Xyron and Heidi Swapp Blog Hop

Today is the final day for the Xyron and Heidi Swapp Blog hop - and we have had so much fun creating with these great products!  If you have missed any of the projects, be sure to see them all on the Xyron Blog and the Heidi Swapp Blog!

I have a tea bag dispenser to share with you today.  The original tutorial can be found here, but I changed the dimensions a little bit, so that the scoring is more user friendly.

Cut a piece of red cardstock 6 x 12".  Line the paper up on a Scor-Pal with the short edge against the left side.  Score at 3", 5 3/4", 8 3/4" and 11 1/2".  Turn the paper so the short edge is at the top, and the long edge is against the left fence of the board.  Score at 1", and at 1 3/4" - ONLY IN THE 2ND BLOCK.

Trim the papers as shown.

Cut patterned paper to decorate the sides of the box.
(2) 2 3/4" x 4 3/4"
2 1/2" x 4 3/4"
2 1/2" x 3 7/8"

Run the patterned paper through the 5" Creative Station, and adhere to the cardstock base. Use the Xyron Double Sided tape to assemble the box.

To make a lid, cut a piece of cardstock 4 1/2" x 4 3/4".  Score at 3/4" on all four sides.  Trim the flaps and adhere using the Xyron Adhesive Dots.

Decorate the top with patterned papers.
3 x 2 3/4"
(2) 1/2" x 2 3/4"
(2) 1/2" x 3"

Cut a 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" piece of cardboard for the base and decorate using the Heidi Swapp Embellishments. Adhere the box to the base using the Double Sided Tape.  Decorate with ribbons and other embellishments as desired
