Welcome Back

 

Today I would like to share a box tutorial with you. I figured this one out for myself and I haven’t seen it elsewhere.

The finished box will look like this;

You Will Need

A4 cardstock

Steel ruler

Scoring tool

Double sided tape

Optional Extra; Scoring board, I used a Scor It board

 

Method

With your card in portrait orientation, score the long sides of your card at 22mm and 188mm 

Rotate your card 90 degrees, your card is now landscape orientation, and looks like this;

Long sides scored

Long sides scored

Score at 114mm, 135mm, 249mm and 270mm.

Your card now looks like this. I have added numbers and letters to help us assemble our box.

The hooles you see in the demo’s box are for a ribbon closure. If you wish to include a ribbon tie closure, punch holes in the panels 1&5. Thread ribbon from the inside to the outside and add a tag.

The Next Step

The demo box was created using plain pearlescent card stock, for a more decorative alternative, use your  favorite craft CDs to create papers themed to your project. Here is a picture of my decorated gift box.

I used plain white card, which I sprayed using Ranger Color Wash spray.

00157p001

I stamped images from Katzelkraft stamps with Adirondack dye ink.

The tag was created using Spellbinders Nestabilities dies. I inked the edges with Adorondack dye ink using a Cut n Dry foam.

Best wishes and thanks for reading.
