Last night I decided to try making something completely different for today’s post. I bought a Martha Stewart Scoring Board not too long ago. I’ve been using it some for making the score lines for my cards, but hadn’t done anything else with it. Last night I looked through the project idea booklet that came with it and decided to try making a gift box.

The directions in the booklet were really easy to follow, except for one thing. The booklet said to “cut slits on all four sides” but the way I pictured that, that would completely cut out the corner pieces so there wouldn’t be anything to form the corners of the box. Going by the sketches in the booklet, I felt that the directions should have said “cut slits on all four corners”. Anyway, I figured it out. Another thing that helped make this project go so quickly and easily was that the paper I chose was already the 8″ x 8″ size suggested in the directions.

The finished size of the box is 4″ square by 2″ tall. I think it would be pretty simple to make boxes of other sizes by adjusting the paper size and scoring lines.

Oh, one modification I did was to cut down the lid of the box so that some of the box bottom would show. I scored the 8″ x 8″ paper for the lid as per the directions, then cut it down to about 6.5″ square before cutting the corners and assembling it.

As a finishing touch, I added a ribbon bow and a tag. And here it is. Sorry the photo is so dark.
