Hi everyone! Laurie here, and I've got a fun little project to share...with a tutorial! During the May's release Sneak Peeks, I shared THIS tissue holder that I made with the new Doctor's Orders set. I received many requests to share a tutorial, so here it is! :-)
To start, you will need a piece of cardstock that measures 4 5/8" x 8" and another piece that measures 4 1/2" x 6 1/2".
First, you will need to score both pieces of cardstock. The 4 5/8" x 8" piece needs to be scored at 1 1/2", 2 5/8", 5 1/4", & 6 3/8" (make sure that the c.s. is horizontal).
Score the smaller piece of c.s. at 1" on all four sides as shown in the picture below.
Using a bone folder, crease each fold well (this makes for a neater box).
Next, make four vertical slits to create little "flaps" in each corner as shown in the picture below.
This next step is optional, but one that I think makes for a nicer end product. Cut part of each flap off (making diagonal cuts) as shown in the picture below.
Finally, assemble boxes using strong adhesive (like Taylor's Sticky Tape) and place a small folded ribbon on one end of the bottom box (this will be the ribbon pull that is used to open the box).
For my finished box, I placed a piece of layered and decorated c.s. measuring 4 12" x 2 1/2" on the top. The adorable tissue box (from Doctor's Orders) is stamped on Choice Buttercream c.s. and colored in with Copics. The decorative layer underneath the tissue box was created using my Labels Four Nestabilities. For embellishments, I added some Stickles and buttons!
That's it! I hope you find these instructions helpful! ~Laurie
