How to:
Score the 7″ x 7.5″ piece of white card at 1.5″ on all four sides.

Cut on the four outer score lines, up to the intersecting lines, as shown below. Tape in the edges to make tabs.

Fold and burnish all the score lines.

Apply adhesive to each of the four tabs and adhere them to the inside of the adjacent side to make the box base.

Score the 6-1/16″ x 6-9/16″ piece of card at 1″ on all four sides.

Cut away two of the corner sections on the long side, then make tabs from the remaining corner sections as shown below. Taper the edges of the long tab at the back, and the small tabs at the front.

Adhere the small tabs to the inside of the adjacent sides.

Apply adhesive to the outside of the long tab and adhere to the inside back of the box base – lining the 1″ score line with the top of the base.

Close down the lid to ensure it fits well.

Adhere the paper pieces to the card pieces for the box lid. Adhere the panels to the lid, then adhere the paper panels to the outside of the base.

Cut a 3.5″ stitched circle from white card, and a 3.5″ stitched circle from paper. Adhere them together and then adhere the circle panel to the top of the box.

Adhere the inside paper panels, then fill the box with the sunscreen, after-sun lotion, lip balm, gauze, and band-aids.

Stamp the Aloha! sentiment onto a small strip of paper and adhere to the front of the lid. Decorate the box with die cuts and/or stickers then adhere the Hula Gnome into the centre of the circle panel using foam tape/dots.
