It is a perfect little box to use for a gift, but I was a bit worried it would get damaged when just made out of paper so I made a chipboard version. A few other people mentioned they would like it to be a bit more sturdy so I made another one and will walk you trough all the steps. Enjoy and please share your projects with us :)
2 covers 6" x 6"
1 spine 3"x 6"
4 box pieces 2 7/8" x 4"
Step 2. pick out your paper, ribbon and some embellishments
Step 4. Attach the paper you picked out for the covers, and make sure they are not upside down and of course mirrored as shown ( I almost had balloons floating the wrong way haha )
to 4 3/4" x 6". Attach your spine in the center as shown.
Step 6. attach your covers on each side of the spine leaving about an 1/8" between your spine and your cover as you will have be able to make it bend.
Step 8. Cover the inside of the covers with the pattern paper of your choice and the outside of your box is now done.
Step 10. Close the ring and you should have a bottomless box with strips on the inside as shown.
Step 12. Cover the inside with the pattern paper of your choice.
The center is about 3 7/8" x 3 7/8" and the sides are about 2 3/4" x 3 7/8" but always measure to be safe.
I used 4 pieces of 2 7/8" x 4"
Step 14. Go nuts on the embellishments and make this the best gift box ever!!!
I hope this was clear enough for all you lovely people if not just ask and i will do my best to help you all out :)
If you will excuse me know i got a few more to make as I have decided to give some away with Christmas filled with cookies;)
Have fun... and scrap on.
