One Sheet Box/Bag


How cute is this little bag/box? It was so easy to make and only uses 1 sheet of 8 1/2x11 cardstock. What I like best about it is there is no cutting, only scoring. I used a sheet of cardstock from the SAB Delight In Life Simply Scrappin ' kit. I scored it on the short side at 2 1/2" and 6". Then I turned the sheet and scored it at 4 1/2 " and 6 1/2" on the long side. Next, you have to bring the horizontal fold to the vertical fold to create a diagonal crease on all four corners.That was the confusing part, but I figured it out! Then you can stamp on your cardstock and decorate as you wish, but since I used patterned cardstock I simply tied White organdy ribbon around it and added a sticker to the middle of it and put it up on dimensionals and closed the top of it using a square clip from the hodgepodge kit. It is the perfect size for some candy, or a stamp, or any small trinket to give as a gift. I'm going to fill mine with a little something- and you never know, it could be you that I give it to!!!
