Popcorn Envelop Box Tutorial

Edit:  The finished box should measure 6 1/8" x 4" x 1/2".

I created a little tutorial on my popcorn envelop box, of course you could fill it with other things as well.  Please be patient with me as this is my very first tutorial.  So here it goes......

Every year my family and I host Thanksgiving dinner, I alway like to have a little favor at each place setting for my guests.  This year I have created a little envelop box to place a package of microwave poporn in.  I had a few people ask me how I made them so I decided to do this tutorial for you.

The basic supplies you'll need for this project are :

1 sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock
corner rounder punch
scoring tool (I use the Scor Pal)
adhesive (I use Scor Tape)

You'll want to mark you paper 3" up at each corner and 1 1/8" in and cut so you'll paper will look like this.

Next you will score at the cut lines and 1/2" out so it will look like this.

and like this

Next you'll round the corners.

After rounding you corners, fold all the score lines and add adhesive to the inside of the bottom flap.

Fold in the sides and attach the bottom flap.

This is want the finish project should look like

This is my finished project.

I used rustic cream cardstock and Autumn Abundance patterned paper. 

For the focal image I die cut a piece of terracotta tile cardstock using the Mat Stack I die then stamped the  flourish image from Round and Round set in dark chocolate. On some rustic cream cardstock I stamped the dot border from Take Note in terracotta tile, the leaf is from Fall Elegance stamped in orange zest and terracotta tile and the sentiment from Vintage Picnic stamped in dark chocolate.  I then punched out that image with a 1 3/4" punch and adhered it to the background image.  To keep the envelope closed I used a piece of copper metalic elastic that I had in my stash.  You could use velco, magnets or tie some ribbon round it.

A bag of microwave popcorn fits nicely inside.

The brand of popcorn I used was from Pop Weaver.  I liked that it read "gourmet microwave popcorn" on the package instead of the name of the maker of the popcorn and I also liked the kraft bag which goes well with the rustic paper.

 These would make a great favor for a childs party or baby/wedding shower.  A little gift for a teacher or coworker, the ideas are endless. 

Well I hope you enjoyed my first ever tutorial.
