permanent tape runner
To make the box, start by scoring vertically at 2, 5, 7, and 10 inches. Turn (either way) and score horizontally at 1.5 inches. Refer to the template; fold on the solid lines and cut on the dash lines. I fold in all bottom flaps except the piece closest to the side flap and add my tape runner to those two pieces only. Line up, adhere and presto! you have a tote box! Attach a handle and embellish a bit if you like.
I embellished with Distress Ink (brushed corduroy), pink rhinestones, clear sticker, quilled flower, word stamp, brass brads.
If you need to put something in the box taller than the handle, attach the handle with brads so you can move it back and forth out of the way. And below, I used a piece of the handle for a matching tag.
Have a safe, delicious and wonderful Thanksgiving Day and long weekend!
