Scalloped Top Box Printable Template

What a Friday! This morning, I received my acceptance email from Paper Crafts Magzine!! I am one of the 21 newbies! Leaping for joy! I am going to be a published card maker / stamper! Yay! And my valentine heart top boxes project with free templates is featured on Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Store Blog and their Facebook page!!

Ok, here goes my  new project: Scalloped Top Boxes!

I made this box for a set of felt coasters for hubby:) He is a 100% “less is more” guy so…

I like this one the most myself:

Tuck in some crafty goodies for a friend! A roll of ribbon or some beautiful embellishments!

1. Print and cut the shape out following the solid outlines.

2. Score the dashed lines on the front of your paper for crisp edges:

3. Add adhesive as shown:

4. Line up the edges and press the two small flaps down

Make sure the long edge is straight up and press the bottom flap down. I traced the scalloped top on a piece of cardstock. You can easily create different closures this way (as shown in the “thanks” box in the first photo).

I was inspired by the beautiful envelopes by Pebbles.
