The dimensions of the box are 4 x 5 x 1. The size of the DSP and card stock was cut to 6 x 7 and scored at one inch on each edge. To figure out the size paper you need to make a box, measure the length and width of the finished box you want, take the depth and double it and add that to the length and width--does that make sense? So in my example 4 x 5 x 1 box, the 1 is the depth so doubling that would be 2. I add 2 to the 4 (6) and 2 to the 5 (7). I hope I didn't confuse everyone!! (I'm really not that good at math!) With your Paper Snips, make a small cut on the score from the edge to the 1" score line, only on two parallel sides not all of them (you don't want to completely cut out the corners, just allow them to fold). I used Sticky Strip to hold my corners together. I absolutely love being able to make boxes to coordinate with my gift, it just brings the whole thing together! And it looks cute, too!
Now you can head on over to Michelle and see her beautiful gift box. ( I think I will have to try out her bath salts recipe!)
