Side Tie Tutorial

Here is the promised side tie tutorial for the 2, 5, 7 10boxes. Only one of my friends last night braved the boxes. Everyone else was very busy making multiple treat tins to fill up to have on hand for hostess and teacher gifts...

So, if you're brave enough to make the box (trust me, they're fun and easy!) You'll score, fold and trim out the piece as outlined in the tutorial on splitcoast.....
However, before you go and adhere it shut you'll fold it flat on the left hand side and insert your slot punch all the way in and punch.

This will punch through the front of the box, and through the side as well.

Then you'll repeat the same step onto the top flap. Then stamp, embellish and assemble the rest of your box as per the directions.

When it comes time to close the box, you'll just run ribbon through the slot punch and tie it on the side. Voila, quick and easy!
If you make me one, be sure to send me a link, I'd LOVE to see the side tie in action!
