Other Supplies: ScoreBoards XL Die – Box, Post by Eileen Hull, Glue Gun, Adhesive Sheets, 6" x 6", Permanent, 10PK, Glue Sticks, 12PK, Cardstock Sheets, 80PK (20 Colors), Mat Board, 6" x 13", White, 6 Sheets OR Sizzix Surfacez – Mixed Media Board, 6" x 13", White & Grey, 10 PK, Patterned Paper, Ribbon, Scissors.
- On a piece of mat board or mixed media board, adhere adhesive sheets down the entire length of the board. The portion that will act as the top flap of the Post Box will be in a patterned paper and the main body of the post box will be covered in Cherry Blossom cardstock. Align the die to the side of the board and adhere the papers to line up to achieve this separation when they cut. (*Note: It is also possible to cut the board first with only the Cherry Blossom cardstock and then die cut the patterned paper and adhere it to the box afterwards.)
- Fold along all the crease lines and begin to fold the tabs inwards to create the shape of the box.
- Adhere the tabs on the body of the post box into place with hot glue and then adhere the flap on the lid to the front of the post box with hot glue.
- Wrap a length of ribbon around the center of the box, leaving enough room to tie it into a bow on the front flap. Trim the excess length of the ribbon off with scissors.
