Good Tuesday Tutorial to you. Today's tutorial was inspired by a project I saw on Amanda Corbet's blog. I made a change on the dimensions, the tutorial is in my own words and shown using Clear Dollar Stamps Products. I think you'll like it as much as I do. It is easy and whips up quickly depending on how much you decide to embellish it. But that is the fun part isn't it. I will show you a few ideas for using it also at the end. Easter and Mother's Day are coming up.
Start with a 3 1/2 x 11" piece of NIGHT ECLIPSE CARDSTOCK.
Now turn your cardstock to the left so your 3 1/2 " side is up against the top of your SCOR-PAL. Score at 1 1/4.
Here you just cut your flaps. Along the bottom here you cut at your score lines up to the 1 1/4" score line...cut out the right hand bottom corner. (In my photo I pulled up my flaps a little so you could see ...that is all. It looks like there is a notch cut out...there is not but the right corner).
Now fold using a bone folder along all your score lines. Place a piece of Score Tape along your right flap.
Flip over and place two pieces of score tape on the left 4" long flap on the bottom. On the inside piece of tape next to the score line...leave a little space between it and the score line so it doesn't stick to your other flaps when putting together.
Print out your digital image. I am using JESUS HANDS COLOR DIGI. You need two pieces 3 x 5". I used the digital paper that is in this digi as my background and placed my image and sentiment on top. If your image goes underneath what you are putting it on top of just right click, select "order" then select "bring to front".
Now cut out two pieces of NIGHT ECLIPSE CARDSTOCK 3 1/8 x 5 1/8". I punched these corners as well.
Now cut two pieces of COTTON CANDY CARDSTOCK 3 3/8 x 5 3/8". I rounded my top corners.
Punch out a small oval (or any shape you desire, I personally love the look of the oval) up toward the top of your digi panels. I punched out my oval on one. Then put my punched out panel on the unpunched panel traced lightly the oval shape with a pencil. Then I lined up my punch upside down and punched out my oval. Now they are even on both sides.
Here are a couple more ideas for using this Bag Box:
Here's one I made for Mother's Day using the beautiful digi TULIP WREATH.
Thanks for joining me. I hope you have fun making this project.
