This week we have a fabby Tutorial for you from Katrina
Now poor Katrina has been ill but we did not know! She has been a total Trooper and still done you a Tutorial, so hope we see some entries using her Tutorial.

Tutorial - Easel Box

I apologize in advance that I haven't had time to decorate the finished box, I have been ill and unable to get the energy together to move - let alone craft in any other form! 

For this tutorial you will need;
Card cut to these sizes
4’’ x 11’’
4’’ x 9’’
5 3/4’’ x 5 3/4’’
4’’ x 8’’
4’’ x 4’’
A Scoring Board or Ruler and Embossing Tool
Double Sided Tape or glue
Scissors and papers that you wish to decorate your box with.

1) Score your sheet of 4’’ x 11’’ card at 4’’, 5’’, 9’’ and 10’’

2) Stick double sided tape on the section between 10'' and 11''
(sorry about the diagram, Im still learning! )

3) Peel back the double sided tape and fold over so it creates a box shape

4) Score your 4'' x 9'' piece of card at 4'' and 5'', add tape on the inside of the 4'' squares

5) Stick this around your box shape you just created. 

6) Score your piece of 5 3/4'' x 5 3/4'' around each edge 1'' in

7) cut in on one side of each corner, add double sided tape to the 'reverse' of each flap
so the flap will stick on the inside of the box.

8) The drawer should fit straight into the pocket you have created.  
9) With your final piece of 4'' x 8''  score at 4'' and attach this to the top side of your box using double sided tape.
I always add another piece of 4'' square card so the card looks like a  square blank! 

We hope you will have fun making an Easel Box too!
Happy Crafting Katrina.
