Cookie Box


Stamp a 12″x 12″piece of cardstock as desired. Score one side at 2 3/4″ and 9 1/4″; turn cardstock 90 degrees and score at 2 3/4″, 5 1/2″, 8 1/4″, and 11″.


Cut off the two thin unnecessary ends.


Cut on all horizontally score lines up to intersecting score lines-this creates your side ends.


Cut off 1-3/4'' off set of tab ends. This creates the box lid....

Round all 4 lid corners with your round corner punch.

Create a 2 1/2″x 4 3/8″ rectangular template; lay template on box top and trace;

cut out with paper cutter.

Cut out a piece of window sheet to 3 1/2″x 5 1/2″ and adhere

to inside of box covering the window.


Fold on all score lines folding the acetate sheet as you go.

Apply double-sided tape to the last two tabs on each end. Fold up box starting at far end and finished at box lid. Fold lid into box with tabs on the inside.

Thanks Natasha Z. for sharing this amazing tutorial.

shadow box

I was inspired to do this a couple of months ago when SC put our a small demo w/ a shadow box display. I new just the person to make one for. My mommy-n-law on her birthday. You see cancer took her mom and yrs later taking her dad too. She misses them dearly and always shares stories of them. I had so much fun hearing about their lives-it really help me capture the love they shared for 48yrs till death departed them.
