Instructions: Box Base: Score the 12 inches by 12 inches piece of black cardstock at 5 inches and 7 inches. Turn paper 90 degrees and score at 3 inches and 9 inches in the other direction. Cut sides to score lines. Fold these cut pieces into the center and glue down for extra support. This makes the base of the card box. Cut 1 3/4 inches off each side of the top panels only. Socre the bottom two panels at 1 inch and 11 inches. Score both short sides and one of the long sides of the 8 1/2 inches x 4 1/4 inches piece of cardstock at 1 1/4 inches. Trim the corners and apply glue to scored sections. Fold up the top of the card box and attach this piece of the box to form a holder for the cards. Score the 5 1/2 inches by 2 inches and the 4 1/2 inches by 2 inches pieces of cardstock at 1/2 inch and 1 inch from each end. Apply glue along the score lines of the outer sections and to one of the inner sections of these pieces. Attach the pockets to the front of the card holder. Cover the base of the box with Festive Holly Paper cutting each piece 1/8 inch smaller than the box size section. Measure the area to be covered because score lines and glue may result in smaller variations of the size of patterned paper needed.

Box Cover: Score the 10 1/8 inches x 6 1/8 inches piece of cardstock at 2 inches on all sides. Cut the vertical score line up to the horizontal score line and trim the corners. Fold the ends up to form the lid and glue in place.Glue two 6 inches x 1 3/4 inches and 2 inches x 1 3/4 inches pieces of Festive Holly Paper to the box cover and make one sparkling poinsettia by stamping image with Versamark and use gold embossing powder on Stampin’ Up Real Red cardstock. Stamp two leaves with Versamark and use gold embossing powder. Shape flower and leaves according to directions on instructional video. Using glue apply prills in the center of flower. Apply flower with glue to the center front of the box cover.

Cards: Cut out three small cards from the Festive Holly paper. Cut out a medallion using Stampin’ Up Real Red cardstock. Glue as indicated in picture to form a small pocket to fit small gift cards. Die cut three tags from the Festive Holly paper and decorate with ribbon, twine, bell and red charms. Cut out two small tags from the Festive Holly paper and mount on card stock 1/4 inch by 1/4 inch larger than the small tag. Glue in place. Add ribbon, twine, charms to the top of the two cards.Cut three 4 inches by 5 1/4 inches images from the Festive Holly cardstock. Glue to 4 1/4 inches x 5 1/2 inches cardstock and embellish the card fronts with one poinsettia that is stamp and die cut with Stampin’ Up real read cardstock and gold embossing ink. Stamp, color and die cut one holly twig and attach under the poinsettia on one of the card fronts. On a second card front die cut two leaves and two poinsettias that have been stamped with gold embossing ink. Add prills to the center of the flowers. On the third card add an image and add greeting with a small green bow.

    Hi Pamela, I am having a difficult time trying to understand the directions fully. Do you have a visual or diagram as to how the pieces go together? For the 12×12, after the second set of score marks (at the 3 and 9) you say to cut sides to score lines, but it isn’t clear which side to make the cuts on. I am usually very good at seeing how the project comes together, but I am not seeing how this is put together. Can you help?

    I have received a request for additional pictures or a video of how to make the stationery box. My inspiration came from the tutorial and video at: Here is the link to the printable instructions http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/stationerybox/#?printable=true

    Video Part One https://youtu.be/DnMaAvARpTs and here is part 2 https://youtu.be/t3xxrYttgDo
    I used a base cardstock and then covered each section of the box in designer paper. The video shows just using designer paper and no cardstock which I felt was not sturdy enough. I changed the contents in inside cover from what was described in the video.Please let me know if you find this helpful!
