Scallop envelope box

Remember my post about my upline's meeting where she let us use the Big Shot? Well, I FINALLY got my box put together. It is so cute! It uses 4 scalloped envelopes.
Here are the 4 envelopes cut from designer paper. I used dimensionals to stick down the scalloped envelope flaps.
The next step is to fold in the side flaps and adhere the flaps to each other. (Sorry I don't have a picture of that; I was having camera issues.)

Here is a view of the inside of the box. After this picture, I adhered the flaps to the inside of the box.
The last step is to fold in the bottom pieces like you're closing a cardboard box. I put a 3 3/16" square of cardstock in the bottom. You can add a handle to create a basket. On the SU site, a demonstrator used it as a Post-It note holder, so I decided to do that.

The box is 3 1/4" square and 2 1/4" tall.

Happy stamping!
