Directions:

For box:
1. For the base, cut a piece of dark blue cardstock to 9 x 9 inches.
2. Place the cardstock in the upper left corner of the Scoring Board. Score at 2 1/2 inches and then 6 1/2 inches. Turn the paper 90 degrees and repeat.
3. Cut the score lines on two opposing sides of the cardstock up to the center scored square. Fold the corner squares in and secure with double-sided tape.
4. For the lid, cut a piece of light blue cardstock to 7 x 7 inches.
5. Align the cardstock to the 1/16 inch mark on the Scoring Board. Score at 1 1/2 inches and then 5 5/8 inches. Turn the paper 90 degrees and repeat.
6. Center and punch the Starry Sky all-over punch in the middle of the lid as shown. Tip: Align the flat corners of the punch so that the magnets snap together properly.
7. Cut the score lines on two opposing sides of the cardstock up to the center scored square. Fold the corner squares in and secure with double-sided tape. Finish by tying a piece of bakers twine around the lid.

For Party card:
1. Cut a piece of light blue cardstock to 5 x 10 inches. Score and fold in half for a 5 x 5 inch finished card.
2. Unfold the card and use the Starry Sky all-over punch to punch randomly across the front of the card leaving space across the top for the small banner. TIp: It may be helpful to turn the punch upside down and slide the cardstock over to make sure you do not overlap the punched design.
3. Punch the letters “party” using the Alphabet punches and some stars using the Starry Sky punch from yellow cardstock.
4. Arrange and adhere the stars and letters on blue bakers twine with glue as shown. Drape the banner across the top of the card and adhere using foam dots behind the stars. Tape the ends to the back of the card.
