LATCH WRAP BOX

Good Tuesday Tutorial Morning to you. Lisa here.  Happy New Year.
Today I will show you how to make this
LATCH WRAP BOX
Using the adorable digis designed by Laurie Wilson
(for the color image)

(for the sentiment)




Start with your piece of cardstock 8 5/8 x 2 3/8 +1/16 I printed digi paper from the digi LOVING CRITTERS COLOR  onto white cardstock. 

Now Score and fold from left to right on the long side at 1 3/4, 2 1/2+1/16, 6 1/16, 6 7/8, 8 5/8

Place 2 glue dots on the bottom of the box and two on the top of the box (these will adhere but can also be pulled up without leaving much damage to the wrap) then wrap the paper wrap all around to the front. 

Now we are ready to make our latch. 

I printed out my image (I made sure it would fit in my 1 1/2" circle.......as you can see I cut out just part of it to fill the circle and see it better).  I then cut it out using the second from the smallest circle die in the Spellbinders large circles (not grands).  I then embossed it on the cuttlebug too!

To Make the Outter ring.......I just used the 3rd scallop circle from the smallest and the 2nd circle nestability from the smallest (spellbinders dies) put them inside each other and ran them through my cuttlebug then embosssed just the circle in the center. 

After cutting out your ring...flip it over and place dimensional tape pieces only on the top half!

Center the ring on the front and adhere. The dimensional tape should only be on the top half so it will open.

Take your small circle, flip over and place dimensional tape only on the bottom of the circle.

This is a Valentine Latch Wrap Box but you can do this technique with any small box for any occasion.
