Christmas Stocking Box Tutorial.

Stocking Box Supplies (all Stampin UP):
~Cherry Cobbler 8.5 X 11 paper
~Old Olive paper 8.5 X 11 paper
~Holly Jolly 12 X 12 Paper
~Whisper White 8.5 X 11
~Early Espresso ink and marker

I found the idea for this craft on Papertery Ink and I think they are super cute. I plan to make a bunch of this for Christmas and fill them with goodies.

To make these I started with a piece of Cherry Cobbler (I think this is one of my new favorite colors) cut to 9 14/16" X 3 10/16" , I then scored it with my scor pal at 3 9/16" and 6 1/4" If you are using the score pal there is an arrow at the 3 10'16" mark, to make it easy I scored one side and then flipped it and scored the other side.

Then going length wise I scored it a 1/2" in on both edges.

Next I cut little slits so I could fold them up.

And then uses my ATG gun to add some adhesive.
Next using the template I cut 2 stocking pieces out of the cherry cobbler and 2 out of the Holly Jolly paper, and I cut the toe and heel parts out of old olive.  Last I cut a piece of whisper white to 3 10/16" x 1 1/4" for the top of the stocking, and a piece of holly jolly to 3 10/16" X 1/2" for the loop.  Before I assembled everything I inked the edges and drew stitches, and there you have a cute little stocking box.
