Christmas Gift Box

This little box is super easy to make. I used the new paper pack Yueltide Carol from Close To My Heart.You could use whatever paper stirkes you fancy , of course. 
You will need: 1- 12 x 12 sheet of plain cardstock 
                      1-print paper cut to 8 1/8 inches  x 8 1/8 inches
                      1- coordinating print paper cut at 5 7/8 inches x 5 7/8 inches
                          to line the bottom of the box, and give it a little more stability

The poinsettia is cut with Ruby red cardstock. This was made using a Spellbinder diecut. If you do not have this, there are lots of them on many of the Cricut Cartridges . The leaves are cut from New England Ivy. The box bottom is champagne, as is the tag. The tag is mounted on New England Ivy.The stamp is from the Yueltide Carol Scrapbooking Workshop, and is stamped using Ruby. The bling is also from the same WOTG, from Close To MY Heart.
The daisy like flower is white, and the edges were inked with Pear. The middle is Creme Brulee.
I made these darling little flowers from a tutorial by Cathy Derouche.  Click on her name to view tutorial.She does such a good job, there is no need for me to do it again.
So, all that is left, is constructing the box. Score the box bottom on all four sides at 3 inches. Using siccors, cut top and bottom lines to make tabs,  into where the fold lines meet.DO NOT cut side fold lines . I then cut small wedges from the inside of each corner tab. Fold in, and glue.(see diagrams)
Score the box top on all four sides at 1 inch. Follow the same procedure as above.
Decorate as desired

1. Score lines ( I went over 
mine with pen to show.

 2. cut to fold line, then cut out wedge in each tab

 3. Fold along all fold lines
 4. fold tabs in and glue

 5. Glue coordinating carstock
in bottom on box.

  If you have any problems with following my directions  , please do not hesitate to let me know. thank you for your interest, and for checking out my blog.
