One Sheet Box Challenge

UPDATE: You are more then welcome to use ANY products you like to make your creations. We are thrilled to see what you will inspire us with here at 3DDC.
Ready for more? I know you are! This week's challenge is the One Sheet Box! Now, what do you need to do this? Well, the free template below and one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 paper or cardstock. I know you've got that!

Pam and I have been playing with this template for a while now and, actually, when we first met, she made one of these for me and I still have it so, I think that'll be my sample this week (cheeky and lazy of me, but its so darn cute!).

This first box to the left is Pam's creation. She stuck to the original template, zig zag cut the top of the box and added 4 holes to both the front and back sides to lace ribbon through. Another wonderful box for small goodies.

For mine, I decided to try a few things that I had on hand and just have not been wanting to use, for various reasons. I used a great pocket slider and made a tag that can be pulled out. Along the side, I used some letter brads but cut the backings off of them and just added them on with glue dots. I also closed the box using a belly band versus tying it like Pam did. This little box is extremely versatile!

One Sheet Box Template

One little tip, on the template you'll see those little diagonal score lines. I didn't use them, I just folded the side inside centre fold down to the outer edge - hard to describe and I'll try to come up with some photos or a video in the next day or so.

We can't wait to see what you all come up with! Remember, all you have to do to play along is to post to the comments section of this post with a link to where we can view your work of art! You have until Tuesday,September 9th by 9PM MST (GST-7) here on this post.

Have been meaning to try your challenge for several weeks now, and finally got around to it! Here's my One Sheet box (second post down) on my blog! Thanks for the fun... 3-D designs and getting "out of my box" are something I really need to do more!

I also made an ornament to put in the box as a little gift item, but there is still plenty of room to add some more goodies, too!!! Thanks so much for the template and darling samples!!! Just love this box!!! It's on my blog!!!
