Business Card Holder .... OR..... Trinket Box

I'm thinking that this little box is great for just about anything small!
It holds business cards PERFECTLY!
And I just LOVE these colors!!



The box itself is cut from Chocolate Chip (using 1/2 sheet of 12 x 12 card stock) and the DSP is Chocolate Chip and Old Olive.






LET's GET STARTED!



TOOLS needed:
- Large Oval Punch
- Scallop Oval
- Sticky Strip
- Bone folder (optional)









When you get your kit, the #2 box will already be cut out for you.











You will need to fold on all the score lines... except the "lid" unless, of course, you want to use this as a gift box, instead of a business card holder.








Place sticky strip along the tab on the side of the box. (As close to the score line as possible without going over.)









Place a small piece of sticky strip on the small square flaps on the "inside" of the box. UNLESS.. you are using this for a trinket box.

Use the large oval punch on the center of "lid" of box. A little more towards the edge.. (but not too close)










Punch the Large Oval on the Very Vanilla cardstock.











Put the 'punched' Very Vanilla in the Oval Punch, and position it so that it punches out a thin frame.
(See next picture)

Assemble side of box to tab making sure the top and bottom lines up perfectly.








ASSEMBLY of bottom flaps.

Fold in largest bottom flap first










Fold in side flaps











Until they "click" into the first flap.











Tuck last flap into first flap.











Box will stay shut without any other adhesive.. If you want to make sure you can add a small piece of sticky strip to the last flap going before pushing into box.











Remove sticky strip from side tabs


















And secure them to inside of box.













Side flaps tucked in and taped down












Apply two-way glue or other adhesive to oval frame











Attach to oval in box lid









Adhere and center Chocolate Chip designer series paper onto Old Olive DSP.






Leaving Old Olive edge showing on both sides of Chocolate Chip DSP.










First postion DSP around box and pinch the corners to give you an
idea of where to fold.











Use bone folder on all corners of DSP.











Apply Snail Adhesive and position on box front first











Wrapping around entire box and securing it in the back with snail adhesive.










Finish box with a piece of 5/8 inch Old Olive grograin ribbon. (Which will be included in your kit)











Insert your business cards (or other small trinkets)












and... DISPLAY your business cards in your art work!
