Sweetheart Box Tutorial ~ Part 2 ~

The first piece of cardstock will be cut at 4 7/8 x 4 7/8
Score all 4 sides at 15/16
Score each corner square diagonally (from the corner score lines to the actual corner of the cardstock)
The second piece of cardstock will be cut at 8 1/2 x 3 1/4
Score lenghwise at 1/2, 3 1/2, 4 1/2 and 7 1/2
It will look like the above photo
Take your first piece of cardstock and fold the two sides inward. Now flip over and adhere two strips of double-sided tape to the top and bottom. Position the longer cardstock with the 1/2 inch score line to the top (this will be the flap) and adhere the first piece to it, as shown. The score lines MUST line up on these two pieces for the box to function properly. Open the two sides and and adhere a tiny strip of double-sided tape to the 4 INSIDE (triangle shaped) corners.
