Happy Tuesday Everyone...
Last Thursday I received an email from Jen asking for a tutorial on my candle box, Click HERE to see the original post. I promised to do a tutorial so here it is. Unfortunately as a lot of you know when I make a tutorial I always make a different version of the original so here it is...
This one is made with Spellbinders Gold Majesty Circles to which I have added a strip of ribbon going through the die cuts.
Here is a close up...
Here's the tutorial
1cm, 11cm, 21cm, 22cm and cut the first sheet at this measurement. Next turn this one and score at 1cm from the bottom and at 17cm.
Take the next sheet and score at 10cm and 20cm and cut this sheet at this measurement. Then score 1cm from the bottom and again at 17cm.
Next take a third sheet and cut 2 10 x 10cm squares. This will leave you with four pieces of cardstock one at 22cm one at 20 cm and two at 10cm. Fold in all the scored lines and cut out the squares at the corners and cut up to the score lines in the middle (difficult to explain however the picture, Left, should help)
Simply lay your chosen die on the card in the middle of the larger centre panels. I have used a die that cuts elements out rather than a full shape.
This picture shows how I laid on the die, the next picture shows one cut with the next ready to cut. I cut these using a magnetic sheet (cheap pound shop one) and ran it through a few times at different places and angles.
Next step is to stick the two larger pieces together using the flap on one sheet. Then use the other flap to seal the two edges to create a box shape. Fold in the four bottom flaps and stick one of the squares on the bottom.
I really hope the pictures help to describe the steps, next time I will do this as a video tutorial I promise!
I die cut the 10cm lid and then stick this to one of the flaps to create a fold over lid.
This creates the lid and then all you have to do is decorate your candle box as you like. Please remember to use a battery powered candle and not a real one lol!
I hope you can all follow this tutorial,
