TUESDAY TUTORIAL - FOLD UP GIFT BOX

Good morning bloggers, crafty friends and visitors....

This gift box can serve so many uses depending on what papers/card you choose to use.  I'm going to keep one on my desk and put post-it notes in it.  I'll have another on my work table with.... Wurthers original inside. I love these LOL


There is a video but unfortunately I was not able to edit it very well so I will have to call in reinforcements and will let you know when it's published!






 cut 2 pieces of card 6" x 9"

2  score both pieces at 3" - the card should now look like this....


add adhesive below the score line and adhere to other piece of card - it should now look      like this....

I've held it together with a paperclip but you can see what I mean


this is now the base for the box

now add your papers to the top, spine and, should you wish, to the underneath

5  if you are using ribbon as a closure adhere it to the inside now to that the papers will              conceal it

6  finish adhering the papers to the inside

7  now to make the box

8  you need a piece of card 10" x 10"

9  score at 3" and 7"

10  turn paper a quarter turn and score again at 3" and 7"


this is not to scale
11  cut all 4 corners to the first score line as shown on the red card below                                           


12  cut at an angle on the corner to enable the tabs to adhere nicely in the box


13  apply glue to all 4 tabs and adhere to the box


14  add your papers to the box and then decorate the top of the box as you wish





 

Until tomorrow....
