the Male Room Challenge October: Black and White

 This month the Male Room Challenge is all about Black and White and only Black and White.

That threw me a little because skintones would be nice if I coloured a stamped image. So instead I made a treatbox, party favor, Hostess gift, what ever you want to call it. But manly.

I've used two kinds or patterned paper one black with white presents and one white with black dragonflies.

If you want to make one similar box you'll need a piece of paper 4"High and 4"3/8 long.

Score on the long side at: 3/8, 2", 2"3/8, 4"

Score on the short side at 3/8 on both sides.

fold and burnish the score lines and cut away notches as shown in pattern below.

I use hot glue to put the box together and I  put a dab on eacht little tab.

it fits 2 Merci bars.  And looks pretty with a nice coloured ribbon, for the challenge I only iused black and white, but I also made a few coloured ones for you to see.

  1. I found this challenge hard too! Great idea to make B&W gift boxes though. X

  2. Fabulous gift boxes! Love your take on the B&W.
    Have a great weekend, Majda

    Wat betreft mijn kaartje
    de kleur is naast warmgeel meer blauw dan paars.
    Dank je wel voor de tip.
