Wow, have you seen what the DT are producing!
You can either construct something from scratch or repurpose/change something into a receptacle to hold something useful or pretty or both but there are so many tutorials and ideas out there I am sure you will be able to create many more wonderful things!
The TWIST is.......
.....show us how the box was made!
Show progress photos and add tips - make a photo journal of it!
Our Sponsor for this challenge is:
an Australian on-line store who are offering a $15 Gift Voucher on the on-line store!
Here is my photo journal for a gift box containing four tea lights. (This is being scheduled, so I hope it goes live at the right time!)
This box comes from Patricia Belsey who put the instructions for making this up on a Facebook group I belong to - her instructions were a bit hard to follow but she took a photo of the card marked up prior to construction and cutting and added that and I used that as the main instruction.
This is her completed box
Her dimensions are:
6 1/8" x 9 3/4"
Score on long side at 1/2", 3 5/8", 5 1/8", 8 1/4"
short side at 1 1/2" and 4 5/8"
Die cut on score lines 8 1/4 and 6 1/8
this is her measurement sheet
Die is from SU Chalk Talk - smallest framelit
Fold up score lines and turn in tabs to add the red tape/glue
If adding cellophane/ascetate windows - this is the time to do it,not retrospectively, as I did it!
Start from first window end, and make a box by folding in the tabs
Middle window is a fold line/crease line/hinge line for the box top
You can see I got the tape in the wrong place! My prototype is made using SU DP which is OK but a stronger card would make a stronger box. Double sided card works well.
This size takes 8 tea lights. I just used four. I added washi tape around them to match the DP.
Decorate as you wish - I did stick down the flappy bits a bit more later as well!
It was at this point that I decided that I needed acetate windows retro-fitted and I added a button too. You could wrap a ribbon, or make a belly band.
You could put food in this or sweeties!
So, a box! Lets see what is happening over
