Fellow demonstrator, Julie DiMatteo demonstrated a super cute box back in January, and I had to give it a try.
After making this adorable and unique diagonal-lidded box, I decided to challenge myself and adjust the measurements to eliminate wasted paper and cardstock – basically to make this box more doable for a class setting or for someone who wants to make several of them for wedding favors, party gifts, etc. Julie’s box measures 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ x 1-3/8″. My version measures 2-3/8″ x 2-3/8″ x 1″.
After adjusting the measurements, I then used this project idea as a team make-n-take in my February Stampers With ART online gathering and presented these two versions.
I already shared one of those versions (the one with the Lily Impressions designer paper) on March 29th along with its measurements, a product list, and the promise to share a how-to tutorial video soon. Woo hoo! The video is now ready as you will see below! And the second one I shared with my team is shown below in more detailed photos. (I used the Poppy Parade designer paper for that one.)
I made two more smaller boxes using the super festive Birthday Bonanza designer paper, images from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set, and some heat embossing. I demonstrated one of these in my latest Online Paper Crafting Class on Facebook this past Wednesday. Then I uploaded the recording of this class onto my YouTube channel (since I know not everyone is ON Facebook) and shared it here in my blog post. Be sure to watch the video (you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog), scroll through the close-up photos, check out the products list below, and then let me know if you have any questions.
I hope you enjoyed what I shared in this video. Below are measurements, close-up photos, and a product list for the Birthday Bonanza box I demonstrated.
