Christmas Goodie Box & Movers and Shapers Die & Tutorial

Isn't this cute little goodie box adorable? Even you can create this and it's really quite quick to complete. If you don't have the BigShot or Movers & Shapers Die, you can substitute with a punch or leave the top without a cut-out. Instructions are below:

Start out with a piece of cardstock measuring 6" x 5.25". Score at 7/8" around all four sides:
Using your "Paper Snips", make a cut as shown below in each corner:

Apply "Tombow Adhesive" to all four corners:

Fold the small squares that you just applied adhesive to towards the inside of the adjacent side panels. Apply pressure to glue in place. You should have a square base bottom that looks like the photo below:

Now we will be creating the outside part of the box. Using your BigShot and Movers & Shapers Die, position the Ornament Cut-out from the "Holiday Windows Magnetic Stampin' Up! Movers & Shapers Die" and position in the center of the Movers & Shapers Die as shown below:

Position a piece of "Real Red Cardstock" over the "Movers & Shapers Die":

Run the die & cardstock through your BigShot and this is what your piece of cardstock should look like:

You will notice that the ornament shape is now cut out and you have a fold in the center of your cardstock. Using your "Vintage Wallpaper Impressions Folder", insert the portion of your cardstock piece that has the ornament cut-out and run through the BigShot once again:

This is what your embossed cardstock should look like:
Using a score tool, score at 1" on both ends and at 4.5" from the embossed edge. You should now have 4 scored lines:

Apply glue on the end furthest from the ornament cut-out:

Glue in place to form a square box:

Using an "Acetate Sheet", cut out a piece approximately 3" x 3" and apply "Sticky Tape" to all 4 edges:

Add to your box on the inside over the ornament shape. This step might have been easier to complete before you glued your cardstock piece together. I forgot to add mine first so I just slipped it inside the box and pressed with my hand to secure in place
Using the "Ornament Punch", cut 1 with DSP of your choice:

Add "Stampin' Dimensionals" to the back and adhere to the "Real Red" cut-out of the ornament:

Glue to the front of your box and add a strip of ribbon to one side:

I also added a small stamped image to the center of my ornament. Fill with goodies!

Note: If you don't own the "Movers & Shapers", you can make your own window using a punch and the paper size is 4.25" x 11".

You’ll find plenty of reasons to use our Holiday Windows Magnetic Movers & Shapers die. These magnetic dies attach to the Curly Label Movers & Shapers die to cut a perfect window on your card fronts in one smooth move. You can also use the cut-out images alone. The ornament die is slightly larger than our new Ornament punch, which makes it easy for you to create coordinated layered images. These dies must be used with the Curly Label Movers & Shapers die.
