TECHNIQUE TUESDAY - DEEP 4" CUBE BOX
Good afternoon crafting friends
I love the size of this box and intend to make numerous more for my craft studio
I watched the originator, Sam Hammond Donald, make hers on YouTube
You will need a sheet of 12"x12" card and/or a sheet of 12"x12" paper/card for the lid
I have used card for both lid and bottom
Score on all 4 sides at 1" and 4"
*see tip below before scoring
TIP: when scoring paper or card for a lid double a piece of card stock (as shown below, and hold it right beside the edge of your score board, butt the card/paper to it then score. Repeat that on all 4 sides
You'll achieve a better fitting lid following the above
I'm using double side paper for this box and the underside shows the score lines more clearly
Remove all the boxes marked with a X
Remember to mitre the sides and remove a chunk from all 4 tabs as shown below
Add adhesive to the outside of the 4 tabs
Adhesive on the outside of the tabs
Assemble the lid
Remember to mitre the tabs on the box base then assemble
I've add a white tab on the box front in readiness for labeling
I used adhesive tape to assemble the box but need to add white glue to the right side of the lid - you can see I've not applied the adhesive tape to the edge of the card
NB yesterday Lyn H asked me the name of the paper I used on the fancy fold card. It's a 12"x12" Hobbycraft paper pad named 'Sparkle and Shine'
Today's cardstock is also a 12"x12" paper pad by Hobbycraft named
