PPA19 - Inspired Make Merry Box

Happy Monday!  Hope you enjoyed the blog hop this weekend, and I want to thank everyone for stopping by!

The Pals Paper Arts Challenge this week as an inspiration challenge.  You can hop on over to to the challenge link to view the source of inspiration, if you'd like!

I actually made this before the blog hop, but you'll recognize that Scallop Envelope die-cut as the same one I used for my 3x3 notecard box. It's put together a little differently though, using simply 4 Scallop Envelopes and a base square of cardstock inside to keep it nice and sturdy.  I'm not sure who the original creator was of the Scallop Envelope boxes, as I've seen this idea floating around for a while.

When you cut out the Scallop Envelope, you will have two side flaps, and one bottom flap.  To make the box with four envelopes, you will want to cut off the side flaps on two envelopes before adhering it all together.  A piece of cardstock approximately 3-1/4" square fits nicely inside. 

Side view:

The Pewter Jumbo Eyelets give a nice, finished look to where your ribbon "handle" is attached.  A Medium Cellophane Bag filled with chocolates is a great gift, but you could fit other goodies inside.  :)

  2. Cute project! Thanks for playing @ PPA!

  3. Perfect for the guys in my life. The Sleigh Bells ribbon is the perfect handle. The guys prayer breakfast (Sat.) would love these. I might have to fill it with venison jerky, though! Fancy chocolates are better appreciateed by the ladies. Thank you for sharing your creative idea. lorijane
