The new Designer Series Paper that I was given to make displays with was called Party Animal and it features all sorts of fun animals wearing cute party hats. The paper reminded me of this box that I made several years ago and so I decided to make another one. It is a really simple box and I hope that you will give it a try.

The box starts with a sheet of cardstock 8 1/2 by 11 inches. Score the cardstock at 5 1/2 and then cut at 4 1/4. This will give you the bases for 2 boxes.
Next, make a mark at the center of the top and bottom with a pencil. Then score a line from the top center mark to the center score line you made at the beginning. Do this on all four sides and you will get a result such as this to the left.
Fold all your score lines to form your box.
Fold up your box and punch holes in the sides with a hole punch, then thread ribbon through the holes as shown. Fill and then tie closed.
Now you can decorate the box any way you like.
This is a box made the same way, but starting with a box base of 8 1/2 by 4 1/2.
You can come up with so many great ways to decorate your box. Check out the 25% off stamp sets! They are on sale through November!
