General Directions
Outside Box Cover:
With 6 1/2" x 12" copy paper, stamp pattern all over with Versamark. Apply chalks at random in desired colors. After all ink has chalk on it, burnish chalks into paper by rubbing in a circular pattern all over paper.
Inside Box Liner:
With 4 7/8" x 10" paper, decorate in similar manner with chalks or stamping.

Making the Outer Box:
Generously apply gluestick to one side of chipboard , and arrange as shown, using a spare piece of chipboard as a spacer between panels.
Trim corners as shown, and "wrap" edges to inside of box cover


Glue liner paper to inside.
At this point, with bone folder, lightly score between panels to make it easier for box to fold.
Now we're ready to make inside boxes and lid. When making boxes with cardstock, use a bone folder to sharpen creases.

While folding  the inside boxes and Lid, if you wish to emboss, stamp, or glue paper to it, do this before making final folds.
A dab of glue will lock final folds into place.
Place inside boxes evenly in steps on each panel
