Hello again everyone,
It’s Joann here again and I am delighted to show you another fun little box to make. I got the idea from a candy box that I was given that had sides that opened up so you could almost fold the box flat. Well, I got out my trusty little craft knife and took it apart to see how it was put together : )
and here it is open
To make this fun little box follow these simple steps:
Score at 2 ¼, 4 ¼, 7 ¾, 9 ¾ , and 11 ¾
Flip to the other edge and score at 2 ¾, 4 ¾, 7 ¼, and 9 ¼
Trim off the extra pieces to leave the final shape as shown
To round the flaps so the box will open and close I simply took an oval die and traced the shape and fussy cut the flap.
To make the flaps on the top of the box a little nicer I took my die and placed the flap through as shown and then run this part through your machine far enough to cut the die.
Finish the inside by adding DP before you assemble the box
I distressed the edges of the outside of the box before decorating with more pretty DP
Thanks so much for visiting my blog and I hope you can come back and visit again soon!
