May Arts Ribbon and Coredination hop

It's time for another awesome team up hop with May Arts Ribbon and Core'dinations.
The May Arts design team are sharing inspiration all week long and you have a chance to win some goodies too.  If you haven't yet, spot by the May Arts Ribbon blog HERE for all the details.

For my post I went all festive with the holidays sneaking up on us.
A little holiday house gift box.
This box was easy to make and once assembled, easy to decorate with wonderful May Arts Ribbon.
First to start cut a piece of core'dination cardstock to 9" x 11"
Score the piece at 3" and 6" on the short side and 4" and 7" on the long side.
crease the score lines really good and then fold the box to form a "house" like so below.
Use double sided tape to adhere the folded creased pieces inside of the box to the two longer sides.  You can see this in the picture below.  Then cut the triangular top on the two long sides.  Start at the corner where the two sides meet and end in a point in the top middle.
The last step in to add a top for your house box by cutting a strip of paper to be 4" x 3 1/4" and creased down the middle.
I decorated m house with May Arts Adhesive Scallop Boarder around the top.  Added a cute little puffy heart from the Satin Cut Outs collection and ten tied it up all pretty with some Bakers Twine.

This would be cute to put little toys in or a gift card to give as a gift or to even place them on a table for a holiday party.  Simple to make, with not a lot of supplies and super adorable.
I hope you enjoyed what I created with awesome May Arts Ribbon and cool Core'dinations paper.
Don't forget to stop by the May Arts Ribbon blog to check out all the great inspiration all week and for a chance to win a nice price.

Your little house design is adorable! I love the diamond paper for the roof. I try to make little treat boxes for our Christmas party guests and these would be sweet set up as decorations for the party and given out as little parting gifts.
