  • Paper trimmer
  • Scoring tool
  • Ruler
  • Pen or pencil
  • Scissors
  • Strong adhesive (SU! Tear and Tape and Glue Arts GlueGlider Pro used here)
  • Other supplies as needed to complete the project (SU! products used here: Love Sparkles stamp set, Watermelon Wonder and Mint Macaron ribbon, Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaroon and Basic Black ink, Pop of Pink patterned paper and Silver Glimmer Paper)
  • Items to fill the box: nail polish, a mini nail file, toe separators, nail polish remover pads, etc., or items in another theme

Step-by-Step

  1. Step 1

    Trim a piece of cardstock to 8” x 11”. With the 8” side at the top of your scoring tool, score at 1 1/2” and 6 1/2”.

  2. Step 2

    Rotate the paper 90 degrees so that the 11” side is at the top of your scoring tool. Score at 1”, 2 1/2”, 6 1/2”, and 8”.

  3. Step 3

    Trim a piece of cardstock to 1 1/2” x 5”. With the 5” side at the top of your scoring tool, score at 1 1/2”, 2 1/2”, and 3 1/2”.

  4. Step 4

    Fold and burnish all score lines. Cut all score lines along both 11” sides up to the intersecting score line to create tabs.

  5. Step 5

    Cut the square tabs approximately in half.

    TIP:
    Trim small notches on the sides of these tabs to help the box go together more easily.

  6. Step 6

    With the smallest flap toward the bottom of your work surface, measure up 1” from the bottom of the largest flap and make a mark toward the outside edge of the flap.

  7. Step 7

    Using a ruler, draw a diagonal line from the 1” mark up to the inside top corner of the flap.

  8. Cut along this line to remove a triangle shape. Repeat on the opposite side.

  9. Step 8

    Place adhesive on the back sides of all of the small tabs. Refer to the photo for placement.

  10. Step 9

    Assemble the lower part of the box.

  11. Assemble the top part of the box.

  12. Step 10

    Fold the 1 1/2”x 5” piece of cardstock so that it resembles a mountain shape.

  13. Apply adhesive to the bottom of the entire piece of cardstock.

  14. Step 11

    Adhere the mountain shape together to create a divider.

  15. Place the divider inside the box, keeping the divider as far to the left side as possible.

  16. Step 12

    Decorate the box as desired. This patterned paper was cut to 8” x 2”.

  17. Fill the box with nail polish, a mini nail file, toe separators and nail polish remover pads, found at pharmacies, dollar stores, department stores, or even online.

  18. Step 13

    Complete the project.
