Collapsible Box

How cool is this box!!! My friend, Ann found the pattern for a really easy box that goes together fast and can collapse to store! Perfect size for gift card or small gift. You can get two of them out of one 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of CS.

For decoration, I used a piece of Super Adhesive Sheet from Sparkle N Sprinkle, placed it on white CS, then used a Spellbinder Die to cut it out.  The CS I used was a little too heavy and it didn't cut out all the beautiful little pieces - so I went with it!  It made it all raised up at least - so I covered it with SNS's Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter and then cut a plan one out of white CS to layer on top.  Finished it off with a velvet brad that I had laying around and some skinny ric-rac from May Arts and VOILA!

Here's the box semi-flattened.  
It's only taped together on the sides - the ric-rac holds the bottom and top together!

Here's a close-up.

Want to try it???  Here are the measurements.

For one box:
one 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of CS
Score with the 8 1/2" side on the left at 1" and 4 1/2"
Turn and score at 1"  -  4"  -  5"  and 8"
Clip the two corner sections off the "short" side
Cut down from the 5 1/2" side to the score lines to create your box.
Tape only the side flap.
Use a craft knife and cut a slit a little wider than the ribbon you'll use 
in the center of each of the front and back panels - top and bottom
Thread the ribbon thru and you're done!
