Gum Box Tutorial by Jackie Rakoski

This month, our Fabulous DT member, Jackie Rakoski, is showing you how to make a gum box holder- perfect timing for Halloween and Christmas treats- and perfect for our newest Holiday sets!

Materials Needed:

Pack of Gum
4" x 8 1/2" CS Base
2 3/4" x 8 1/2" Decorative Paper
2 7/8" x 8 1/2" Mat CS Paper
Scor-Pal (or bone folder)
Double Sided Tape
Stamps - I used Halloween Hauntings

1. Holding the paper with the 4" piece Score the paper at 1/2" and again at 3 1/2"

2. Rotate the paper 90 degrees and score the CS base at 2 1/2", 3", 6", and 6 1/2"

3. Cut paper at 2 1/2" - 3" till the 1/2" and 3 1/2" and again at 6" till the end of the paper till the 1/2" and the 3 1/2"

4. Use one of the circle Nestabilities to create the cover, placing the paper only half way into the Nestability so that only part of the paper gets cut.

5. Fold the paper on all the folds to begin forming the box.

6. Create covers for the outside of the box, including creating the top cover, once again using circle Nestabilities to cut only part of the paper.

7. Attach all the paper mats to the box.

8. Use double sided tape on the inside fold of the box. Place the gum box into the box your creating and attach the box around the gum box.

9. Attach your magnets to the box.

10. Decorate the box with stamps as you desire. I used one smaller image on the cover, with a matching sentiment, and a larger image on the back cover.
