Fresh Cut Flowers Tutorial

Several ladies emailed me about this little box that I made. I think there is a tutorial on SCS for the 3" x 3" box, but I thought I would try and do a tutorial here. This is my first Tutorial, so I hope you can understand it. I would appreciate any feedback. I hope the spacing comes out OK when I publish this post. -- sorry if it doesn't.

Fresh Cut Flowers Note Card Box

Supplies: 2 pieces of card stock (CS), 2 pieces of designer paper (DP), paper cutter/scorer, scissors, sticky tape, and mono adhesive

Step 1: Score and crease Old Olive (8½” x 8½”) CS at 2” on each side. Cut out tabs on each corner.


Step 2: Attach Fall Flowers (2” x 4½”) DP to each side. Attach sticky strip to corner flaps.





Step 3: Remove film from sticky strip, fold in tabs, and secure sides to form box.





Step 4: Score and crease Old Olive (6-5/8” x 6-5/8”) CS at 1” on each side. Create lid the same way you did the box. Cut out tabs on each corner. Attach Fall Flowers (4-3/8” x 4-3/8”) DP to center square. Attach Fall Flowers (1” x 4½”) DP to each side. Attach sticky strip to corner flaps. Remove film from sticky strip, fold in tabs, and secure sides to form lid.



Step 5: Decorate as desired.

Amazing! I love 3" boxes so it's fantastic to have options. This one is amazing! I think the spacing is gorgeous, but I learned a new trick today (after growling at the computer for a 1/2 hour trying to space...) If you go into edit html, in edit posts, it lets you have more control over spacing. Pictures show up as this code that starts with ... a onblur="try ... You can do wysiwyg editing & enter lines or delete em. But I'd save a copy of the html of your post in case maybe. (I'm no pro, but it sure helped me!) :0) mel

P.S. I can't believe this is your first tutorial. You ROCK!
