All you need is Sherry's template, a Scor-pal (optional of course), scissors, and glue.
Ok, this was my first attempt, using double-sided cardstock from K&Co. The yellow box bottom was supposed to be a contrasting insert for the flowered box, but it turned out to be too big to fit inside. But as I always say, no mistakes in stamping, right?! Waste not! I just made a regular lid for it to be it's own little gift box.
I just LOVE how the box on the left opens - that's why I fell in love with them. Something completely different and unique from what I've seen! Of course with the double-sided cardstock, a contrasting insert isn't necessary anyway.
Here's my second one. After tweaking the measurements slightly, this one came together nicely.
And here's the open view, WITH a contrasting insert.
These boxes are approximately a 2" square. Ever-so-tiny but great for candies, money, jewelry, etc. I do plan to make some larger versions. Like cupcake size. Not that I make/give cupcakes as gifts, but that's the size I'd like to make.
Thanks for stopping by today, Tootles!
