Step 10: Add ribbon holder (if desired)


Step 11: Remove all tape liners and form the box: Put the other end of the rubber band in as shown


Step 12: Decorate. I used the leftovers and cut the 2'' x 2'' squares out


I stamped and inked the edges. Cut them as show(1 into 4 pieces, others into 2 pieces) You can also cut photos.


Remember to leave a gap in the middle so the box can still be folded down.


You can stamp directly on the box in Step 8 :)
