Scallop Envelop Box Gift Set

Making gift boxes with the Scallop Envelope Die is easy once you do the first one, and see how it all comes together. I hope the following pictures and instructions help you to see how I put it together.

By cutting two Big Die Scallop Envelopes, an extra strip of 1 1/2" x 11" cardstock to go around the sides and bottom, you have created a really cute gift box that holds your selection of 3 x 3 cards.
To put the box together first you cut your two envelopes. Place sticky strip along one of the bottom flaps and adhere the two flaps together. Now you have a partial box with no sides. Take your strip of cardstock and place it evenly around the bottom and sides. I placed sticky strip on the bottom of the box and the two small side flaps on each envelope and folded the small strip of cardstock over the sides.
Now you have your box, and all that is left to do is to decorate it. I used coordinating cardstock and Designer Series paper for both the box, the cards, and envelopes.
To make the box I used the following:
Cardstock: Rich Razzleberry #115216, Crushed Curry #115319
Designer Series Paper: Razzleberry Lemonade #115675
Ribbon: Dusty Durango Polka Dot Grosgrain #115609
Embellishment: Flower Brad #112579
Big Shot Machine #113449, Scallop Envelop Bigz Die #113462
Accessories: Sticky Strip #104294
For the 3 x 3 cards:

Designer Series Paper: Razzleberry Lemonade #115675
Ribbon: Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot #115613, Dusty Durango Polka Dot #115609, Crushed Curry Polka Dot #115614

Very cool. Bet these go over well at craft fairs and work gift exchanges besides all the usual uses.
