Created this Easter box to hold some candy for a friend. Michaels had papercrafting items 50% off which included the WeR boards so I got the WeR Gift Box board. Made this medium box with an 8" x 8" piece of cardstock. Discovered that the cardstock needs to be sturdier than a piece I first tried because when you score it, crease it and assemble the cardstock tears. Also discovered that red tape works better than other double-sided adhesive. Used some double-sided adhesive and let the box sit for awhile and the adhesive did not hold it together well so I added red tape & it is staying together. The instructions to make the gift box was not difficult to follow. I have the WeR Envelope Punch Board and so I was familiar with the process of punching, scoring, creasing.

Used Hero Arts stamp for sentiment "Happy Easter" and stamp/die Egg for Eggs.
