Scallop Envelope Box
by Jane Matsumoto
Create a darling box with four scallop edge envelopes.
- Four 5" x 5 1/2" pieces of cardstock or patterned paper
- One 2 3/16" x 12" strip of patterned paper
- Scallop Envelope Bigz Die (Stampin’ Up®)
- Big Shot™, or other die cut machine
- Additional cardstock or patterned paper
Cut your four 5" x 5 1/2" pieces of cardstock with the Bigz Scallop Envelope Die and Big Shot.
Crease all scored lines.
Add Scor-Tape™ along one of the side tabs of each die cut.
Adhere one die cut to the next.
Lay the project flat.
You can adhere the inside tabs to the panels, but this may make creasing the box after the next step more difficult.
Adhere the patterned paper to the die cut strip.
Start on one end, approximately 1 1/4” from the edge (creasing as you go). You will have 1 1/4” of the patterned paper sticking out past the other end.
Put the last two tabs together and then adhere the rest of the patterned paper.
After putting the box together, start adhering patterned paper on one end and wrap all the way around (creasing as you go). Finish on the same panel you started with, but expect a small gap. The 12” of patterned paper will not cover the entire front.
Tuck the bottom flaps (not scalloped) over each other and tuck the bottom edge of the last flap into the box.
Lift each flap and adhere using either double-sided tape or glue dots.
Decorate the front as desired.
