6,5"square box and two more patterns, with video

Today's box was designed as 1"high for pretty necklaces we make and sell in our giftshop where I volunteer.
But in the video I made a 2" high one for a more versatile size, to keep or gift square card  for example.
If you don't any scraps you can make the box 6"square and 3"high and use the whole 12"x12"sheet.
I used pretty foiled papers from Craft Sensation, but any you have will work, of course.


Start with the bottom piece and add a scrap as a shim.

So for this exact box I show in the video, you need a piece of paper that is 10,5"square.
And you score at 2" and 8,5"inches on  both sides, or 2"on all 4 sides .
Burnish and reinforce the scorelines, then notch and if you want add a thumbnotch.
Glue as indicated. FOld the top piece around the bottom one, so it will fit exactly.

Add a pretty ribbon or diecuts, felt flowers etc, whatever you like.
