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...

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.
