You asked for it!

Hi everyone!  Well, you have asked for the template to the Ornament Wish Box and you shall receive!  : )    For this project, I used my Score-Pal which made this very simple to do.  This is my first "tutorial" so please bear with me!

To start, cut your paper to 3" x 6".  Using your score tool, score on the short side at 1" and 2".  Turn the paper around and score on the long side at 1", 2", 3.5", and 4.4".  In the picture above, I have outlined in red the areas that your should cut with your scissors.  For the area that looks like an ' I ' , I just found the center and cut it in half.   The finished cut template should look like the picture below.

You can see that I have marked with an x where you use your hole punch to make room for the ribbon to hang.  Make it as small or large as you feel you need it.  You might even find something else clever to use as a hanging tool for this!  

Fold along your score lines to begin the box making.  Tape the outside of the short flaps to adhere to the inside of the box.  Then tape the remaining large flap on the inside to adhere to the rest of the box.   The finished box is below.  You can used some good heavy DP to make the box or use plain CS and decorate it with dp and embellishments when you are finished.  You can also use whatever you like for closure of this box (I used Velcro) as well as decorating the top flap.  For this sample, I used my Threading Water punch to make the edge, but in my previous post I used a circle punch cut out for the front.  

I do hope this helps you all, but if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email me and I will answer whatever questions you may have.  I also realized as I was typing this post that I should have taken more pictures of where to tape and such, so I hope my explanation sufficed!   Thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget to enter for your chance to win some free money here!!!
