Triangle Box Tutorial & Challenge

I know I've seen other "triangle boxes" out there, but this is my version. I think I got the idea somewhere on splitcoast. Not totally sure though, since its been a very long time ago :) (you may click on the pictures to get a larger view)

1. I used Sky Blue Cardstock (4x8), Whisper White Craft ink, Sky Blue ink, and Basic Grey Ink, A bone Folder, a 1/8th" hand-held hole punch, and Priceless Stamp set. I also used Basic Grey Taffeta ribbon and Large Oval punch to finish my box.

2. Next you want to score the cardstock with your bonefolder down the middle at 4".

3. Then find the center of each side, this will be at the 2" mark and make a score line from this point to the center score line edge.

4. You can stamp the outside if you wish.

5. Now fold the cardstock in half, and fold angled edges in so they overlap each other. If you are going to fill the box with treats, you should do it at this time.

6. Using your hand-held hole punch, punch each side about 1/4" down from the top. I then strung ribbon through these holes.

7. Tie the ribbon and add a tag if desired.

Now link up your triangle box so we can all see your creation!
