Today I wanted to show you a simple 2,4,6,8 Christmas box that I made.
It's called a 2, 4, 6, 8 box because that's basically the pattern used to make the box. Start with an 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of card stock (1/2 a sheet). With the 8 1/2" side going across the top, score at 2", 4", 6", and 8". Rotate it so the 5 1/2" side is going across the top and score it at 2". Fold on all of the score lines.
Cut off the little 2” x 1/2” piece of card stock (NOT the 1/2" x 3 1/2" piece). Cut on the 2”, 4”, 6” and 8” score lines and stop at the 2” score mark that is going across all of them. Add sticky strip on the 1/2” x 3 1/2” piece and adhere it together into the shape of a box. Fold in the bottom flaps and adhere them in place.
Instead of leaving the box open on top, I filled the box with mini Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, pinched in the sides, punched out two 1/4" circles, threaded some Whisper White Organza ribbon through the holes and tied it to keep the box closed.
Looking close at the picture you can see that I stamped the snowflakes from the Cheerful Tags Stamp set in Soft Sky ink on the Soft Sky card stock. I also added a 3/4" wide strip of Nordic Noel DSP around the box.
I made this fun Holiday Cheer tag to go on the front. All of the images are also from the Cheerful Tags stamp set. I cut it out using the coordinating Note Tag punch. I punched an 1/8" circle in the top of the tag, threaded some Silver Cording through the hole, added a Silver Snowflake, and tied it through the Whisper White Organza ribbon. Very simple and pretty.
This box is an oldie, but a goodie. I love using this simple pattern. Give it a try. Thanks for stopping by!
