***Reminder to join in my Giveway*** (check sidebar)
Today I have a little gift box I made for a friend a couple of months ago. It was made with Graphic 45 Botanical Tea, (which is my fav paper from G45), I also used Botanical Tea Stamp.
I got the box idea from mummylade.blogspot which was inspired by Lene Katrine. I made mine a little bigger so I did my own measurements. I will give those to you in case you all want to make one. I really liked this box once I got a handle on the measurements it turned out really pretty.
So I am going to show you the picture of my finished creation first than I will give you pictures of the measures and how to put it together. There will be a lot pictures. (sorry)
My finished gift box - I placed a couple of tea bags in the box for her.
***This is the front view
***I crated a flap that opens up
***I decorated the inside of the flap with the Botanical Tea tag showing. Added TH vintage photo and smooch paints to the wooden cup, Also attached a little rose and butterflies in the bottom corners as they connect with a magnet to close securely.
Now on to the pictures with the measurements and how to put it together. Please remember this is not my design of the box I cased it from Mummylade.blogspot and she was inspired by Lene Katrine, I give full credit to them for this beautiful design. :D Also remember if you have any questions please leave me a message in the comment box. If you go to Mummylade's blog go to Templates and she has a template that shows you the same design as my photo.
Picture 1 - Paper is 8x8 scored at 3/4; score @ 1 5/8; score @ 2 1/2. After you score measure from the edge of your paper go passed the 3 score lines and mark at 2 1/2 with a pencil. Do this on each end of the paper, that is where you are going to cut in order to get the diagonal cuts for your box.
Picture 2 - fold on score lines towards the inside of the box.
Picture 3 - Only glue down three of the flaps
Picture 4 - This is going to be your cover. Just measure the one end of the box that is not glued down and that will give you a start for how long you want the cover to be, don't forget the little tab you need for closing in the front of the box.
Picture 5 - After you score your cover to match the flap you can glue them together.
Picture 6 - Picture shows how to glue them to get the cover on. (end to end)
