Triangle Box Tutorial

What you will need:
-paper trimmer
-stylus or score blade
-4" x 8" neutral card stock
-hand-held circle punch
-15" of ribbon

1-cut card stock 4" x 8".
2-With the 8" side against the trimmer, score at 4" (middle).
3-Turn card stock so the 4" side is against the trimmer. Make a little mark at 2" at the top and the bottom. This will show you where the middle is.
4- Position the card stock so that the top middle is at the score line on the trimmer and the middle is at the score line of the trimmer. This will be a diagonal. Score from top to middle. Do this on all 4 sides.

I have marked in black where your score lines are. Your card stock will look like this.

5-Random stamp the whole surface of your card stock.
6-Fold the scored edges inward.

7-Take your hole punch and punch through all 4 layers at the top.
8-Pass your ribbon through the holes and tie.
9-You can add a tag, if you like.

Your finished triangle box should look like this!
I put 2 doggie treats in mine and gave it to my neighbor (for her dogs).
