Create a pyramid box using design papers...

Hello Everyone!  Ruth here! I have a tutorial today on how to make a pyramid box... 



 I have a bit of a thing for making gift boxes - I make one for each of my team at Christmas and fill with goodies for them (I have quite a large team!) so always on the look-out for something quick and easy to make.  And then, I make extras for other work colleagues who help me out! So yes, I need quite a few!

So I was having a play with some of the Ho Ho Ho 6x6 papers - I glued two together (be careful with patterns!) and then when that was dry, I glued the other two edges together to create a tube.


Glue one side closed as shown - I used clothes pegs to keep it all together!  They have a better 'reach' than bulldog clips and are kinder on the grip!
Whilst waiting for all this glue to dry, I cut some holly leaves using the Holly and Spruce die - I've coloured these leaves with Promarkers to match the leaves on the paper!  I've added them to a tag (Basic Tag dies) cut from a scrap of card and then used some Dew Drops for berries.
I've now held the opposite sides together to create a triangle and punched two holes (I actually used a hole punch as the holes were a perfect spacing) and threaded the red ribbon through with the tag.
 
In total, with drying time, this took about an hour, but I didn't just sit around waiting for the glue to dry - I was productive with my time! 

I hope this inspires you to make your own pyramid boxes!
