You need 2 pieces of light weight chipboard. I save the sheets that come in the back of my Designer Paper packs. You need one cut to 2 7/8 X 4 7/8, and another 9 7/8 X 4. Make sure to take out your cutting blade to score. Take the smaller piece and score on the long side at 2. Take the larger piece, first score on the short side at 2. Then, along the long side at 3 3/8, 6 1/4, and 9 1/8. Turn it around and score it in the 9 1/ position again.
I have had a few people email me about the eighth measurements, so I took a picture to help you. The red highlights are the /8th measurements, and the blues are the quarters. I have written in the measurements, too, so you know what they are.
I hope this will help, but if you have anymore questions, post them below, and I'll try to help out.
Then, on the bottom, up to the score line in the middle, and then cut out the two bottom corners. It should look like the first picture. Then, take your small tag punch and punch the top middle section - DO NOT GO ALL THE WAY DOWN!!
Now, you need to put some sticky strip on the 2 small tabs on top, and in the middle on the bottom. The second picture shows how it needs to be folded. The back of the cube is missing, but that is what the other piece of chipboard is for.
Peel off the red liner on the two tabs, and line up the other piece of chipboard, making sure the score line matches with the bottom of the cube. Fold the flap under the bottom and adhere it to the front flap .
Cut a piece of CS and chipboard to be 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 and glue them together. Put sticky strip on t he back and add it to the bottom of the cube.
Now cut a piece of DSP 2 X 12, and put sticky strip on one end on the back side. Also, put sticky strip all the way around the top of the cube and down the corners. Then add the DSP making sure to keep it level with the top all the way around.
When you get to the end, take off the liner from the DSP and stick it down to cover the seam. Use your craft knife to cut the front open again.
So, I cut my paper to be 2 3/4 X 2 3/4 to fit on the inside easily. I'm not sure ow many sheets I cut up, but it does not take long. Though, I have to admit that I have a Stampin' Up! Guillotine Cutter.
I tied on the ribbon and now it is ready for use - it would make a great gift to give away to the teacher for year end. Have fun and happy stamping!!
