this fantastic video tutorial by Tanya Bell. I just needed to add the decoration. Why mess with a great idea - thanks heaps Tanya! Here's a quick summary of the general instructions to make this box. Once you've made a couple, you won't need them & will be making all sorts of sizes.
Note: It's likely the gorgeous bow die, Merry Little Christmas stamp & DSP used here WON'T be available after 31 January when the Holiday Catalogue ends, so please order them before then if you'd like them :-)
Basic Box Instructions
Cut card/paper Size: 12 x 12 inch sheet (30.5 x 30.5cm)
Finished box size: 5 1/8 x 5 1/8 x 2 3/4 inches (13 x 13 x 7cm)
1. Score & punch card at 4 inches on all 4 sides (using score line ruler), then turn over card & score & punch again at 4 inches. (blue lines in diagram). Normally you wouldn't need to turn-over the card like this, but this box needs a longer score than can be done in one step.
2. Line up each score line with score guide (not ruler) & score/punch another score line on each side (green lines in diagram).
3. Cut lines to form box tabs (shown in diagram).
4. Fold in box sides & adhere, then box bottom. Top flap folds inside box.
This diagram shows the cut line (red) & score lines (green & blue) - click on pic for larger version.
Thanks for visiting & let me know if you have any questions about the box instructions or anything else. I have to take a break now, so I'll share the final class project next post.
