Marvy Uchida Clever Lever Punch – 3” Oval (purple) #30028766

Place the solid 2 1/2” x 11” cardstock onto the MSC Score Board with the 11” edge along the top of the board. Score at the following measurements: 2 1/2”, 5”, 7 1/2” and 10”.

Crease at each scored line and fold into a box and tape the 1” end tab to the inside of the box.

Use the 2 1/2” Scallop circle punch and punch out four circles from the four 3 1/2” cardstock squares. Fold these in half and tape half the circle to the inside of the box and have the other half come over the edge for the “basket liners”

For the basket handles, take the 3” x 4” cardstock and punch out a 2 1/2” oval, centering as best as possible. Take the 3” oval punch and flip it over so that you can see where to punch. Center the punch area over the punched out oval. Punch and you should have an oval “frame”. Cut it in half to create the two basket handles.  Fold over about 1/4” on each end and tape to the inside of the box on two opposite sides.

Take the 1” x 3 1/2” cardstock strips and place on the MSC Score Board with 3 1/2” edge along the top. Score at the 1/2” and 3” marks.

Place the strips inside the top of the box and tape the 1/2” sections to the sides. These create a base for embellishments inside of the box.

Finishing -

Arrange your stamped images, stickers or other embellishments as you desire along the center two strips. Test to see if the embellishments aren’t damaged when the card folds flat, otherwise adjust their position. Adhere with double stick tape, glue dots and /or Pop Up dots.
