Scalloped Tag Topper Punch - the closing box

After fiddling with measurements, I successfully designed a closing lid for the cute little Scalloped Tag Topper Punch box.  I've changed out the sizing from the original box so that this one may fit on a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of cardstock.


You can see that I've scored along the long side at 2", 4", 6", and 8".  Along the short side I've scored at
1 1/2" and 3 1.2".  If you go to my tutorial for the original Scalloped Tag Topper Punch box, you will see the lines I've put on the punch and why I've done so.

Line up the 6" score line and the 8" score line with the lines on the punch as shown and punch out this section.


Next, line up the 2" score line and the 4" score line with the lines on the punch as shown and punch out this section:

Your cardstock should now look like this:


Now all you have to do is to line up the ends of your punch cuts on your Stampin' Trimmer as shown:


Trim the 1/2" wide strip from the top to the score line and from the bottom to the score line as shown.
Next cut your score lines from the top to meet the scored line and from the bottom to meet the scored line.  Then you will trim the bottom flaps of the sections that do not have the scalloped top to approximately 1/2".

Next fold under the scalloped sections and line up your straight topped section on the Envelope Punch Board as shown.  Make sure your paper lines up exactly as I have shown.  Punch that section.


Flip over your paper and line it up exactly as shown.  Punch that section.


Trim the little pointy ends as shown:


Next, cut a piece of cardstock to 1 7/8" x 1 1/8".  I've chosen to use black only because of the project I'm doing.  This piece can be the same colour as the base cardstock if you wish.  Its only purpose is to provide a slot into which the end formed by the Envelope Punch Board will fit.  Put double sided Sticky Tape on each end as shown.


Adhere to the unshaped straight flap as shown.


Next, add all the Designer Paper and embellishments that please you.


And close up your box.


And this is my finished project.  Enjoy making yours.  Please do not sell this template and please give me credit.  Thanks.
