Melon mambo gift box

Melon mambo gift box 1  melon mambo box 2

Good morning and happy sunday everyone.  I hope you are having a lovely weekend.

Todays project is a lovely bright project to cheer up these dark winter days.  I have used a lot of dark and subtle colours lately and i fancied something with a bit of colour and what better than a splash of the gorgeous melon mambo.  I used it with the free sale-a-bration dsp irresistibly yours which looks plain but it actually has a lovely glossy white pattern on it.  It comes in 6 designs and you get two sheets of each…how fabulous.

The finished box is 3″ x3″ x1 1/2″ so its a good size box.

For the base cut your cardstock to 6″ x 6″ (15.2cm x 15.2cm) and score at 1 1/2″ (3.8cm) on all four sides then cut up each score line to make the tabs.

For the lid cut your dsp or cardstock to 5″ x 5″  (12.7cm x 12.7cm)  and score at 1″ (2.5cm) on all four sides then cut up each score line again to make the tabs.  Adhere tabs on base and lid and there you have your box.

Enjoy the project and the rest of your weekend
