Hello Kitty and tutorial number 2

Here is the 2nd tutorial using the same scallop envelope die from yesterdays post. This time I used the Hello Kitty embosslit die to decorate the box.I stamped the background paper with the Hero Arts houndstooth stamp. And the border punch is another MS punch that I bought from Ben Franklin Crafts.This box is skinnier and I stuck a post it note pad inside the box. You can put a bag of hershey candy bars inside this box. Here's the tutorial to make this box.Step 1: Cut 2 pieces of cardstock using the SU scalloped envelope die.
Step 2: Cut off 3/4" on the bottom of both pieces. I took the photo this way so you can see where I cut the piece off. Step 3: Put 2 way tape on both of the tab sides and also 2 strips on the bottom of the envelope die piece. You only have to put the 2 way tape on one of the pieces. Once again I used Score Pal tape to hold the pieces together. If you get a chance, try this tape out. You won't be disappointed.


Step 4: Join the 2 bottom pieces together matching it up at the score line.
Step 5: Join the sides together and you're done! Wasn't that quick and easy?
And since I was using purple cardstock to make this tutorial, I decided to finish decorating my box.
I used that houndstooth stamp again for my background paper. It's becoming another one of my favorite stamps to use right now.
Thanks for stopping by today and hope you're enjoying the rest of your day!!!
