I thought this would be a cute project to share... I haven't been able to get on in a few days since I've been busy with Vday plans...Hope everyone is enjoying the sites i've been stumbling upon!!! ~Val


  • Paper cutter with scoring blade
  • One 12"x12" piece of cardstock
  • Eight 3 3/4" squares of Patterned Paper A
  • One 3 7/8" square of Patterned Paper A
  • Eight 3 7/8" squares of Patterned Paper B
  • Adhesive
  • Eight Eyelets
  • Crop-a-dile™
  • Ribbon
  • Bone Folder


  1. Step 1

    Score 12" x 12" cardstock at 4" and 8".
  2. Step 2

    Turn cardstock 90 degrees and score at 4" and 8".
  3. Step 3

    Prefold all scores.
  4. Step 4

    Fold one corner square over to a center square to create a diagonal fold in the corner square.
  5. Step 5

    Add a diagonal fold to all four corner squares.
  6. Step 6

    Cut all 3 3/4" patterned paper squares in half diagonally.
  7. Step 7

    Tape the triangle shapes to the outer squares and tape the 3 7/8" paper squares in Pattern B to the scored squares of the box inside.

    The one 3 7/8" square of the Pattern A paper goes in the center of the box.

    (The inside of the box is the side that has the diagonal fold going in.)
  8. Step 8

    Flip cardstock and decorate the outside.

    There's no need to add patterned paper to the center panel as this will be the bottom.
  9. Step 9

    Punch a hole in each of the outer corners.
  10. Step 10

    Add an eyelet to each of the punched holes.
  11. Step 11

    Thread a 24" piece of ribbon or cord through the eyelets and tie to hold the box together.
  12. Step 12

    Finished box.
Here is the Video in case you all would like to see it done before your eyes!!! Its pretty simple to do and looks gorgeous!!!
