After Eight Box Tutorial

I love it when you make projects using my tutorials but please be sure to link back here and give credit when you make and post to your blog.
Thank-you for your understanding and I hope you enjoy this tutorial xx
As requested by the lovely Liz here is a tutorial for making the little boxes or wraps around the 5 pack of After Eight Mints. I will say before we start I have taken a lot of pictures as it is easier to show than it is to describe ;-) so grab a cuppa and we will begin...
First you need a 12 x 12 piece of your chosen card, and you need to cut it into a 6cm strip
Score at 1, 6.5, 9.5, 15, 18 and 23.5 cm, discard the last 1cm,
Before you fold the card crisply stamp all over one side and between 18cm and the end on the opposite side as shown, I have used Every Little bit for this,
You then need to add strong dst like red line to the first 1 cm section on both sides, remove adhesive from the plain side and stick to box at the top, back, as shown here,
Fold tightly around box removing other piece of tape backing to secure, fold the easel part crisply to get the shape below,
Decorate as desired, I have used a combo of Rich Razzleberry, Tempting Turquoise and Pear Pizazz, adding a button to hold the easel part up,
I decorated with the great Party This Way stamps,
And the top view,

Well, I hope this is of help to you Liz and anyone else too :-D
and thanks as ever for stopping by,
