Bad planning as it looks like its going to be a scorcher today!
These boxes are deceptively easy to make and I will be showing how to decorate them for different occasions.
Step by step:
Lay A4 card landscape position,
mark horizontal line across centre of card at 10.5cm from lower edge.
mark vertical lines at 7, 14, 21 & 28 cm.
Score across horizontal centre line from left edge across to 21cm vertical line (across 3 panels but leave 4th unscored - this 4th panel will be stand up back panel)
Score all lower vertical lines up to centre line, cut upper vertical lines above centre line to top edge.
At 28cm line, cut away small panel above centre horizontal line, and on lower small panel cut a diagonal line from centre horizontal line to outer right edge approx 1.5cm down from centre line to create flap.
Fold along all creases & fix flap to inside of box with strong glue or tape. Fold flaps out
Cut 2 - 3 strips of card 2cn x 10cm. Mark on the long edge at 1.5cm & 8.5cm & score on these lines, folding the 2 end flaps in opposite directions to create a 'Z' shape. Fix these strips inside the top edge of the box, just below the upper edge, a few cm apart.
Cut small strips of acetate, fix upright to the cross pieces at different heights & fix embellishment to acetate strips
Decorative paper panels are 6.5 cm x 9cm
