Welcome to another edition of Tuesday's Tips & Techniques.
Today after much anticipation I have the Tutorial for you to make these nifty little gift boxes that you have all been looking at on my blog of late. This one is a new one which I am also entering into this weeks Just Add Ink Challenge -  Just Add Chevrons.  So below is my finished  Gift Box for C6 size cards.
Scroll through for the free tutorial.

1. Cut 2 sheets of Cardstock to 8 1/4' x 6 1/2'. I have used Stampin' Up! Bashful Blue.
2. Score all four sides of one sheet at 1 inch mark on Simply Scored as shown in the photograph below.
This sheet of cardstock becomes the bottom of your gift box.
3. Next using the second sheet of cardstock score all four sides at 7/8' on Simply Scored. This is one indent back from 1' mark. This sheet become the top of your gift box.

4. Cut into one side of the score marks to form tabs. See photo below. Fold along all score lines.
 Then using an adhesive, I used Tombow, glue the tabs together to form your box sides

5. So now you have your completed gift box with a card inside. All that is left to do is decorate the top.

6. My Cherry Cobbler topper measures 6 ' x 4 1/4'

7. My Festival of Prints Patterned paper is 5 3/4' x 4'.
