Splitcoast tutorial: Scoreboard Gift Box

This week's tutorial over on Splitcoast is a Scoreboard Gift Box! The base of the box is a generous 2-3/4" square, and the height is adjustable to the size of your gift! 

I have a huge backlog of stamps and dies and stencils that need to be unpackaged and loved and shared - this beautiful stamp set from RG Avenue was part of a prize package I won during the last Coffee Lovers Blog Hop back in ..... November? This beachy image was a perfect fit for the tall sides of my box, and she's loosely colored with Copics. By the way, my box is 6" tall, but with a 12" x 12" sheet of paper, you could have a height anywhere from 1/2" up to 9-1/4". It's a pretty versatile tutorial! Many thanks to Mary Deatherage for her always creative designs and hilarious videos.

Here's the topper and tag - this tag die is from Impression Obsession and it's a taller design: 

DIE868-Z Plaid Tag
I cut the full design out, then moved the cut piece down in the die until I had the right amount of space for the sentiment, then cut again. The stitch lines made it easy to line up straight in the die!

That's it! The box has some built-in strengtheners, and the ribbon ties through holes in the side of the lid for even more stability. Great design! 

By the way - this is the slot punch I have... but check Amazon for other alternatives.

Thanks for visiting me today! By the way, if you love making tutorials and videos and you have something you'd love to share with the Splitcoast community, please feel free to email me! I'm always looking for new project and new authors.

Thanks for stopping by!
