My Scallop Envelope Bigz Die Box

I've been offline for awhile now trying to help get my preschool classroom ready.
I haven't been near my craft table except to try to organize, only to make more of a mess. *sigh*

Anyways, I had this in my head all night long and finally got an hour to be able to put it together!
I don't know if it's already out there or not... I think it's a really nifty box and I hope you like it!
It's super easy to put together!

Let me know what you think!


Here's the Scallop Envelope after I ran it through the Big Shot:

You will need 4 of them.
It's best to use Scor-Pal tape to attach the tabs to each other, scallop side up. I have used snail adhesive but it doesn't hold the box closed and it will fall apart eventually.

It's easier if you bend the tabs down and attach fold to fold to get that perfect alignment.

All in a row! Just attach the end to the other end and you have a cube!

You can leave the panels flat like the picture above or you can attach the end tabs together and get a set of panels, two together, like the picture below.

Flatten to adhere the DSP 2-3/16" x 12"

Flatten the opposite direction to crease all sides of the DSP.

Turn over and fold in the bottom, one on top of the other. Tuck the last end under and it will hold nicely. I lifted each loose end and added double sided tape (glue dots work great) to each tab to secure them down. I did the same with the long tabs along the inside of the box. I don't think it's necessary, but I did it anyways... it looks nicer.

Decorate the front and add some ribbon...

Add a little treat inside...

Happy stampin'!
