So...I promised directions to the Turtle boxy thing ages ago...so sorry it has taken this long! Here you are, darling peeps!
Step 1: Cut a piece of cardstock to 5 1/2" x 11"
Step 2: Score your cardstock (on the 11" side) at 2", 5 3/4", and 7 3/4".
Step 3: Using a medium corner rounder, create a scalloped edge on the short side where you started scoring from. (Does that make any sense at all???)
Step 4: Stamp your box base as desired, then fold along all score lines. I used my bone folder to make the folds good and crisp.
Step 5: Cut a 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" panel for your main image. Stamp and embellish as desired. Then adhere top half to your scalloped edge, about 1" down from the fold.
Step 5: Adhere magnets (I used Basic Grey small ones here) to the back of your main image panel and onto the front of the box.
*Tip: To get the magnets to match up, place the positive and negative magnets together. Remove backing from adhesive side of one magnet, and attach to one side. The remove the backing from the other magnet (the back should be facing you), then fold the box closed. The magnet will adhere exactly where it needs to be to match up with its partner!Step 6: Pinch the top right corner of the box together and punch a hole with any circle hole punch. I used the big side of my Cropadile. Step 7: Thread about 12" of ribbon, twine, or anything else you want through both sides of the hole. I tied a knot and left some loose ribbon so I can tie it onto something else.
Now since it says Handmade, I guess I have to put something handmade in it now, huh??? I hope you guys enjoyed this, and if you make one, link me up here so I can see it!! Have a great day!
