Flower Pot Box Directions

Many of you have asked for directions for my Flower Pot Box and I'm sorry that I didn't get around to posting it sooner, but here it is....

-Start w/ a piece of cardstock 6"x 11"
-Score on the 11" side at 1 1/2" and 4 1/2"
IMPORTANT: DO NOT score above the 4 1/2" line you just made. The top 1 1/2" will make your flaps and you don't want score lines in them. :)
-Score on the 6" side at 1 1/2", 5", 6 1/2" and 10"
-Above that 4 1/2" line I cut diagonal lines starting 1/2" wider than the 3 1/2" sides of the box and cut down to the score line.
-Cut off the top portion of the 1 1/2" sides of the box.
-Cut off the bottom part of the 1" portion--this 1" section will be used only for assembly and will not be seen.
-Fold, glue and decorate... WAH-LAH!! :)


  1. Thank you so much for the directions. I can't wait to try this out! You did a GREAT job!!! I'm so happy that your workshop went well. I also go into panic mode right before every workshop. And I do one every other weekend. I alternate Sat. and Sun. because I have customers that work on Sat. and some that can't make Sundays because of church. I hope you have many more successful workshops!!!

    Check out my blog when you get a chance:
