Get Better Soon - Core'dinations Gift Box

Do you have a friend, family member, or co-worker suffering from cold and flu season? Check out this project I made for Coredinations....a Get Well Soon box made from a few basic Core'dinations supplies and filled with goodies to have them feeling better in no time.

Step 1: Trace box template onto white Core'dinations cardstock.  The 110lb cardstock has a nice weight and will create a sturdy box.  If you want something a little more heavy duty, you can add a layer of thin chipboard or shirt board.  Score along inside lines.  I added a bit of washi tape to hold my template while I cut.

Around here we haven't suffered too terribly this season.  I hope you have been just as lucky.
