Hi everyone! I have another Stamping Bella Thursday Tutorial for you and today I am sharing this Dandy Lion Gift Box. With Mother's Day coming up for my Stateside friends (We celebrate Mother's Day in March) I thought this would make a fabulous and unusual gift box to present a little gift, or chocolates.
The image I used is one of the BRAND NEW Dandy Lion stamps. I can't get enough of this guy.
Scoring board and bone folder
Circle, scalloped circle, and pennant dies
Twine or ribbon
To make the split box cut 2 pieces of card measuring 8" x 5" and repeat the following steps on both pieces.
Score on the 8" side at 3" and 5"
With the 2" section at the top, score from the outer corner of the 2" line diagonally to the inside corner of that 3" square, on both sides.
Shorten the centre section to about half the size.
Fold the outer triangles of the 3" squares inwards and crease with a bone folder. Trim a little if necessary. Once you're happy with the fit, apply adhesive and stick them down.
Apply adhesive to the inside of the tab you shortened.
For the decorative layers, cut:
White card -
2x 2.75" square, cut diagonally to make 4 triangles.
4x 2-7/8" x 1-7/8" pieces
2x 2.5" square, cut diagonally to make 4 triangles.
4x 2.75" x 1.75" pieces
Adhere all the paper pieces to the white card pieces and adhere them to the top, bottom, and sides of the box.
Score at 1-7/8" on all four sides.
Cut some decorative borders for the box.
