Scor-pal and Graphic 45

Hi there! Tya here with a fun project that shows off how amazing a pairing up of Graphic 45 and my handy Scor-pal can be! I loved the beautiful, rich papers that we were given to work with, so thanks Graphic 45! I was inspired by this project from songofmyheartstampers, but I used some fortune cookies instead of the coffee cups to go along with the theme of the papers. This would be a great gift to show that special friend, spouse or teacher just how "fortunate" you are to have them in your life :)
Here's my project:
Fortune Cookie Box

Cardstock (2) 2x 5 1/4 inches
black ink
fortune cookies
Step 1- take a 8 1/4 x 8 1/4 square of pattern paper. Score on one side at 2 and 6 1/4.

 Step 2- Rotate paper and score again at 2 and 6 1/4.
 Step 3- Snip the edges as shown.
 Step 4 - Take the 2 x 5 1/4 inch cardstock and score each piece at 1/2 inch and 4 3/4 inches
Step 5- Make a mark at the 2 5/8 inch mark. 
 Find a groove and score a line about half way down.
 Trim the 2 score lines you just made about half way down.
 Fold on the scored lines and line up the half way snipped up lines and fit them together as shown.
 Step 6- Add adhesive to the sides of the box.
Adhere sides together to form the box.
 Step 7- Add adhesive to the flaps on the box as shown.
 Glue this divided section to the inside of the box as shown.
 Step 8 - Add fortune cookies.
 Step 9 - Make the tag by using a cut out from the pattern papers. Add cellophane to the outside of the box. Punch a hole and add the ribbon to the tag. tie the tag to the cellophane. Add buttons and ink the edges of the tag with black ink if desired.
Thanks for joining me and thank you to Graphic 45! Happy Scoring!
