Per instructions, you'll be cutting and scoring the paper so get out that paper trimmer, here I have a picture of hte Uchida Paper Trimmer with the scoring blade. (picture on the left).
Then further on in the instructions -step 5, we used a x-acto knife and straight edge. (see picture on the right)
Picture here show the center and the corners cut out.
Just a couple pictures to see how to make the cover.
The cute stamps that we used to embellish the box after completing it! Just another project that you can do during your lunch hour. What's even better it, the box itself only takes one 12x12 sheet of paper.
