Step by Step
Take a sheet of check paper from the Burleigh Blue 12x12 paper pack. With the X Cut multi scoreboard extra place the sheet of paper pattern side down on line 6. Make sure you leave an equal distance each side of the elipse shapes and score both of the curved shapes. Repeat at the opposite end of the paper. You should now have two curved shapes either end of your paper.
Line up the centre of the 2 elipse shapes top and bottom along line 6 on the board and score this will be your box fold. At the other end of the curve top and bottom score to create the tab that will glue your box together and repeat the other side. Cut along the curved shapes top and bottom.
Score two lots of bow shapes with the largest and second largest elipse shapes on the multiscoreboard in Parkstone Pink and Burleigh Blue papers and cut out. Trim the pointed edges and stick together and add a pink blitter in the centre.
Create the top flap of the bag by scoring the largest elipse shape on burleigh blue paper continue the curve and then straight edges each side with a pencil and cut out. Ink edges of the flap and bows with a teal ink pad. Attach the flap and bows to the top of the box.
Adhere a pink paperchain across the box. Cut a tag shape 6 x 4.5 cm and personalise it with a letter from the Boofle urban stamps fabric alphabet stamped with teal ink on textured card and cut out and glue onto the tag.
Attach to the box and adhere blitters. Glue the tabs along the long edges of the box and fold in the curved side flaps to create the box shape.
