Here's what I created using my Box die.  I based my ideas for these boxes on the one I saw in the catalog.  I made a mistake with the first one and ended up with 2 great boxes as a result!

  • I started with 2 pieces of DSP 6 1/2" x 4 1/2" (this gave me some extra space, but the box is kind of tall, so 6" won't do it.)
  • Run each pieces through the big shot using the box cut out.  It goes through and cuts and scores your box!  Cool!
  • For these, I created a window, so I took one of my pieces and ran it back through the big shot with the heart in the center to make a window.
  • I added a piece of Window sheet on the inside to create the "window"
  • To put your box together: fold all of the score lines first, then lay your 2 pieces next to each other, with the top rounded flap facing opposite directions.  One faces up and one faces down.  

  • Now add some tear & tape to the outside edges of one of the pieces.
  • Attach this to the other piece by overlapping the same edge.
  • Tuck both ends in to close the box.

  • Now you have your box.  Decorate as desired. 
  • I decorated one with heat embossing and the other with a gold vinyl sticker, some ribbon and a banner.  Love how they both turned out!
These boxes also fit our new notecards & envelopes!
