Boo Boxes

Hpim1395 At convention this year, Jaron Winder demonstrated BOO BOXES.   These were so cute, I couldn't wait to try them for myself!  My boxes did not turn out as tall & skinny as his…mine are a little shorter and stubbier, but still cute!

I've included step-by-step instructions below.  Feel free to email me at melissa42@msn.com if you have any questions.

SUPPLY LIST:

Stamp Set:  Booglie Eyes

Paper:  Creepy Crawly Designer Series Paper, 12 x 12 More Mustard, 12 x 12 Pumpkin Pie, 12 x 12 Basic Black, Whisper White Scraps

Ink:  Basic Black Classic Ink, Whisper White Craft Ink

Markers:  Sahara Sand, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Lovely Lilac, Green Galore

Accessories:  On Board Simon Upper, Black grosgrain ribbon, Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Sticky Strip, Mini & Pop-Up Glue Dots, Scoring Tool (I use the scoring blade on the paper cutter)

Step 1:  Score the 12 x 12 cardstock at 4" on each side, and diagonally on each corner.  See Diagram.

Step 2:  Fold along the score lines, pinch corners together.  I folded the flaps inside and used staples to hold the box together.  You could also fold the flaps to the outside and/or use adhesive to secure the flaps.  There is no right or wrong way to do it.

Step 3:  Cut 3 pieces of the Designer Series Paper to 7" square.  Score at 1 3/8" on all 4 sides.  Cut along the lines indicated in the template shown below.  Use sticky strip to adhere the corners together to complete the box lid.  With lid on box, tie 22" of black grosgrain ribbon around lid and trim the ends.

Step 4:  Now here's a great trick!  Because there is only one of each letter in the On Board Simon Upper Chipboard, you would normally have to buy 2 packages in order to spell the word "BOO".  However, you can turn the "Q" into another "O" just by trimming the little thingy (I'm sure there is a technical term for it, but you know what I mean).

Step 5:  To get that glittery look, sponge each letter with Whisper White Craft Ink and emboss with Iridescent Ice embossing powder.  Adhere the letters to your boxes with Pop-up glue dots.

Step 6:  Stamp images from the Booglie Eyes stamp set onto whisper white cardstock.  Color with markers or watercolor with the medium of your choice.  Cut out images and adhere to boxes with mini glue dots.

Step 7:  Display your boxes around your home or office, make up a few as gifts, and enjoy hearing lots of "ooooohs" and "aaaaaaahs".
