an extra long pillow box

On Saturday I attended the Stampin' Up! Regional Seminar in Hamilton (New Zealand) which was an awesome day! I was priviaged to be asked to do a presentation and this was one of the items that I showed how to do. It's done with one cut thru the Big Shot. The key is to fold a piece of card stock in half and place it on the die with the fold as close to the score lines on the die.

Start with a piece of card or DSP like I have used here measuring 19cm x 13.5cm and fold it in half like this. You just want to take the fold up to but never touching the score lines - do you like my faux die! hehe I thought it would be easier to see where the score lines are on it.
Once it's thru the Big Shot it will look like this.

Unfolded it looks like this
and then once you adhere the long edge it will end up like this. Although it's a bit hard to see you will of cause have a fold line in it about where my horrible finger is! lol
The best idea is to cover the fold with a ribbon, a belly band or whatever you like.
Tomorrow I will have another version of the pillow box die!
