Last week during the First Fridays Blog Hop, I shared a box that would fit 4-5 cards & envelopes. Today I have another box and the directions so that you can recreate it yourself!
It really is a very easy project to create! I chose to use card stock for the bottom of the box and Foil Frenzy Designer Series Paper for the top but you could certainly use card stock for both pieces.
The measurements you’ll need are below. Please pay special attention to the bottom of the box!
Top of the Box: 6″ x 7-1/2″ score all sides @ 3/4″
Bottom of the Box: 6-1/2″ x 8″ score all sides @ 1″ In order for the top of the box to fit properly, you will need to cut just a smidge off of two sides (approx 1/16″) that touch each other. I personally don’t measure it. Doing this step will ensure that the top will fit nicely over the bottom of the box.
The directions are the same for creating the top and bottom, just the measurements are different. After you’ve scored your paper, it should look like this.
The next step is to cut on the score lines as indicated. You’ll also cut a sliver off of each tab (both sides of the tab).
This picture shows how much I took off all the tabs.
Now you’ll add adhesive on the tabs. I used Tear and Tape but you could also use Fast Fuse. I don’t recommend using Snail – your box will fall apart.
Now, bring the tabs up to create the sides of the box.
Repeat on each corner. It will look like this on the inside.
I think you’ll find this box very easy to put together! The directions may not make sense until you actually are making it.
I wrapped the box up with 3/8″ Soft Sky Classic Weave Ribbon. The sentiment is from the stamp set, Beautiful Bouquet and was cut out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits. I used the new Sunburst punch to cut a piece of Soft Sky card stock and glued the sentiment on top.
The Foil Frenzy Designer Series Paper has been very popular and with good reason. It is gorgeous! If you have been thinking about purchasing it, I would do it sooner rather than later as its on the low inventory list which means it could go on backorder soon.
I love hearing from you so if you have a question or thought about today’s project, please leave a comment!
