First, I grabbed these supplies from Scrapbook Adhesives: Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/2in, 3D Foam Squares White MixE-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser and E-Z Runner® Grand Permanent Dots Refill. I also used a 12X12 sheet of green and red cardstock and patterned paper with matching embellishments.

Hinged Gift Box Basics

Cut the green cardstock in half to create two 6 x 12-inch pieces for two boxes. But we have to do one more step before scoring the lines. That is to cut an inch off the long side to create a 6 x 11-inch piece. Now we’re ready to proceed 🙂

On the 6-inch side, score at 1-inch and 5-inch.

On the 10-inch side, score at 1, 5, 6 and 10-inch.

With the paper facing horizontally I then cut all of the horizontal lines UP TO the vertical score marks on each side to create tabs.

Once I completed the cuts on both sides I then folded along all of the score lines:

Next, I placed a small piece of the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/2in along all of the tabs.  This is the part where you will want to use a heavy-duty tape to reinforce the edges of your box.

We have now created two 4 x 4 x 1-inch boxes!

Finishing Touches

Finally, I used the E-Z Runner® Grand Permanent Dots and added squares of red cardstock to the tops of the boxes. I used the 3D Foam Squares to attach the squares of patterned paper to the red cardstock.  Embellishments were also added with the 3D Foam Adhesive Squares.
