GIFT BOX INSTRUCTIONS
Presented by Barbara Bicknell
Paper: Any choice of 12×12 sheet of designer paper for the lid and a 12×12 piece of card for the base.
Other: Silver Metallic-Edge Ribbon, Lovely Labels Pick a Punch, ¾” Circle punch
12 x 12
On the base card score at 2″ on all 4 sides
For the lid dsp: score at 3/4″ on 4 sides, then place the card on the score board and move a fraction from the left edge and score 2″ on 4 sides, (this allows for the lids to be slightly larger than the base so it will fit over. If you watch the video below you will see what I mean.
If using a scorer on the paper trimmer, then score at 3/4″ and 1 15/16th” on 3 sides
8 x 8″
1. Take the scored base card and cut up to the scoreline on each opposite corner.
2. Watch this video by Sam Hammond Donald https://pootles.co.uk/2018/02/11/springwatch-2018-4-cube-box-tutorial-with-reinforced-lid-using-sweet-soiree/ it is so much easier to see how this is done rather than try and describe it. This example is made from a 12×12 but she made a 4″ box so you are doing the same thing but scoring at 2″ not 4″ and getting therefore a much larger box.
