Triangle Box

This is a classic gift box. I learned how to make it years ago... forgot all about it... saw it last weekend... and fell in love with it all over again. That is what's so great about rubber stamping; the ideas are ENDLESS.

Kits for this project are available with all supplies needed (except adhesive) to create TEN boxes for just $10. When ordering these adorable boxes, be sure to ask for the TRIANGLE BOXES. Again, this is another project that goes beyond Christmas. It's perfect for teacher once school is back in session or gift to someone who's already given you the prefect gift.

And remember... when you place a Stampin' Up! order of $50 OR request $50 in Vritual Workshop Kits, you can pick any kit you like for FREE as my thank you.

Some of the things I like most about this box is the size. (Two can be made from only one sheet of 8.1/2 x 11.) And there is NO ADHESIVE holding the box together. Isn't that cool?! Saves us a bit in the tape department. wink. Well, let's get on with the instructions.

Triangle Box

Card Stock (one sheet of 8.1/2 x 11 and scraps of two other colors)
Ribbon (about 15")
12x12 Cutter and score tool
1/8" Hole Punch

My favorite way to decorate these boxes is to use the Stampin' Up! wheels on them. Wheels make projects super duper fast and easy. On this box, I used the "Snowflake" wheel. For the focal image, I used the stamp set "Holiday Blitz." This set is so perfect for gift giving because the images can be punched with any of the circle punches. Again, this makes for a fast project to put together.

1. Trim card stock to 4 x 10.
2. Wheel over entire card stock (one side.)
3. Score center at 5".
4. Pencil mark both ends at the center (2".)
5. Score from pencil mark to each side of scored center line. (see photo of how this will end up looking. I traced with a pencil over all of my scored areas so you can better see how the finished scoring will look.
6. Fold at center scored line, bringing outside scored areas together.
7. Using the Hole Punch, punch each side of box. To do this, bring the sides together and punch BOTH at the same time. (see photo)
8. Thread ribbon through all four punched holes.
9. Decorate as desired.

I also used the "Full of Life" stamp set and cut it out with my Coluzzle. You can see this in the photos as well. I then used the 3/4" Circle Punch to punch out little snowflakes from "Holiday Blitz."
