Today I am working with Samantha's stunning Leafy Round Top Box
and the FREE file that is being offered for this hop too!  

This box is easy to put together, but it looks like you spent hours!
Here's the tutorial:
1.  Cut out the Leafy Round Top Box and the mats. Fold the box on all the score lines.
2.  Adhere the mats to the coordinating areas.  Note:  You can use this box without the mats too!
3.  Place adhesive on the side tab of the box and adhere it to the other side.
4.  Pop the box up to form its shape and push the bottom flap up.
5.  Tuck the two side flaps in, placing the tab under the bottom flap as shown.
6.  Push the top flap down and tuck the tab into the bottom flap.
7.  Your box should look similar to this now.  I used a brown chalk in to ink the edges to give mine a more rustic look.
8.  Next cut out your pieces from the FREE file.  I am also using a leaf from Samantha's Fall Leaves Bag.  I did a release compound path and ungroup to remove the leaf shape from the bag top.  I inked my leaf and the banner pieces.
9.  Adhere the banner pieces together as shown.
10. Place the two small pieces of banner on the banner mat.
11. Use a foam adhesive to adhere the leaf to the center.
12. Fill your box with goodies...mine will have homemade chocolate chip cookies!  Then close the box with ribbon.  Adhere the banner on the front of the box with foam adhesive!

Super easy and quick, which makes it great for giving multiples!  All that detail will have the recipients thinking your spent hours!

Just click on the icon below to finish up the hop!

Happy Hopping!

You always make things so easy and clear.
Your files are always fun, easy, and I can always count on you to have whatever I am looking for.
