There are other tutorials around but I decided to go from scratch and see how it turned out :)
Core'dinations Card Stock - Core Amour Sable and Onyx and Signature Series (matches Graphic 45)
Tools - Scor-Pal and Scor-Mat
Adhesive - Scor-Tape
Ribbon - Really Reasonable Ribbon
Brad - Heidi Grace
For the base of the box I started with an 11" square of card stock. Scored at 3", made a 1/4 turn, scored again at 3" and repeated until all 4 sides were scored.
I burnished all scored lines and then, as shown in the photo, I cut up one scored line to the intersection on all four sides to make the flaps that become the corners on the box.
I then turned the base over and added Scor-Tape to all 4 flaps.
Core Amour Sable and Onyx pad that I had sanded down and cut to fit the sides of the box. Doing this before forming the box is a lot easier than trying to add it once the box is adhered.
I removed the protective top to the Scor-Tape and formed the box, using my bone folder on the inside to create crisp corners.
The lid is made the same way but this time the card stock is 7 1/4" square and you score at 1" on all four sides.
To make the insert to hold the cupcakes/treat you simply cut 2 pieces of card stock to measure 5" by 3". Cut a 1 1/2" deep slit at the 2 1/2" mark on the 5" side on each piece so they will interlock to form the 4 partitions.
To create the base part of the cupcake to top the box you need to make rosettes of different sizes. All are scored at 1/4" along the long side and all strips are 12" long. The widths of each strip are 3/4", 1", 1 1/4" and 1 1/2"
To create the top part of the cupcake make more rosettes, this time with strip widths of 1 1/4", 1", 3/4" and 1/2". Top the smallest one with a decorative brad/embellishment.
Decorate the box further if you wish, I simply added a pleated sheer ribbon to the sides of the lid. I finished the set with a simple gatefold card in coordinating papers.
And finally a few choice cupcakes makes for the perfect gift.
