Dotty For You (Blog Hop)

Welcome to You Can Create and the Dotty For You Blog Hop.

Thanks for joining me from {Amy McVey's} lovely site, Clearly Stamping.

Dotty For You is a promotion CTMH created just for National Scrapbooking Month.  When you place an order of $35 or more in products from the Spring/Summer 2012 Idea Book between April 17 and May 31, you may add the Dotty for You paper packet, valued at $19.95, for just $5.  This paper pack is MORE than worth it!

Close To My Hearts double sided card stock paper is PERFECT for this treat box!

This box may look complicated, but it is not. I used a sheet of 12 x12 paper for my box, but you can use any size square that you'd like.

For a 12x 12 sheet of paper score a line from top to bottom at 4 inches and at 8 inches.  Rotate your paper once to the left and repeat the score lines at 4 and 8 inches.  You will have created a tic-tac-toe grid on your paper. In order to fold your box together, you will have to score on the diagonal each of the 4 corner squares.

This is what my box looks like open ( after I embellished it) .  The mattes are 3.75 inches square.

I hole punched in each of the corners and then threaded CTMH ribbon through and tied the box closed.

These projects were also created with the Dotty For You Paper Pack (See links for previous blog posts):
