Handmade Gift Box Tutorial

Happy Friday everyone!
Tasha here sharing a super quick handmade gift box tutorial. This box is one of my favorites and only uses one piece of 12x12 paper to create the base; awesome!

The cute digital stamp used is from Bugaboo Digi Stamps and is perfect for the SBC July Facebook Monthly Challenge (Christmas in July theme)!
