LadyBug Box & Card

When I made these at a Glitterbugs Meeting with Sue N. I just knew they would be a great Hostess Luncheon Project! The Box with the cards is super cute!!

The LadyBug can be make from three scallop punches.

Each folded in 1/2 the same way.
Then SNAIL (tape) them together.

Use a 3/4" Black Circle for the Head and two black Brads for the "feelers" {hehe} connected with a black line. I just used a marker.

Make sure you add the LadyBug to your Designer Series Paper BEFORE you adhere it to your card base or Brads "Legs" {BONNIE ;o)} will be on the inside of your card.

Also if you make the Box Top adhere the LadyBug BEFORE you put the top together with the sticky strip.

To make the box you will need a 9" X 9" pc of Designer Series Paper. And a 5 1/4" X 5 1/4" pc of card stock for the lid.

Score to DSP at 3" and 9" turn and score again at 3" and 9". {the blue lines}

Cut off each corner. Line up the the score lines and cut. SAVE THE CORNERS!! You will cut a 1/4" off of each one and use them on the 4 - 3" X 3" cards. {I LOVE that part, talk about using all your paper!}

After all the corners are cut off the 9 x 9 pc fold on all the score lines. To make the part fold in I line up the ends and press down in that pc you see above.

It will look like this. Do this to each side and you will have your card box.

For the box top take the 5 1/4" X 5 1/4" and score in 1" on each side. Cut on the "pink" lines. This picture will be the inside of your box top:

Flip the pc over and Add your LadyBug and stamping BEFORE you sticky strip your box top together. Add the sticky strip and fold the flaps in to make the box top. Here is where to put the sticky strip:
