Happy Friday! A friend needed a few little boxes to put on the girls desks with chocolates inside and asked if I could come up with a few for her. That is an easy request so I got to work and came up with these. I used the bloom in the digital set Heart Abloom as I can enlarge it to fit the boxes.
The measurements for this box are easy.
The bottom: cut a piece of cardstock 4 3/4 x 4 3/4 inches. Score at 1 inch on all sides. Fold in the edges and adhere to form base.
The top: cut a piece of cardstock 4 7/8 x 4 7/8 (now I might have that last part wrong. Basically two little tick marks from the 3/4 mark if the 7/8 isn't the correct conversion) Score at 1 inch on all sides and adhere to form the top.
The belly band I took a piece of maroon cardstock 1 inch thick and wrapped around the box and adhered together in the middle. The bloom covers the over lay so no need to worry about that.
Colored the bloom with various Copic markers and then added to the belly band. A few layers to the lid with some swiss dots for texture and voila. She can add whatever she needs to at this point but I think she will keep them as is since its a surprise. :-)
