Gift Boxes Galore: 2-5-7-10 Box

This purse/bag/box is super super super easy to make (especially if you use designer papers!--No stampin!) The tutorial for this box is here. I just changed one thing to ensure a great fold in the top:

After step 4 where you have scores all of your lines and you cut as it says to do, I chose to score along the middle of the side pieces--from the top down three-quarters of the way (they are 2 inches wide, so I scored in the middle.) This eliminates step 8 and makes it super even.

The beads were inspired by NancyRuth's great halloween bags on s.c.s. The paper is Inspire by Basic Grey from their Infuse collection (inf-834). The beads are from the dollar store. The ribbon is S.U.'s taffeta in "Chocolate Chip."

Happy Stampin'

P.S. ETA: here's a great video tutorial series on how to make a 2-5-7-10 box part 1 SCORING, & part 2 CUTTING, & Part 3 ASSEMBLY & part 4 FINISHING
