A2 Box Tutorial

Okay...here is the tutorial I talked about on my Unity blog hop post. This is the first ever blog tutorial I have done, so I hope you can understand my instructions! Please feel free to ask if anything is not clear! I will answer any and all questions!
You will need to start with a 10" by 12" sheet of cardstock. You will score the 12" side as seen above, at 1", 5.5", 6.5" and 11". I used my scor pal, but any scoring tool will work.

Now you will turn your paper and on the 10" side will score at 1", 2", 8" and 9".

Sorry for the scribbles! LOL! It was hard to see with just the X's. The scribbled parts are the parts you will cut away.

Next you will cut slits which will create flaps, as seen in the photo above.

Above, I used painter's tape to show where you will put your adhesive.
I hope this tutorial is helpful! If you create a box, why not upload it and link it here, so we can all see it! If you upload it to SCS, use keyword EMMIEA2!
Stay tuned tomorrow...I will be back with another project!

I love your tutorial! I decided to use it for a VSN challenge and plan to give the box to my mom as a gift filled with cards I've made. I hope she likes it!
