Christmas Wrapper Box

I found this tutorial in a recent magazine on how to make this Christmas Wrapper box which is perfect for a small gift or some yummies for the tummy.

Naturally I had to try to make one Stampin' Up style.  I have used the Scentsational Season stamp set and the Holiday Collection Framelits Dies.  DSP is Be of Good Cheer and cardstock is Very Vanilla, ribbon is Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding.

I the instructions on how I made it at the end of this post.

How I Made It

Start with a 12" x 12" piece of cardstock.

Score the cardstock at 2 1/2", 5", 7 1/2" and 10".

Fold the cardstock concertina style (valley fold, mountain fold, valley fold etc)

Measure in 1/2" from each end on both sides and put a small pencil mark.  Measure 2 1/2" from this point.  Find the centre of the 2 1/2" measurement at 1 1/4" again put a small pencil mark.  Measure towards the centre 1" and put a small pencil mark.  Draw a triangle (See diagram 1 for an example of the measurements)

 Diagram 1

Cut the triangle out, cutting through all layers.  This forms the diamond shape on the end of the wrapper.  See Diagram 2.

Diagram 2

Cut a piece of DSP 12" x 5 3/4" and adhere to the centre of the cardstock piece.  It should look like Diagram 3.  At this stage you can ink the edges if you wish.

Diagram 3

Join the sides together to form a box.  See Diagram 4.

Diagram 4

Tye ribbon around the end pieces, this pulls the ends together to.  Finally you can decorate the box.
