Gable Box

I was very excited when asked if I would be on the design team for the Consultant's Wholesale club. This month our first box of "goodies" arrived and were to be halloween themed for the upcoming sale. If you see what you like, go to CWC and sign will NOT be disappointed!!

Instructions for the Gable Box:

Step 1: Score 11” side of cardstock at 1/2", 3 1/2", 5 3/4", and 8 3/4".

Step 2: Score the 8 1/2” side at 3" and 6 1/2".

Step 3: Cut each score line up to the intersecting score line to create flaps as shown.

Step 4: On one edge of the card stock, you’ll have 1/2” flaps. Cut off the two 1/2" flaps on the ends, leaving the center flap.

Step 5: Place Sticky Strip™ on the 1/2" flap. Be sure to place the adhesive strip on the front (stamped) side. Leave the liner on the adhesive.

Step 6: Place Sticky Strip™ on the other flaps as shown to create interior sections of the box. Leave the liner on the adhesive.

Step 7: Center punch over panel and push the cardstock all the way into the Wide Oval punch to create handles for the box.

Step 8: Use the corner rounder on the corners of the handles.

Step 9: Peel the liner from the 1/2" flap on the side of the box (mid section).
Fold the box into shape so that the ends meet the adhesive. If necessary, fold the flaps out of your way.

Step 10: Peel the liner from the side flaps and adhere them to the interior sides of the box for added stability.

Step 11: Remove the liner from the bottom flaps. Fold in the two smaller flaps and then adhere one of the longer flaps to the smaller flaps. I fold in the flap that’s on the side where the seam is so the front of the box will be seamless. Fold the remaining flap into place.

Step 12: Decorate the front of the box. Use the Crop-a-Dile™ to punch holes for the ribbon closure or just tie ribbon to the box.
