4th of July Patriotic Party Favor Box + Tutorial

Today's project is perfect for celebrating Independence Day with family and friends! This patriotic stars and stripes box uses just a half sheet of cardstock. I original created this version for the April On Stage Display Boards, but I've also made this box for many other occasions. See them here.
4th of July Patriotic Party Favor Box + Tutorial -- make it with just a half sheet of cardstock!
Pin It! 
Here's how to make the Half Sheet Treat Box:
  1. Start with a piece of cardstock that measures 8-1/2" x 5-1/2". 
  2. Score at 1-1/2", 4", 5-1/2", and 8". 
  3. Turn 90 degrees and score at 1-1/2". 
  4. Cut on the score lines up to the 1-1/2" score line. Completely remove the tab at the end.
  5. Fold on all the score lines. Use Tear & Tape or Fast Fuse to adhere the box together.
If you are more of a visual learner, here is the video that I created for this box a couple years ago. (It does use some retired product including the Silver Ink Pad, Rotary Attachment for the Stampin' Trimmer, and Stick Strip. Those items are no longer available in my Online Store.)
