Mini Box in a Bag~
I received a request from a friend asking me if I could scale down the Box in a Bag project that is scooting around the web. Easy peasy request! I did this in about 10 - 15 minutes, no prototype necessary. YAY! Generally I make a plain white prototype when I am scaling down a project or creating a box of some sort, that way I don't waste the good stuff. :) I had a bit of the patterned paper left over from the mini pizza box post from the other day, so I used it for this mini project. :)
Here's what the full size version looks like, posted on Cami's blog:
Cami saw it on SUDSOL ( A Stampin' Up! site of sorts for demos, I think anyway, I never was part of it) and created the one you see in her post.
Turns out Diana Gibbs is the creator, you can find her tutorial here: Box in a Bag Tutorial
Anyway, to make a smaller box/bag, I started with paper these sizes:
2 1/2 x 2 1/2" square of card stock
3" x 6 1/2" piece of patterned paper
3/8" x 6 1/2" strip of scalloped card stock
The only difference between this mini version and the regular size version is the score lines for the box portion. Score the 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" piece of card stock 1/2" on all sides. The rest of the directions are the same for adhering the box/bag together.
So the finished size of the Mini Box in a Bag is 1 1/2" for the box bottom by 3" tall. Perfect for a little candy treat or a small bag of embellishments.
