Libby Ladybug Crayon Box


Hi Everyone
Today I'd like to share a tutorial on what I'll call a crayon box.
This is a great box for 4 x 4 cards or even a spool of ribbon for a sweet stamping friend.
Lets get started.
Supplies you'll need:
Stamps:
Digital stamp - Libby Ladybug from Digital Delights
Paper:
Box
(1) Red card stock 10" x 6"
Back of Box Panels
(1) Blue card stock 3 7/8" x 3 7/8"
(1) Pattern Paper 3 3/4" x 3 3/4"
Top of Box Panels
(2) Blue card stock 2 1/4" x 3 7/8"
(2) Pattern Paper 2 1/8" x 3 3/4"

Accessories:
Scallop circle punch
1 1/4" circle punch
Score Tape
Scissors
Signo white pen
Copic makers
Ribbon
Bling
Velcro dot

Step 1:
On the 10" side of the 6" x 10" red card stock score at 2 1/2", 3", 7" and 7 1/2"
On the 6" side score the card stock at 1/2", 1", 5" and 5 1/2"


Step 2:
Cut away the corners. To do this place card stock on the table vertically. Cut along the 1" score line up to the second score line. See photo below. Fold your card stock on your score lines using a bone folder for crisp folds.




Step 3:
Since the flaps are the same size it doesn't matter which one you fold over the other.
Add adhesive to the sides of one of the flaps to create the pocket. See photo below for placement of the adhesive.

Step 4:
Adhere the card stock and patter paper to create three panels.


Step 5:
Adhere the panels to the box. See photo below for placement.


Step 6:
Adhere box together.

Step 8:
Decorate! I've used Libby Ladybug and colored her using Copic markers. I've also added some bling and a ribbon on the top of the box. I've also used a Velcro dot at my choice for a closure.



Thanks so much for joining me today for another Tuesday Tutorial at Digital Delights!
Have a fantastic day.
