Tutorial: Just a Box of Chocolate

The Big Score large format scoring board will be available very soon! Have you been checking out the tutorial from our team? See them all here.


Lori created this gorgeous oversized box of chocolates just in time for Valentine's Day!

She shared, "The new Big Score Board not only makes it easier to score larger sized pieces of paper, but it can also be used to trim down those larger panels that won’t fit through a standard paper cutter. All you need it the Cutting Mouse (included in The Ultimate Tool and sold separately) and you’re set!."

Supplies:


Directions:

 Start by making the Box Wrap:

 

Step 1: Trim a sheet of Sweet Treats Cardstock to 8 1/2” x 16 3/8”. She used the Big Score Board with the Cutting Mouse (and a ruler with a metal edge) to trim the cardstock since it wouldn’t fit in a regular paper cutter.


Step 2: Score all four sides at 1/2”.

Position the 8 1/2” side of the cardstock against the left wall and score at 7 3/4” and 8 5/8”. Fold and crease along each of the score lines and burnish using the edge of the scoring tool.

Trim across all the corners and notch a V at the score marks on both sides as shown in picture.

Fold all the flaps in and check for any corners that might need trimmed up a bit. Unfold flat again for step 3.


Step 3: Apply adhesive along inside (white side of the cardstock) of all the sides and notches and fold to adhere.


Step 4: Adhere ribbon to inside of front and back panels.


Step 5: Stamp butterfly images with Antique Linen Distress ink on kraft cardstock panels and adhere to inside of box wrap.

Two panels measure 7 1/8” x 7 3/8” and one panel measures 3/4” x 7 3/8”.

Next is the Box Bottom:


Step 1: Trim a sheet of Elegance cardstock to 9 3/4” x 10”


Step 2: Score all four sides at 3/4” and 1 1/2”.

Fold and crease along each of the score lines and burnish using the edge of the scoring tool.

Cut and trim corners as shown in picture, making sure to cut a small V shaped notch on the tabs.

Fold to form the box so you can make sure it’s all going to come together properly, and to check for any edges that might need trimmed up a bit. Unfold flat again for step 3.


Step 3: Apply adhesive to the outside (patterned side) of the tabs and assemble the corners of the box. The tabs will be hidden when folding over and adhering the side walls of the box.

Once all the corner tabs are attached, apply adhesive along the inside (white side) of side wall flap and fold over to form the box wall. Do this on all four sides.


Step 4: Adhere box to inside of box wrap. If desired, line box bottom with additional cardstock panel cut to 6 5/8” x 6 7/8”.



Step 5: Decorate and fill the box as desired, using left over pieces of Sweet Treats and Elegance cardstock pieces

Disappointed with the elegance card - score lines are tearing so it looks tatty. Is there something I am doing wrong? Thanks for posting the project as it's a great little box. Mine just look tatty :-(

score lightly. then score a little harder the second time, turn over and score these lines again(45 degree angle on the score tool). fold over and and crease fold with tool.
