Can you believe that we are in the middle of March already? I can't believe it either! This month the Scor-Pal More Than One Score challenge is an Anything Goes challenge. If you pop over to the Scor-Pal blog, you will see a fun and easy box tutorial by Lois.
I made another wine box. Seriously, I will never again buy a wine bag! I had a few questions about how to make this project. The good news is that it isn't really that hard.
For this project, you will need:
- One 11" x 12" piece of card stock
- Six 1 1/4" x 7 3/4" pieces of card stock
- Six 1 1/8" x 7 5/8" pieces of patterned paper
- Paper snips
- Hole punch
- Embellishments as desired
Place the 11" x 12" piece of card stock with the 12" side along the fence of the Scor-Pal. Score at 2" and 10".
Rotate 90 degrees. With your 11" side along the fence of the Scor-Pal, score at 1 3/4", 3 1/2", 5 1/4", 7", 8 3/4" and 10 1/2'".
With a pencil, mark at 7/8", 2 5/8", 4 3/8", 6 1/8", 7 7/8" and 9 5/8".
Fold and burnish all of the score lines.
Trim off both 1/4" x 2" rectangles seen here.
Trim from the top down and from the bottom up 2" to the score line. This creates 6 tabs on the top and 6 tabs on the bottom.
With Scor-Tape, adhere 6 strips of 1 1/8" x 7 5/8" designer paper to 6 strips of 1 1/4" x 7 3/4" strips of card stock.
With more Scor-Tape, adhere one strip to each scored panel on the box.
Use the pencil mark on the top 6 tabs as a guide to cut down from the center to each edge of the tab, creating triangle shaped tabs.
Punch a 1/4" hole in the center of each triangle tab.
Line the 1/4" x 8" tab with Scor-Tape.
Remove the adhesive backing and adhere tab to the inside of the opposite end panel, forming a hexagon shaped tube.
Line 5 of the bottom tabs with Scor-Tape.
Place bottle in tube at this time to support the shape of the box as you secure the bottoms tabs. Fold the tab with no Scor-Tape in first. Then, remove adhesive backing and stick down the rest of the tabs in clockwise fashion.
Thread ribbon through the punched holes in the triangle tabs and tie a bow.
Embellish the finished wine bottle box as desired.
I stamped a simple tag with some silver cording to hand around the neck of the bottle. It can personalized for the occasion or for the recipient. The possibilities are endless for this type of project.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
