Ever need a small piece of note paper and had to go scrounging about for one? This cute little box will solve that problem. I created this note box to hold notepads and loose paper on my husband’s desk at work. When making this box pick out a base cardstock color and a printed paper. Night of Navy makes a nice masculine base. So I choose it for my base cardstock. Next I picked a print from the Moroccan Designer Series Paper.
Cut the Night of Navy cardstock as following:
- 5.25″ by 4″ – 1 piece
- 6″ by 9″ – 1 piece
- 2″ by 4″ – 1 piece
Next cut one piece of Print paper to 3.75″ by 3″. In order to assemble your note box you will need to score and trim your two larger base pieces. As shown above you score at 1/2″ up from the bottom. Then turn your cardstock and score at 1/2″, 2 1/2″, 6 1/2″, and 8 1/2″. Next make a tick mark at 3 1/4″ up from the bottom on each side. Now you have the marks you need to trim the sides at the top as shown. Trim from the 3 1/4″ mark to the 2 1/2″ score line on each side. Cut off the 2 square on the bottom right and left. Snip a triangle wedge away from the sides at the bottom and along the bottom at each vertical score line. Your scored and trimmed cardstock base will look like this:
Note Box Assembly
Now that you have your pieces cut, glue the center flap at the bottom of the back piece to the 4″ side of the 2″ by 4″ section of the front. Now you should glue your printed paper to the center of the front piece. Then fold up the front and attach the side flaps.
After I had the box assembled, I wrapped the box with a piece of Burlap Ribbon. Then I punched out a piece of Night of Navy cardstock using the new Pretty Label punch. In order to make the sentiment piece, I first die cut a stitched circle from Whisper White cardstock. Stamping the Sentiment, ‘Remember to Do’ , in Night of Navy ink finished the decorations.
The only thing left to do is fill it with some note paper or small note pads.
