scalloped goodie box

Hello and happy Thursday! Have you all had a chance to check out the tutorials over at Splitcoaststampers? I have tried out a couple and loved the milk carton boxes I did for a stamp camp back in February - so today I give you the 5-in-1 template box which uses the 5-in-1 envelope template from Stampin' Up! Even if you don't own the template, you can use the sketch to make your own template. I have this cutie sitting on my shelf in the office and right now it's holding *naked* doll head clothespins that I use to store my ribbon on. Just a cute little storage box to liven up my desk. The box in the tutorial has the ribbon wrapped and tied over the entire box, but since I wanted to be able to take the lid off without undoing the ribbon I just placed the ribbon over the lid and tucked it under the sides with mini glue dots. I think I may do the ribbon over again when I get my chocolate wide grosgrain because I think the narrow ribbon gets a little lost on the large lid. Oh, another thing I did differently is I used chocolate chip cardstock for the bottom of the box and then wrapped the designer series paper around the edges of it. I just wanted the box to be a bit more sturdy than it would have been using the designer paper.

Thanks for stopping by today - see you back soon!

Details -
paper: afternoon tea dsp, chocolate chip cardstock (bottom of the box)
accessories: 5-in-1 envelope template, chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon, mini glue dots
