What you will need:
- Scoring tool
- Circle punch or SCAL/MTC
- Scoreboard or Something to score with.
1. Trim one sheet of paper to 9.5"x11.75" and another to 4.5"x4.5"(the small piece you might want to make in SCAL because you will need to cut a circle in the center if you don't have a circle punch. Read the whole tutorial first to decide what you want to do.)
In this order
a. Along the 9.5" side: Score at .5", 3.5", 6" and 9"
b. Along the 11.75" side: Score at .75" 3.25", 6.25" and 8.75"
c. Then flip the paper again back to score part way along the 9.5" side: score at 3" up to the 6.25" score line then stop and restart from 8.75" to the end. (there will be a gap of scoring between 6.25"-8.75")
Do the same thing at 6.5". Score at 6.5" up to the 6.25"score line then stop. Restart score at 8.75" to the end. (there will be a gap of scoring between 6.25"-8.75")
See photo above to see how this should look.
3. Remove the areas I have shaded in the pic above. It should look like the pic below.
6. To make the insert to hold the egg you can do a couple things. But first you need to start with your 4.5"x4.5" piece of paper.
a. You will need to score at 1" on every side.
b. Cut a 1.63" circle in the center. (I used SCAL to cut the circle) You can either cut a circle and draw it onto the center of your paper then cut out that circle by hand. Or your can make the 4.5"x4.5" square in SCAL and place the 1.63" circle in the center and "exclude" it from the square then cut out on your machine. OR you could use a hole punch if you have one big enough.
c. Next you will want to cut away the shaded areas. Look at the picture below to see what it should look like.
7. Fold the insert and place inside box. That's it! If you like the box the way it is that's great or you could embellish it more like the first couple pictures!
I used a Martha Stewart punch to cut a little flower in the front of my simple box for a little peep hole to see the egg.
You can use a REAL egg or a cute little plastic egg filled with goodies. I made the box large enough for either one! I found some cute plastic eggs at the Dollar Tree. It came with 12 eggs for a buck!
