Cut out the 1/2″ rectangle flap. 2. Place 3 box sections in the embossing folder. Fold the bottom flaps under the embossing folder (so they will stay flat). Run through your Big Shot. Now line up the last box section in the embossing folder, folding the bottom flaps down again. Finger crease all the score lines trying not to flatten your embossing. 3. Flatten the embossing on the 1/2″ side flap. Lay the outside side up and put Tear & Tape on the side flap. 4. Choose which side will be the Front. Turn the box over so the inside side is facing up. Put Tear & Tape alon the fold and edge of the front flap and the side flaps. The back flap does not need tape. 5. Remove the tape backing from the side tab. Lay down and attach to the opposite edge as shown in the video. Now remove the tape backing from the bottom flaps. Fold in the back flap, then the side flaps, then the front flap. Put your Bone Folder inside the box and rub so the Tape sticks well to all the bottom flaps. 6. Stamp the leaf on Whisper White. Use Crushed Curry for the more solid stamp, and Pumpkin Pie ink for the lined stamp. Fussy cut the leaf out. Punch a Starburst from Pumpkin Pie card stock. Attach leaf.
