It’s the time of year again…the school year is coming to a close.  My little girls have two days left and that means I need some teacher gifts!  

A couple weeks ago I went through and sorted TONS of cards and got them ready for gift giving. But what to give them IN? That’s where my 1/16″ Rule of Box Making comes in!

View the video to see how I figured out the size of my box, how to cut the paper, how to score and how to put this great gift-giving box together.

  • Top of the box:  8-9/16″ x 9-13/16″ – score at 2″ on all four sides
  • Bottom of the box: 8-1/2 x 9-3/4 – score at 2″ on all four sides
  • The top is always 1/16″ BIGGER than the bottom.
  • Score on all four sides the same measurement and your box will fit together perfectly every time!
