Hello friends!  It is a new year, 2018!! Did you pick a new years resolution?  I have a challenge for you all.  Lets use what we buy, more often.  So to help you use up that 12×12 pattern paper, I have a tutorial on how to make a box from 12×12 paper.  Then you just need some embellishments and ribbon to decorate, oh and a strong adhesive. For todays project I used the Little Flirty pattern paper from the Sweet Nothings Collection, as well as the embellishments.

First you need to score your paper at 3 inches and 9 inches.

Then rotate your paper, then score again, at 1 inch, 3 1/2 inches, 61/2 inches and 9 inches. This is also where you will use scissors, and trim away the left and right top 2 rectangle, and cut along the score line.  You do not want to cut into the middle rectangles.

Using strong adhesive, place along the long folded pieces.

Using ribbon, tie the box closed. Then using Sweet Nothings Ephemera and Tags, decorate the box.
