A bonus tutorial for making this little box that I made with card stock and covered with Stampin Up Wildflower Fields Designer Series paper. Take one piece of card stock and cut to 4 inches by 10 1/4 inches. On the long side score the card stock as 1 1/4 inches, 4 1/2 inches, 5 3/4 inches and 9 inches. On the short side score at 1 1/4 inches and 2 3/4 inches. See pictures  for proper cutting and putting the box together. What do you think?
