Project Instructions

Box Base:

Trim two 6”x6” squares of double-sided cardstock. Score square 2″ in from all the edges.

Fold along all the score lines.

Score on the diagonals from corner to corner.

Fold the corners in on themselves to form the box.

Open the box back up and add adhesive in the corners. Fold box back up and press the folds to secure.

Box Top:

Trim two 4″x4” squares of double-sided cardstock. Score each side at just under an 1″ on all sides and then again on both diagonals. Fold in the same manner as the box bottom until the top is formed.

Fold the corners in on themselves to form the box.

Open the box back up and add adhesive in the corners. Fold box back up and press the folds to secure.  

Trim two 12x 1/2″ strip of scalloped paper and add it as embellishment around the bottom of each box top. Trim off any excess.

Trim two 1/8”x12” strips of white cardstock. Add as embellishment around the top of the scallop strip as detailed above. Trim off any excess.

Punch four large butterflies per box top (total of eight for the two boxes) out of white cardstock.

Layer the first butterfly on the box top. Then with adhesive just applied at the body (center) of the butterfly, layer the remaining three directly on top of the first.

Once dried, fluff up the butterflies so it resembles a flower.

Tips

For a sturdy box, use thicker paper such as cardstock and fold using a score tool to make professional sharp edges.
