Pencil Holder Gift Box

With two young kids, it seems I am always in need of gifts! I created this box to hold pencil and pens as a teacher gift. Using Wonderfilm with a circle punch makes this tag an easy embellishment to the box. I punch four small circles attached them to each side of the tag and then sprinkled them with Glitter Glitz in four coordinating colors!
Supplies:
Glitter - Glitz in Soft Green, Chartreuse, Crimson, and Gold (P K Glitz)
Adhesive - Wonderfilm (P K Glitz)
Paper - Apple Cider (Imaginisce)
Ribbon - Apple Cider (Imaginesce)
Punch: Scallop Flower Maker and Circle Maker(Creative Memories)
To create this box, cut chipboard to 11 3/4" x 8 1/2" then score at 1 1/2", 3 1/2", 5 7/8", 7 7/8", and 10 1/4".  Turn chipboard and score at 1 1/2" from the bottom edge.  Cut from the bottom edge up to the 1 1/2" score mark to form 6 tabs.  Fold all the edges in (some will overlap each other, but it keeps the box strong) and use a strong adhesive to hold it all together!

This is a great idea! And I love that you used paper that isn't the traditional "teacher" type of paper! (that is just the opinion of a former teacher! lol!!)
