WICKED Haiku box

This month's WICKED stamper is the fabulous Lyssa Zwolanek. Like me, she is a big Gone with the Wind fan, and I got to meet her in April 2008 in Milwaukee.
One of her WICKED projects is her Haiku box. She named it after one of the designer papers SU used to offer. Her box is 3X3, and you can find her directions on her blog. I've also put her directions into a PDF document that you can download.
I'm not a 3X3 fan, so I modified her box to hold standard-sized cards. My finished box is 5X6. For my box, you need a 10X12 piece of cardstock. Along the 10" side, score at 1", 2", 8" and 9". Along the 12" side, score at 2", 3", 8" and 9". Cut the box and put it together just like Lyssa's. (Her photos are excellent!) The one negative to my box is that the flap doesn't quite meet the bottom edge of the box, so I added a scallop edge to hide that. My piece of ribbon is 21" long. The DSP on the flap is 1 3/4" X 5 3/4", and the scallop piece was 1 1/2" X 6" before I scalloped the edge.
Happy stamping!
