sticky note holder and gift box

Today I have a tutorial over on the Scor-Pal blog.  The DT is updating some of the older tutorials and I recently revised the Sticky Note Holder and Gift Box tutorial with a few alterations in the measurements and directions.

Sticky Note Holder & Gift Box

By Diane Zechman

Adapted from tutorial by Bridgett Owens


Scor-Pal, Scor-Tape

Paper cutter


Sticky Note pad

papers, ribbon, etc. to embellish

stamps and ink, if desired (Sweet ‘n Sassy- Winter Girls used here)

Note Holder:

2 pieces of 3 ½” x 3 ½” chipboard

1 piece of 3 ¼” x 6 ¾” cardstock or heavy patterned paper

2 pieces of 4 ½” x 4 ½” patterned paper

Gift Box:

1 piece of 4 ¾” x 10 ¼” cardstock

Sticky Note Holder

Step 1: Align the 3 ¼” x 6 ¾” cardstock along the left fence and score the 6 ¾” side @ 3 ¼” and 3 ½”.  Fold and crease scored lines.  Set aside.

Step 2: Apply Scor-Tape to one side of each of the chipboard pieces.  Center each chipboard square onto the back side of the 4 ½” patterned paper.  Miter the corners and secure the sides down with additional Scor-Tape. 

Step 3: Apply Scor-Tape to one side of your cardstock up to the first score line and center it onto one chipboard square. Repeat this process for the other chipboard cover.

Step 4: Adhere sticky note pad to the inside and decorate as desired.

Gift Box

Step 5: Align cardstock along the left fence and score the 10 ¼” side @ 1/2” and 9”.

Step 6: Slide the cardstock over so the left side is at the 1/8” mark.  Score @ 4 ¼” and 5 ½”.

Step 7: Turn the cardstock 90 degrees and score @ 3”. 

Step 8: Using scissors, cut the vertical score lines up to the horizontal score line.  Remove the small rectangular section at the bottom left.  Then trim the 2 largest flaps to 1 ¼” wide.  This will create the box bottom.  You will now have four flaps.

Step 9: Fold and crease all scored lines.  Adhere patterned paper layers to the front side, if desired.

Step 10: Turn the paper over.  Fold both sides in, adhering together  with Scor-Tape to form the box.

Step 11: Fold bottom flaps in one at a time, applying Scor-Tape to adhere the flaps shut.

Step 12:  Decorate as desired.  The gift box will hold 1 or 2 Sticky Note Holders.
