A Gift Box

I went up to Ruskin today to Sparkle n Sprinkle and was taking George some Amish Friendship Bread that I made. He helped fix my car last week when it wouldn't start to come home. Anyway, I didn't want to just give him the foil wrapped bread, so I quick made this box for it.
I used the Scor-Pal, and it was so easy! I used a 12 x 12 piece of Vanilla for the base and scored it at 3 1/2 & 8 1/2, then turned it and scored the same lines again, cut the tabs on the sides and used double sided tape to adhere the corner flaps. For the top, I used some retired Choc Chip DSP and cut it to 11 x 11 (becuase I didn't want it to reach to the bottom of the base). When I scored the top I moved the paper in about 1/16" of an inch and scored again on the 3 1/2" line and turned it and did the same on all four sides. Cut the tabs and stuck it together.
For the pelican (that is from the set I designed) I embossed him with Carmel EP on vanilla, layered it on Choc Chip, then on a Stardreams cardstock. The acrylic was stamped on the top and embossed with Yellow Tart and mounted on a piece of the Stardreams cardstock, adhered by the red-liner tape and sprinkled with Copper glitter.
Hope you all have a great weekend!!

This looks great,Jill! I'm sure he loved the bread, too. ;0) Now I can make boxes, too, since you sent me the DVD about the Multi Board and the Enveloper. (I went ahead and caved - bought myself the Enveloper, too...Thanks again Jill!)
