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.

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.

Instructions: To see a close up of this box click here. Inspiration and step by step pictures for this project comes from: Tattered Lace Issue 6 and top for box comes from here

A DOWNLOAD of the Treasure Box Template at: here

STEP 1: MAIN BOX Cut a 12” x 6 1/4 ” piece of cardstock and then score at 3”, 6”, and 9”. Cut eight pieces of decorative paper 2 7/8 inches x 6 inches and apply to each side of outside of and inside of the box. Stamp, color and die cut 4 Classic Petunia Bouquet vines and place on inside of main box as shown in picture. Stamp, color and die cut two classic petunia bouquet baskets, flowers, and hanging baskets for outside of box and place on outside of box as shown in picture.

STEP 2: DRAWERS Cut four squares of cardstock measuring 5.875” (5 7/8″) x 5.875” (5 7/8″). Score each of the squares at 1 1/2 ” on all four sides. Cut to the 1st score mark on two sides. Glue each drawer together.

Cut four pieces of decorative paper 2 3/4″ square for inside of each box and 32 pieces of decorative paper for inside and outside of drawers 2 3/4″ by 1 1/4″. Apply paper to inside and outside of drawers. Die cut 4 vines with white cardstock, one for each drawer with the Cut Mat Create 1B Die and place on drawers as shown in picture.

STEP 3: DRAWER PLACEMENT Lay your main box scored piece down flat and then align and glue one drawer to the very top edge of the right panel. Align and glue another drawer to the very bottom edge of the left panel. For the middle two drawers, you will want to use a glue that is temporarily repositionable. Position one drawer to the panel adjacent to the right top drawer just below the top drawer. Position the remaining drawer to the panel adjacent to the left bottom drawer just above the bottom drawer. Immediately close the panel after positioning to make sure the drawers are straight and positioned correctly so that the box will close. Reposition if necessary.

STEP 4: LID The lid has 2 parts. Cut 2 pieces of cardstock measuring 7 1/8” x 3.5”. Score each piece at 1 1/2” on the long side and 1” on the shorter side. Cut the long score line on the short side  down to the 1 1/2” score line. Then cut 1” in from the end along the 1 1/2″ score line to the 1” score line as shown. This little flap will be the connection between the two lid pieces. Now tuck the tab in and fold the long side of each piece in half. Place a small mark at the center of the top of the two folded pieces of cardstock. The mark should be placed with the shorter scored section with the tab at the bottom. Now you need to score from the center mark down to the end of the scored line on both sides. Unfold the two pieces and position them as shown with a tab at each end. Before gluing, you will want to use a decorative corner punch for each of the 4 corners. Line the corners up exactly and then use the punch on both sides. Now fold in the middle and use the corner punch for the other two corners. After punching the corners, fold along the scored lines to form the lid. Line up the corners exactly and glue them all together. Your tabs should be at opposite sides of the lid. Apply glue to the flaps and tuck them inside to attach them to the insides of the lid. Stamp, color and die cut four small and large classic petunias. Shape petunias and place one completed petunia on each of four sides of the lid.

FINAL PROJECT: Fold your box with drawers together. Your lid will fit over your box easily yet snugly. Decorate as shown in pictures. Apply Beautiful Bling Borders – Fancy Waves and Beautiful Bling Borders – Fancy That to outside of box as shown in picture.
