The patterned paper I used is from a paper stack I got on clearance last January. ;-) The key is to glue the patterned paper to your matboard before you cut anything out. (I like to use Glue 'n Seal.) That way the score blades in the die will cut through your outer paper layer and allow you to properly bend at the scores without it tearing:
Fold it up and glue the tabs with a strong, quick grabbing glue. (I love using Api's Crafter's Pick. It will hold anything!) I clamped everything in place while the glue set up – it doesn't take long. You could also punch holes through the tabs and end panels and hold them in place with brads.
That's it! Once the glue is dry you can fill it with goodies and you are ready to go. I also made a quick tag using the Kitchen Labels set from the line. Easy peasy yet it really dresses up your gift. Be sure to check out Eileen Hull's blog – many more quick and easy projects are being featured this month and you are sure to be inspired!
