Round Box tutorial...
As promised here is the tutorial for the round box from last Saturday! Its pictorial as I feel this is the best method outside a youtube video!
To make the box cut a strip 4" wide by the diameter of your chosen circle die ( if you are unsure of the diameter get a rough idea using a piece of twine or ribbon. Score this at 3.5" and cut small slits into the shorter edge up to the score line.
You will also need 2 large circles and three smaller circles ( as shown pin the picture.
Next adhere each of the tabs you created to one of the smaller circles until it is covered. This is easier if you bend the card round to give some shape.
Seal the 2 edged that meet to make a round box as shown in the next picture.
Next add the larger circle to the base making a neat and finished edge ( this will take some playing with until you are happy with the fit.
Make the decorative element for the lid of your box I used felt roses, ribbon and the Tonic trellis circle die.
Finally use the ribbon as a hinge and the box is finished and is (hopefully) pretty inside and out.
