Tutorial Thursday Stationery Box with CTMH Cut Above Cards and Tags

I had a lot of fun making this beautiful CTMH Bashful color stationery box with CTMH Cut Above cards and tags. I stamped the cards and tags.  I made the stationery box loosely following a tutorial on Splitcoasters.

1. Cut a piece of 12 x 12 inches piece of CTMH Bashful card stock. Score at 5 inches and 7 inches. Turn paper 90 degrees and score at 3 inches and 9 inches in the other direction.

2. Cut the sides to score lines. Fold these cut pieces into the center of the box and glue down for extra support. This becomes the bottom of the stationery box.

3. Cut 1 3/4 inches off each side of the two top panels only. Score the bottom panels at 1 inch and 11 inches.

4.Cut a piece of 8 1/2 inches x 4 1/4 inches of CTMH Bashful card stock. Score both short sides and one of the long sides at 1 1/4 inches. Trim the corners of this piece and apply glue to the scored sections. Fold up the top of the card box and attach this piece to the box to form the holder for the cards.

5. Cut a piece of 8 1/2 inches x 2 inches piece of CTMH Bashful card stock. Socre both short sides at 1/2 inch and 1 inch from each end. Apply glue along the outer score section area and attach to the front of the card holder.

6. For the top of the box cut a piece of CTMG Bashful card stock at 10 1/8 inches x 6 1/8 inches and score 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.

7. Cut gold foil paper 1/8 inches smaller than all sides of the box and box cover and glue into place. Cut CTMH Bashful glitter paper 1/4 inches smaller than all sides of the box and box cover and glue on top of the gold foil paper.

8. Stamp, die cut, and mold three sets of Heartfelt Creations Classic Roses. Die cut one set of Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose vines in gold foil. Arrange roses and vines on the top and side of the box top.
