Just For You

Hi Everyone
It's that time to give a friend a little "Just Because" gift. If you are like me I am always in need for a sweet gift for the wonderful friends in my life.
Today I wanted to share such a gift.
This is a super fun little project and it's so versatile in what you can put in the container.

Let's get started.

You'll need:
(1) 11" x 6" blue cards stock
(1) Digital Delights Girl Bear digi stamp
Pattern Paper
Sticky strip

Step 1:
With your 11" x 6" card stock score the 11" side at 4 1/2" and 6 1/2"

Step 2:
On the 6" side of the card stock score at 1 1/4" and 4 3/4"

Step 3:
Cut along the 1 1/4" and the 4 3/4" score lines up to the 4 1/2" and 6 1/2" score lines

Step 4:
Cut 2 1/2" off each of the four 1 1/4" strips

Step 5:
Adhere the 1 1/4" strips together to form the box base. Apply sticky strip to just one side of the strip.

Step 6:
Decorate the front and back of your box/bag

Step 7:
Using sticky strip attach the front and back pieces to keep the box/bag closed at the top.

Step 8:
Fill with some treats and watch your friends thrilled reaction.

Have a fantastic day everyone.
