Tutorial: The Big Score Golden Anniversary Wine Box

We're so excited to announce that later this week, The Big Score will be available! To create BIG papercrafting projects you’ll need a BIG scoring platform. With the innovative Crafter’s Companion Big Score tool, you’ll be able to create large shaped cards, boxes and much more!

This tutorial features a Wine Box that Kendra made that would be perfect for a Golden Anniversary celebration using the brand new Big Score board.  Here is a photo of the closed box:

Here's how she made her box:.

Step 1: Gather some 12x16 Construction Cardstock and trim it to 11 3/4" x 15 1/2". If you have A3 size, you don't need to trim.

Step 2: Using the shorter side of the cardstock, hold it securely to the left edge. Score it at 3 1/4", 6 1/2" and 9 3/4"

Step 3: Fold the last score mark (9 3/4") and hold that securely at the left edge of the board and score at 3 1/4".

Step 4: Turn the paper so the long edge is along the left side of the board and score at 3 1/4" all the way down the cardstock.

Step 5: Along the first two score marks, cut a V-shape. Cut the third score mark and then trim the last piece out completely (see below). The fourth full square will be the bottom of the box.

Step 6: Add a strong adhesive to the smallest flap (bottom) and on each of the first three squares & assemble your box. This is your base box  & the top will be open.

Step 7: To make the top of the box, trim a piece of Construction Cardstock to 8 1/4" x 14 1/2". Using the bottom of the score board, securely hold the cardstock to the right edge and score at 3 1/4".

Step 8: Fold the edge, and then hold that edge to the right side and score again at 3 1/4".  Repeat 2 more times folding the cardstock after each score mark.

Step 9: The final score mark will leave a smaller flap. That will be the flap on the inside with adhesive that holds the box in place.

Flip the cardstock and holding it along the left edge score at 3 1/4" all the way down.

Attach like you did the base in Step 5 & 6.

Step 10:  For the inside liner for the base, trim a piece of Construction Cardstock to 11 3/4" x 14 1/2".  Score at 3 1/8", fold and score again on that fold at 3 1/8" and repeat until the end of the cardstock.

Add adhesive to the smallest flap and attach to the opposite section to make a tube (it will be open at each end).

Step 11: Here are the three pieces for the wine box (left to right): Lid, Liner, Base Box..

Step 12: After you make sure the liner fits inside the base, add a bit of adhesive to the bottom 4 sides and fit it inside.  From the inside, push down on the cardstock to make sure the adhesive sticks

Decorate as desired.
