Tuesday Tutorial Box's
From all the comments on this box I guess I have used a very unpopular die! I have to agree that I regret buying this one as well! I have truly run out of ideas. I did decide, before retiring this die, to post the tutorial because as Heather suggested you could use lots of dies as the front piece!
The measurements are: 10cm x 4cm x10cm x 4cm by 1cm. Score a piece of A4 Core'dinations paper at each of the points mentioned above. Next score 4cm from the top of each long side and place the die in one of the larger panels! see picture
Once die cut (you may have to fold the card to fit it into your die cutting machine) then decide whether you want a square top or a folded bag top.
For a folded bag type score each of the side 4cm panels in the middle at 2cm. Otherwise fold both of the 4cm scores from the top edges and cut away, as seen in the picture) the 4 corners.
Use a piece of acetate, on the reverse, to stick to the die cut to seal the box and stick together!
For folded top stick the sides and bottom leaving the top which you fold by pinching in the sides at the 2cm score lines. This gives you a look like a gift bag, simply punch holes and add handles!
For the fold lid box fold down the top flaps and chose your fastening. I used a bard with a piece of ribbon attached so that I could tie this to a piece attached to the back.
It would be great to see these made with lots of different dies. Enjoy...
