STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:

Use a die-cutting machine and the parcel die (Perfect Parcel) to crop two pieces of Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper. TIP: If you are using paper that contains lines or images that have a specific direction, be sure to cut both pieces, side-by-side, so that it lines up properly when assembling the box. 

Assemble the box as follows: 

  1. Fold and burnish each scoreline with a Bone Folder!
  2. Add Tear & Tape Adhesive to the tabs (see photo).

  5. Assemble the bottom of the box by adhering the flaps with adhesive to the adjacent flap (see photo).  After adhering, gently push down on the center until the pieces somewhat “snap” into place and form the box bottom.
