Paper Pumpkin: Easy Pining for Plaid 2, 4, 6, 8 Box & Card

Today I'm sharing two more Pining for Plaid, October Paper Pumpkin Alternative projects...a card and 2468 box.

Paper Pumpkin Pining For Plaid projects shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #rubberstamping #paperpumpkin #piningforplaid #christmas

The 2,4,6,8 box was the first box I learned how to make when I started crafting. It uses a half a sheet of cardstock and the card bases from the Pining For Plaid Paper Pumpkin kit are perfect!  The card is a quick & cute card that uses the Everyday Label Punch.  Learn how... 

Paper Pumpkin Pining For Plaid projects shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping  #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #rubberstamping #paperpumpkin #piningforplaid #christmas

Pining for Plaid Card

  1. Trim down an envelope (from kit) to 5-1/2" x 3-3/4".  Adhere to folded 4-1/4" x 11" Old Olive cardbase
  2. Stamp greeting on scrap of white with black ink and cut with Everyday Label Punch.  Stamp greeting again on 3" x 1/4" piece of Old Olive (only the word "Christmas".  Use scissors to "banner shape" ends.  Adhere over white label with Stampin' Dimensions. The adhere to a Basic Black Everyday Label shape with Stampin' Dimensionals (turned in the opposite direction)

2, 4, 6, 8 Box

  1. Important:  before scoring a card base from the kit, on the inside of the card, write x's along the score line.  You will not be folding on that line and the x's will be a good reminder.  (as shown below)
  2. Score card base at 2", 4", 6" & 8".  Turn and score at 2".  Fold on all scored lines with the exception of the x'd line.
  3. Use a scissors to cut along the four score lines from the bottom edge up to the 2" score line (as shown below). NOTE:  don't cut on the x'd out score line.  Also - cut away the left small rectangle piece (as shown below)
  4. Add tear & tape to 1/2" left edge and first lower left bottom panel.   Remove the backing.
  5. Fold box in half to adhere the taped edge to the other side of the box.
  6. Make into a box shape and fold bottom panels inward.  The tape panel folds second to last.  The last one will adhere to it.  May need to put flat on a table and press with your fingers or bone folder to get a good seal. 
  7. Fill box before proceeding
  8. Pinch sides together and use a 1/8" hole punch to create holes.  Lace Silver Ribbon through holes, Mini Ornament & tag (1/2" x 2-1/2"), tie on a bow.  Tuck Green Sprig under the ribbon.

2-4-6-8 Box
