Scallop Square Box

Hi  - This cute little box was a cooperative effort and I love the Picture or Video 014 way it turned out!  While I figured out the box dimensions and how to score and fold it, my stampin’ buddy Julie did the design for the lid….in this case, two heads were better than one!  As Julie knows all too well (because I make her crazy with a ruler :0) ), I like to use whole numbers or at least reasonable fractions.  AND – I like to maximize the paper and not waste space.  I’m a little nutty that way.  Soooo, the top and bottom pieces are the square scallop die run through the Big Shot and the box is made from an 8x8¼ sheet of cardstock.  The box itself is an 8x8 sheet and the hinge is that little piece of ¼” on one end.  The sides are 2” tall so it's a pretty deep box – big enough to hold two of the medium sized SU! punches.  We used the new paper pack from the Occasions mini Picture or Video 016 and added the felt leaves and a punched circle of the polka dot DSP on one flower.  The closure is a tab punch that hooks behind a button.  The clear button is backed in a piece of the polka dotted DSP too.

I hope you like it!  Holler if you have any questions -
