2-4-6-8 Father's Day favor box

Needing a quick and easy favor?  Try this 2-4-6-8 box.  Simply take a 6 x 8 1/2" of card stock, score horizontally at 2, 4, 6, and 8 inches -- you should have a 1/2" tab sticking left on edge.  Now rotate 180 degrees and score at 2" on one long side.  Then, cut on the short score lines -- up to the long one -- so you can fold those tabs in at the bottom to form your box.  Next, crease on all score lines with bone folder.  Stamp design on outside of box -- here I used the Circle Circus stamp set.  Finally, take the scallop square punch and punch out a window on one side.  Adhere a 2x2 pc of Light Window sheets behind the window.  Fold the box together -- adhering the walls first, then fold up the bottom tabs, and glue all together with the Tombow Multi glue.  Fill with your Dad's favorite treats, fold together like a milk carton, punch two holes in the top with the Crop-o-dile, and thread a red 1/4" grossgrain ribbon through.  Add the little Happy Father's Day tag -- using the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set, the large oval, and scalloped oval punches.  Add the star with a silver brad in the center, to finish it off.

This is a great little box that can be adapted for any occasion.

Here are all three projects we will be doing at my upcoming Father's Day/Masculine cards Class.
