Chocolate and Candles...

Hiya Everyone
Back again with a little tutorial

I made this cute little gift which I wanted for my kiddies to give to their Teachers
I needed to jot down instructions so I remembered how to make more LOOOOOL
So I thought I would share it with you too :)

 I made this using the Big Score, what an AMAZING gadget that board is, I adore the boxer board that has been put into it, I don't think I will ever use another score board again, you can get yours over in the Crafter's Companion Shop
 Take an A3 sized piece of Centura Pearl and score it on the long side at 1",  4 1/2", 5 1/2 " , 9" , and 10 1/2 
Move it along slightly so it lines up with any inch number at the top of your big score and score it at 1 inch away from your last score line, 1 1/2 inch and then 1 inch - Trim away the excess card
 Turn the Card and score at 1", 7 1/2" , and 8 1/2" - Trim away the excess card
 Trim your edges into little tabs as shown, and crease all the score lines
 I then cut an apearture using a steel ruler and craft knife and lined it with some acetate
 Glue one end of your box together and the sides where the two meet, insert your goodies and glue together the other end of your box

Cut a strip of A3 card length wise, roughly about 2 inches wide and score this at 3 inches, 4 inches and 9 1/8 inches, move the card along so it lines up with any inch line at the top and score 1 inch from the last score line and then score at 3 inches, so it looks as shown - trim away excess 
 Fold the score lines and wrap around your box, they overlap at the back so it hides and glue marks
Decorate as you choose :)
I used some paper from the Bebunni Christmas pad and some Die'sire snowflake dies, the sentiment is from the sentimentals range

I hope you like it
Do pop by and share any you may make
Thanks for popping by
