ShortCuts Clear Box

My first month as DT member for ShortCuts is over already. It is great to be part of the ShortCuts team as I love the products. The clear card blanks/sheets and Gift Card Holder Folders are so much fun to work with. ShortCuts does not only sell clear and frosted card blanks, but also full sheets (8.5x11") that you can use for all kinds of projects. Today I show you a clear box that I made of 2 clear full sheets.



Tutorial



Cut a 7 1/2" square, and a 5 3/16" square
Score the 7 1/2" square piece at 2" on all 4 sides
Score the 5 3/16" square piece at 3/4" on all 4 sides
Make one cut from the outside edge to the inner square on each corner of both pieces
Fold the flaps in and glue down to form the box and top
Now you can decorate the box and top



Supplies: ShortCuts Clear Full Sheet Patterned paper, ribbon: Making Memories Love Notes Flower: Prima Marketing Button: Rusty Pickle Rub-ons: Melissa Frances Tools: Sizzix Big Shot, Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels One, Martha Stewart Doily Lace Edge Punch Ink: VersaColor Pinecone Other: twine, foam tape

I'll be back tomorrow with a card.
