

Until you have a little box.

take hands a squeeze in togetheer. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THIS EVEN so your box sits straight.

Punch holes in the top thru all layers about 1/2 inch from each side. This is where your ribbon will thread thur.

If you want your box to have inking on the edges. This is where you will do that.

Next is threading your ribbon. My ribbon ia about 12" long. Now you can add your insides to it and decorate anyway you would like.

Have fun will these. It's a great little box for many LITTLE fun things.

THANKS FOR STOPPING BY TODAY!!!! I am unable to get around to of all of your blogs right now as will still have a few health problems going on. It seems to keep me away from my computer and out of my studio. :o(

I have my Colour Create post for tomorrow all scheduled and ready to go. I hope you will stop by then.
