It Once Was a Faceted Box

I mentioned earlier last week that I made some rescue efforts to save what I could from a cool box I had made.  This is the cool faceted box I made.  After spending some time making just the right embellishments and twine ties for the top I quickly set to taking a picture of my masterpiece.  Not more than seconds after taking the photo I dropped the box on the floor and stepped right on it.  I mean I squashed it like a bug!  I saved what was worth saving and set out to make something else.  Since then I have made a couple new faceted boxes--they are kind of addicting.

To make these:
  • Cut two 6" square pieces of cardstock or DSP. 
  • Using an Envelope Punch Board, punch and score at the 3" mark of each side. 
  • Using a Simple Score Tool, score all four sides of both 6" square pieces at 3/8". 
  • To one of the 6" square pieces add Sticky Strip to the four edges. 
  • Fold inward on all scorelines.
  • Peel backin on Sticky Strip and assemble the box.
