Chrissie made a simple gift box, held closed by a shaker tag. Want to see how she did it?
Step 1: Start with a piece of cardstock cut to 8.25" x 14".
Step 2: Flipped the cardstock over and start scoring lengthwise. (If preferred, score on the back.) Here are the scoring measurements: 1 3/8" 4 1/8" 6 7/8" 9 5/8".
Step 4: Then, turn it back and partially score (leaving out the center section): 2 1/4" 8 3/4"
Step 4a: Your sheet should be as pictured above.
Step 5: Cut lines (where you scored ONLY halfway) and at the bottom of that cut. It forms a "T."
Step 5a: I will now look as pictured above. Tip: if you do not make smooth cuts, use sandpaper or an paper filer to smooth the edges.
Step 6: Fold all of scores and adhere the center section to create a box. Then adhere the sides. It will all push up towards the center when it's done.
Step 7: The shaker tag: I cut out a heart from the Die'Sire Essentials: Hearts and the cut out a second one, with another one in the center. I wanted the frame (not the center piece).
Step 7: Die cut some acetate.
Step 8: Place the heart frame on some foam and trace around it. This will be hidden, so it doesn't need to be perfect.
Step 9: Cut it out.
Step 10: Adhere it to the back of the frame using Collall Tacky Glue. Add some fun heart confetti inside and just glue the first heart cut out to the back.
Step 11: Die cut butterflies and add as desired.
Step 12: Add some twine to the back of the shaker and a brad on the side to hold it closed. I also added a little Worn Lipstick Distress Ink to the edges of the box.
