This box is based on some boxes that have been sent by the [your, mine, our] Other Mother. I'm not selling them on my Etsy site. I don't think it would be proper. I do think that everyone who wants one should be able to have one; so I've made this Instructable. I hope you like it.
Step 1: Print Templates and Gather Materials
For this project you will need the following:
1 sheet of illustration board* at least 8.5" X 11"
1 yard 0.75" ribbon
1 sheet covering paper 11" X 17"
1 piece riser paper at least 5.5" X 8.5"
1 sheet scrap paper
1 fabric scrap at least 5.5" X 8.5"
1 piece thin cardboard** at least 2" X 2"
clear packing tape
regular hole punch
0.5" circle template
*You can use any sort of stiff board which you think would make a sturdy box.
**The back of notepads is good for this.
***You don't need this tool, per se. I use it to burnish some lines with, which can be done with a capped pen or any other sort of pressure-putting, non-marking object.
