Directions:

60s-box-1

Step 1: Trim two pieces of white cardstock to 5.5 x 5.5.

60-box-2

Step 2: Stamp the image in black in. Cover with clear embossing powder and activate with a heat gun. This will protect the ink from bleeding.

60s-box-3

Step 3: Use The Big Score to create the box top. Using the Box Lid side, count 4 lines over.

60s-box-4

Step 4: Repeat the same score on all four sides.

60s-box-5

Step 5: Using the other piece of cardstock, create the bottom using the Box Base side of the Big Score Board. Count 4 lines over, the same as the lid. This way, the lid and base will match.

60s-box-6

Step 6: On the lid and the base, trim out triangles on the score line on all four sides.

60s-box-7

Step 7: Place the stencil over the card base. Secure down the lid and the stencil using repositionable tape so it does not move.

60s-box-8

Step 8: Add ink using a dauber. Use multiple colours to create a tie dye effect.

60s-box-9

Step 9: Colour in the stamped image using Spectrum Noir markers.

60s-box-11

Step 11: Repeat the same process for the base.  Fold on all score lines and secure box together using adhesive.
