Self-Closing Box

I love a cute little box to add to a customer's order as a thank you.  But I don't love a box that takes a zillion hours to make!  I found this adorable (and easy!) self-closing box on another demonstrator's blog (  Head over there and search "self-closing box" to get the pattern.  

I used the Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper for the box.  The bright colors were the perfect way to add a lot of pop, without a lot of extra work.  I love how Designer Series Paper can do that to a project!  This paper is retiring at the end of May, so snatch some up if you haven't already!

The straight folds are super easy, especially on the Simply Scored tool.  The diagonal folds are done by hand with a bone folder.  Then you just fold, use Tear & Tape to seal the bottom and sides, and fill it with some goodies.  There's chocolate in mine, of course!  Wrapped in Designer Series Paper!

If you ordered from my Spring Stamp-A-Stack you will find one of these boxes (and the pattern!) in your bag.  Enjoy!
