Love You Much Scallop Envelope box

At Leadership and Convention, I always like to take some 3D type items with me to swap with other demos.  I always come away with great ideas.  This year, for Leadership I made these scallop envelope boxes and filled them with a Ghiradelli Chocolate!  Yummy!  They were quite easy to do and nice for a little treat or table favor.  This one I used Pink Pirouette for the base scallop envelopes, then added a strip of Candy Lane DSP.  I stamped the scallop circle from Love You Much twice, ones in Chocolate Chip on Riding Hood Red and once on Very Vanilla with Riding Hood Red, then punched with the Scallop Circle and the 1 3/8 circle punches.  I tied the Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon around the box to hold it closed.

Without doing a step-by-step tutorial, here are a few basic instructions.

1.  Cut 2 Scallop Envelopes from cardstock.
2.  Score 1/2 inch from top existing score mark and 1/2 inch from bottom existing score mark.  Cut off both the bottom score marks you just made.
3.  Adhere the two envelope bottom flaps together with sticky strip and add tape to each side.  Remove side tapes one at a time and fold into box shape.  (Hint…hold the top and bottom together with one hand while you square and line up the sides with the other.)
4.  Fold the front scallop flap down into the inside of the box.  Fold the back scallop flap to the front.
5.   Decorate as desired.

Have fun!  Let me know if you make one of these…would love to see your creation!
