In the video I show you how to build two boxes, one with a pattern that doesn't matter how you cut the paper and one with image you want upright on the box.
I am making these little giftboxes, together with another version for a birthday party for a friend's son.
Just a little something the kids can take home.
These boxes are glued shut, I tried to make a lid, but it wouldn't stay closed, It would involve an different pattern.
I reckoned kids wouldn't care and would tear open these boxes like there's no tomorrow ;-)
You can put anything in these little boxes, I prefer using treats that are packaged individually for hygiene and safety reasons.
But little gumballs, easter eggs, Skittles, M&M's would perfectly go in this box.
You can decorate further with a thank you tag, ribbon and such, I am doing this off camera.
To make the box you need a piece or (patterned paper) 5"3/8 wide by 4"3/4 high.
If your pattern has to be "legible" or the right way up make sure it's positioned horizontally or right way up on the long side.
On the longside score at: 1/2 inch, 2"1/8 and 3"3/4
then turn and score on the short side at: 1"3/8 and 3"3/8
I eyeballed the center of each square to cut my traingles, it's not really important, if you want it to be precise, measure, it's too difficult for a metric girl ;-) sorry
Cut away the parts as shown in the drawing and glue the parts as indicated. I used double sided tape.
the pattern is not 100% to scale as my grid is in centimeters
make sure your pattern is the right way up like my flowers...
