Make these "Top Note Die" boxes as seen on 3TV's "Your Life A to Z" in Phoenix!

Here's how:

Top Note Die (or other die shape of your choice)
Die Cutting Machine
2 pieces of cardstock measuring 4 1/4" X 5 1/2"
Scoring tool to score cardstock
Glue or tape
Pattern Paper
Any other embellishments for top of box

Step 1: With the die and a die cutter, cut 2 chipboard shapes. (Be green and recycle old cereal boxes or other containers! And it's FREE!)

Step 2: Die cut two pieces of patterned paper.

Step 3: Glue each piece of patterned paper to the chipboard shapes.

Step 4: Cut two pieces of cardstock 4 1/4" X 5 1/2"

Step 5: Score at 1" all the way around on one piece of the cardstock.

Step 6: Score at 1 1/16" all the way around on the second piece of cardstock.

Step 7: Cut the two score lines on each of the short ends on both of the cardstock

Step 8: Fold and glue the ends to create the box top. Repeat the same steps on the second piece of cardstock to form the box bottom.

Step 9: Attach the box TOP to the die cut shape (attach on the chipboard side).

Step 10: Attach the box BOTTOM to the die cut shape (attach on the patterned paper side).

Step 11: Embellish as desired and enjoy!!!

NOTE: If you don't have a die and a die cutting machine, the box can still easily be created by cutting a piece of chipboard to 3 1/4" X 4 1/4". Then, just follow the rest of the easy steps!

I hope you enjoy making these delightfully easy gift boxes!
