Triangle Boxes

Now that I've demo'd these at my March workshops I will post them here. (Didn't want to ruin the surprise). I love these boxes because they are SO simple.
Directions: Cut your cardstock or DSP (Designer Series Paper) to 4 1/4" x 8 1/2".
Score along the center line at 4 1/4".
Make a small mark on the short ends at 2 1/8"
Score from that mark to the center fold line (as shown).
Fold box into finished shape - open up one side at a time and punch a 1/8" hole through both layers (to thread ribbon through).
Add ribbon and accent to front - no glue needed! How fabulous is that!

Look at the little medallions I used on the saffron and Bashful blue boxes. Don't you love them? I'm sort of addicted to making them and have been using them on everything lately. It's so much fun combining punches in different variations and figuring new ways to use them. And the Polka Dot punches Sell-A-Bration set has 4 images that are all perfectly sized to use with the SU punches. Gotta love that.
Wouldn't these boxes be perfect filled with jellybeans? or hershey kisses? or Cadbury chocolate eggs? mmmm.
