We're still in the Christmas mood here at Crafter's Companion and we're really wanting to help our customers prep...and prep well for Christmas! Diana has provided this lovely tutorial to help you create a stunning gift box for your presents at Christmas....that extra little touch shows you really care..and we know your friends and family will cherish your box in years to come

To Create the Box:

  1. Cut a piece of A3 snow white Centura Pearl to measure 11 ¼” square.Score it @ 2 ¾” on all four sides using the Box Base side of the Big Score Board. Cut into each corner section as far as the score line and remove a slim notch. Fold the corner tab sections in and glue in place with tacky glue. This will form the box base.

  1. Repeat for all four sides of box lid. Cut into each corner section as far as the score line and remove a slim notch then trim the tab down to approx. ¼” to prevent the tab from showing through the die-cut section.
