Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea
Today's idea is a little surprise box. I saw this little box tutorial at
Dawn has provided all the measurements and a video of how to put it together.
Here is the little finished box. It's made from one piece of 71/2x10 Card stock
scored and folded. And a belly band from an 11x1 inch piece.

Here's the surprise! Is this a cute little gift box or what?
The card stock for this box is Graphic 45 Play times/Pastimes Collection, Hopscotch,
two sided paper. Two sided paper is great for this project because it decorates
the inside as well. A gift card or small gift fits perfectly into this tiny treasure.
The roses were made with Crepe Paper from Melissa Frances and the Die-Namics Large Rolled Rose die. The leaves are Prima.

I made this one for a wedding gift. Paper is white on white from my stash.
The Heart is made from a Martha Stewart border punch. The flower on top is
made from lace that I just gathered in three sizes and hot glued to the box.
The pearl stems are from the bridal dept at the craft stores. The rings from the dollar store.

View from the top of the box.
This little box is so unique, and goes together in about 15 minutes and is fun to decorate.
Please remember, the cutting and scoring is the important part in any project going together
perfectly. Also, anything glued to the top for decoration can only be glued to the
belly band.
Hope you have a chance to make a little surprise box for the many gift giving
occasions where you need to give a small gift.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a wonderful Monday.  Until later.....
