Magnolia Sitting Tilda with Teddybear Gift Box Tutorial

Good morning everyone and thank you for visiting today. As mentioned from the previous posts HERE and HERE, today is the tutorial of this gift box which measured 5" X 5 1/4".

Materials you need, some are optional:

Stamps - Sitting Tilda with Teddybear from Magnolia-licious
Sentiment - Inkadinkado
Cardstock - 6" x 12" (1 piece - for box base)
Some scraps for the back layer for the sentiment on cover (see yellow border punched piece from picture above)
Patterned paper -
Cover and back - Magnolia Sweet Rainbow Paper Pack - 5" x 4 3/4" (2 pieces)
Border - Magnolia Winner Takes It All - 4 3/4" x 1 1/4" (4 piece)
Embellishments (Optional) - Flower, ribbon, brads, pearl swirls, butterfly punch outs, pearls
Tools - Scor-Pal, Scor-Tape, Sizzix Big Shot, Martha Stewart border punch, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Scissors, Paper glue, Spellbinder die cutter (to cut out shape piece the for back layer for the sentiment - optional).

*****TO FORM THE BOX*****
With the 6" x 12" cardstock, short edge across the Scor-Pal on top, score @ 1/2", 5 1/2"

Turn the piece 90 degrees to have the long edge on top, score at 1/2", 1", 6 1/4" and 6"3/4"

After creasing all the score lines. On the long sides, cut slits on each score lines up to the point where they connect with the first score lines from the long side.

Cut off (remove) the small square pieces like the picture below

Turn over so the cover is facing the top. The picture below shows the left part of the cardstock piece is the back cover and the right part is the front cover when it is assembled.
Apply Scor-tape to each side edge of the back cover. Apply small pieces of Scor-tape to the little part (as picture below) to each small square side of the front cover.

Fold the front cover flip up, then adhere the corners to create this flip lid for closing. Here are the two pictures. On the second picture of this section, you can see a closer view on how to adhere it to form the flip lid.

This is what the cover flip looks like when it is assembled.

Next step is to adhere the left & right side edges together to form it into a box shape.

This box is basically completed and you can push the flip lid down to close this box.

I like to add some textures on the cover. The patterned paper is 5" x 4 3/4". However, the Cuttlebug Embossing Folder is smaller than this piece. Open up the embossing folder, with the long edge of patterned paper across the top, lay it inside the embossing folder. The side edges will stick out (but don't worry, it will get covered up by the punched borders later).

Put it through the Sizzix/die cut machine.

This is what the embossed patterned paper will look like. As you can see the top & bottom edges are flat since this patterned paper is bigger than the embossing folder.

Punch one side edge of each 4 3/4" x 1 1/4" piece with the Martha Stewart punch.

Adhere the borders to top & bottom edges of the back & front cover.

Here is the view of the finished back cover

You do the same piece on the front cover. Apply the Sitting Tilda with Teddybear image and sentiment on the cover, then add any embellishment as you wish. I hope you enjoy this tutorial and have fun trying it out. If there are any questions, you can add it on the comment section with your email address.

Thank you for stopping by and hope to share more projects with you soon :o)
