Show and Tell and Guest Designer

Are you ready for another great guest designer?!  Check out Holly!  She is so crafty!!!

Thank to Rebecca from Crafting Misfit for inviting me as a guest designer!

Since the holiday's are coming up, many of us like to give little gifts or baked goods to the people we love. I wanted to show you how to make a simple box that can be made in a flash and only uses one sheet of 12 x 12 paper!

I'm also offering some Blog Candy to a follower. Keep reading to see how you can win- Yeah!!
I decided to keep the box simple because the paper is so pretty and I just added a few flower rosettes cut from Flower Shoppe. I then wrap the box with a raffia bow and stamped a Thankful sentiment from Gettting Cricky's Fall-O-oween Stamps.
I found this box idea from the Scor Pal website, here's the original link Cookie Box to give credit to the desiger but here's my how to tutorial also.
1- 12 x12 sheet of cardstock.
Score at 3" and 9" then rotate paper and Score at 1", 3 1/2", 6 1/2" and 9".
Cut ,fold and tape . I leave the extra tabs long inside to give the box a little more support.
Voila....a simple box with endless gift possibilities! Here's a link to another box I've made before Sweet and Simple.
I'd like to offer some blog candy since it's my daughter's 5th birthday today! WooHoo! We're having her party at Chuck E. Cheese tonight...Yeah for my daughter....Bleeeeek for me!

  1. Give your daughter a big 'ol birthday hug for me! I remember some of the birthday parties I threw for my daughter (she's 37 now and due with her 2nd child in 6 weeks - where DOES the time go). Her favorite (other than yearly slumber parties) was the time I took her group of friends to a local hotel where they swam in the pool until they turned to prunes!

  2. Great box!!! I love how simple it is because the paper is wonderful. For a birthday party, I took my son who then turned 7, and 6 of his friends, to a golf mini golf:) so fun.

  3. great project. tfs. funnest birthday party was at one of those bouncy places.
