I wanted to make something that was easy, and pretty, but easily changed and embellished. I think it turned out pretty AWESOME, but you will have to let me know in a comment at the bottom of the post!
You will also need a piece of CS that is 4 X 12, 2 pieces that are 3 1/4 C 1 3/4, and two scrap pieces of white that are at least 4 inches long. You are going to need some ribbon, and scrap CS for embellishing as desired.
I used scrap pieces for everything, but the 4 X 12 CS. This was, you can get 3 containers out of one sheet. That makes it a really inexpensive way to package up pretty much anything!!
Score the piece of 4 X 12 at 4, 6 1/4, and 10 1/4. Then score the (2) 3 1/4 X 1 3/4 pieces at 1/2 on 3 sides. Fold them over, and cut the bottoms corners out on the score lines as shown.
Fold the 4 X 12 piece on all the score lines, and on the 1 3/4 X 4 flap, use your scallop edge punch to finish of the edge. Then punch the flap with the double rectangle in the middle, and fold it down onto the front of the box. Trace the holes on the layer underneath, to make sure it will all be lined up, punching that layer then too.
Take one piece of scrap white CS (mine was about 1 inch wide), and line it up on the edge of the flap. Trace the holes on it and punch it, too. Then, taking some ribbon, thread it through the holes, and adhere it to the back.
Adhere it to the flap, making sure to line it up with the holes you already have. I then used my other piece of scrap white to make another scallop edge for the bottom and, making sure it did not cover the holes, attached it to the back of the flap.
Then, I used my 1 1/4 square punch to make the window. I pushed it into the CS as far as it could go, so that the window was about 2 inches from the top. You are now punching are the flap FARTHEST from the scallop edge (this flap measure 4 X 4). Then turn it over, and punch in from the other side, lining up over the other hole, as pictured above.
Now, taking your 3 1/4 X 1 3/4 pieces, add sticky strip to each of the flaps you created with the scoring. Removing the liner from the long edge and one small one, adhere it to the middle small scored area on the 4 X 12 CS. Adhere the other one the same way, and when you are ready to assemble the box, remove the last of the liners, and fold up the back of the box. Thread enough ribbon through the holes on the front of the box, that you will be able to tie a bow.
Fill up your box with the GIFT, and pull the ribbon through the scallop edge flap. Tie a bow, a then embellish as you see fit. I used the branch punch, and the mini butterfly punch (both Martha Stewart), and glued them around the window. I also covered the butterflies with Stickles from All That Scraps. You can fill this with anything, from chocolates, to cookies, to embellishments, to whatever you think you could fit in there! It would make a nice gift box for teachers or friends at Valentine's. You could cover it with DP to make it fit a theme, or use a scallop nestie or punch to create the window. So many possibilities, so little time (good thing, I make time...hehehe). Have fun and happy stamping!!
