A Scor-Pal and Paper Smooches Gift Box

Hi!  It's Toni here with another fun Scor-Pal project.  This week the Scor-Pal team is hopping with the design team from Paper Smooches!!! Oh man, this is going to be fun and you will not want to miss one single photo!  Make sure you visit the Paper Smooches blog, as well as the Scor-Pal blog.  My project for this hop is an origami gift box.
For this project, you will need:
With the 8 3/4" side of the card stock against the top fence of your Scor-Pal, move the left hand edge of the card stock to the 1/8" groove.  Score your card stock at 3" and 6".
Rotate the card so that the 11 7/8" side of the card stock is up against the top fence of your Scor-Pal.  Score at 1 1/2" and 4 1/2".  Then score at 2 1/2" from the top of your Scor-Pal to the first horizontal score line.  Score again at 2 1/2" from the second horizontal score line to the bottom of the card stock.
Rotate the card stock 180 degrees and repeat previous step.
Insert your Scor-Mat into your Scor-Pal and place your card stock with the 11 7/8" side up.  On the 2 1/2" score line, cut down to the first horizontal score line.  Repeat in the next three corners.
Rotate your card stock so that the 8 3/4" side of the paper is aligned with the top fence.  On the first vertical score line, cut from 1 1/2" to 4 1/2".  Repeat for the next three cuts as shown by red lines in the photo.
Turn the card stock over and crease all of the score lines. 
Flip the card stock over and adhere Scor-Tape as shown. 
Remove backing on the Scor-Tape and adhere sides together, forming the base of the box.
Trim 1" tabs as shown below.
Flip base of box over and line trimmed 1" tabs with Scor-Tape as shown. 
Remove adhesive backing and adhere to the adjacent square panel, creating side closures.
Here is a view of the origami box with the side closures folded up.  Now your box is ready for embellishment. 
Take a peek at these fabulous Paper Smooches images from the new set called Retail Therapy that I used to embellish my origami box.  Paper Smooches has the most fun fonts and I couldn't resist this one.  I stamped my sentiment and then punched it out with a small circle punch.  I backed the sentiment with another larger circle and a rosette.  It needed just  a bit more, so I inked up the bow.  I stamped, colored and trimmed it out.  Finally, I placed a rhinestone in the center and hung it off my sentiment. 
Doesn't this just make you smile?  Here is one more photo to show you how the finished box looks as you open it up to reveal a little gift.  I'll be placing some stick on earrings in her for my daughter who just turned seven!
