Good Morning everyone, Well heres the project that I previewed on my facebook page ( facebook.com/suzymakes) as I was quite pleased with the way they turned out. I tried for ages to work out the measurements for each box and I did it in the end. The boxes are detachable from each other i have only stacked them and added ribbon to hold them together wouldnt this be a lovely gift for someone? I added on a couple of extra bows and i think it worked as i didnt know whether to add a sentiment or not.
With the boxes I used Perpetual Birthday Calendar Photopolymer Stamp Set with the Crisp Cantaloupe set i stamped the sunburst type of style stamp on both the bases(whisper white cardstock) and lids of the boxes and used the free ribbon from the best year ever accessory set that is a sale-a-bration promotion. Then with the Coastal Cabana set I used the stars from the stamp set and stamped them in the Coastal Cabana Classic Stampin’ Pad and the lid was made from the free cardstock in the sale-a-bration promotion Irresistibly yours which has the lovely epoxy deign on it so you can see it in the light which also had stars on, again the ribbon is from the best year ever free accessory pack. How brilliant is that?…that you can make all of this with free products. Remember sale-a-bration is only on until the end of march so dont miss out. Also the 2013/2015 in colours are leaving us this year so that is Crisp Cantaloupe, coastal cabana, baked brown sugar, pistachio pudding and strawberry slush so if any of these are your favourite you better stock up now!!
So heres the measurements for you in both metric and imperial.
Box 1 the largest
Base 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ (13.9cm x 13.9cm) score at 1 1/2″ (3.8cm) on all four sides. For the lid 4 9/16″ x 4 9/16″ (11.5cm x 11.5cm) and score at 1″ (2.5cm) on all four sides.
Box 2 middle size box
Base 5″ x 5″ (12.7cm x12.7cm) and score at 1 1/2″ (3.8cm) on all four sides. For the lid 4 1/16″ x 4 1/16″ (10.3cm x 10.3cm) and score at 1″ (2.5cm) on all four sides.
Box 3 the smallest
Base 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ (11.4cm x 11.4cm) score at 1 1/2″ (3.8cm) on all four sides. For the lid 3 9/16″ x 3 9/16″ (9cm x 9cm) score at 1″ (2.5cm) on all four sides.
Once you have folded your score lines cut into each tab on all the bases and lids to form the tabs you will use to adhere when putting them together.
Easy as that but oh so pretty!!
Have fun making your own.
