Challenge details at the bottom.
Before getting out my Christmas decorations I had to clear the clutter on my tables and shelves. I keep tissues all over the house – in pretty much every room – and I wanted them to look like they ‘belonged’ with the holiday decorations. I’m not going to go out and buy 12 new holiday patterned boxes but I can make my own personalized covers with my KNK digital cutting system and Make-the-Cut!
I wanted the design to be simple to assemble and use only one piece of 12″ x 12″ paper. I figured I could add a ‘skirt’ to finish off the bottom. I measured the box and opening and then, using basic shapes, created my design. I created a layer for the score lines and a layer for the cut lines.
- 12″ x 12″ card stock or scrapbook paper
- Embossing tool
- Standard (red cap) blade
- Double Sided Adhesive Tape
Settings (Maxx Air):
- Score the first layer using the embossing tool (turn off the blade offset)
- Cut the second layer using the standard blade (turn blade offset back on)
- Fold the score lines
- Adhere the flaps to the matching edges using double sided adhesive tape
- Decorate the bottom 2″ of the Kleenex box (I did not adhere anything to the Kleenex box so that I can slip off the decoration after Christmas – if the box is not empty, anyway)
- Place the cut and assembled design over top of the box
- Embellish as desired (I used a green faux velvet ribbon and a red/gold faux velvet ribbon, then finished it with a bow)
