Simple Saturday – An Oldie but Goodie

Stampin Up!

I cannot even remember the first time I made a Triangle Box but I do remember how easy it was to assemble. And I know I have made alot more since that first time.

Today, I used the Haunting Hill Jumbo Wheel – $9.95, #116359 – and Twick or Tweet Stamp Set – $24.95, #116497 – both on page 10 of the Holiday Mini to give my Triangle Box a Halloween theme.

For this Triangle Box, I cut my Pumpkin Pie cardstock to 4" x 8".  However, this box can be made in a variety of sizes by
keeping the cardstock twice as long as is it wide.
 

Stampin Up  

Score cardstock in half at 4” on the long side. Turn cardstock and mark middle of short side at 2” with a pencil or scoring tool.

Diagonally line up the mark with the middle of the long side and score.  Repeat until you have a triangles created by the scored lines. Repeat on the other side. 

Stampin Up

I wheeled the Pumpkin Pie cardstock with the Haunting Hill Jumbo Wheel and Basic Black ink.  To make the tag, I stamped the little bird also with Basic Black ink and coloured the pumpkin with the Pumpkin Pie marker. Next, I punched the image with the small tag and created a layering piece from Baic Balck cardstock and the tag punch.

Fold one side in along the scored lines and punch a hole for the ribbon with the Crop-a-dile.  Thread ribbon through hole. Fill box if desired. Bring in the opposite side and punch again. Thread ribbon through second hole, add tag and tie.
