Round Box tutorial...

Happy Saturday,

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.



on the rear of the lid  add a strip of ribbon to act as the closure and add a smaller circle over the top.  This isn't just for decorative reasons the different in the size creates the edge that sits on the top of the box. ( sorry its really hard to explain)



Finally use the ribbon as a hinge and the box is finished and is (hopefully) pretty inside and out.


Enjoy...

  5. Eh up John
    Got it. I suppose you could could cut a circle out of funky foam to stick under the card layer on the underside of the lid to make the lip a little deeper or a couple more circles of card if you didn't have foam.
    Anyhoo, have a great weekend at Telford.

  19. A brilliant tutorial I think I prefer pictorial ones because it is easier to follow when actually constructing one I was intrigued to see the mechanics of the hinge - so clever - Doh!

  26. Thank you, thank you, thank you - my Gene dolls will be delighted their hats can be properly accommodated (the feathers are somewhat prone to being squashed if I box them with the dolls). It's fascinating to find to what other hobbies and interests your followers have!!

  29. Thank you for the lovely box tutorial. It is always helpful to have photos of the project. I am having withdrawal from not watching your shows on hochanda. I miss you so much. You always inspired me to try something new. I also learned technique and art from you. For that I am most grateful and appreciative. You were a pleasure to watch. Hopefully you will be back on TV soon. I can't get to the UK from the USA, so I rely on shows on TV or any video you can produce.
