Tutorials from Blog Tour: Part 2

As promised, here is a tutorial on the mini tote that I shared on the Royal Blog Tour. You'll need the Big Shot and the Box #2 Bigz XL Die. You'll make the box as normal but leave the top flap and secure the side flaps inside the box with sticky strip.

Then adhere TWO of the Box#2 together.

Instead of using the top flap as my handles, I wanted to add extra height on my tote so that you could carry it comfortably and see the scalloped detail on the handle. So I cut TWO 3-3/4" x 5" of Chocolate Chip card stock. Trimmed the top corners with a 3/16" Corner Rounder Punch. Then adhere the pieces to the top flaps and to each other.
(Sticky trip on the top flap)

(Sticky strip on the bottom of one side, sticky strip on both top on bottom for the other side)

Using the Large Oval Punch, make a hole for the handle. Then for the decorative part on the handle, punch a large oval in Pumpkin Pie card stock and then use the Scallop Oval Punch.

(You'll do that 2x for each side of the handle.)

To finish the whole project, layer the scallop oval onto the handle, wrap the boxes with Designer Series Paper or with a large decorative ribbon as I did and voilĂ .

Another simple yet eye catching project! Enjoy!
