Box Tutorial By Cathy Rumball

Hello Crafters,

Our Very Talented Cathy has shown us with beautiful step by step instructions that are easy to follow how to make a beautiful decorated box.

Start with. 2 pieces of card the same size.....I have used 29.5 cm X 29.5 cm.

 Using score board..I use Crafters Companion ultimate...score 1 piece of card at 6.5 cm on box lid and then the other 1 on box base.

 Fold and burnish all folds. Cut out sections of corners and then glue with wet glue. I hold in place with paper clips until dry.

 Next decide what you would like to decorate the box and create the mat and layers. The first one is 6cm x 16 cm....I have used teal coloured card. The next layers 5 X 15.5 this is the patterned paper. The top of the box is decorated with 15.5 x15.5 cm and then paper at 15x15 cm.

 Next comes the fun bit of creating dimensional flowers for the top. You can use any dies that you have...I used heartfelt creations and spell binders dies of various shapes. The flowers were then shaped on foam mat and then arranged and glued using hot glue gun to the top of the box.

 I then added a sentiment and a few leaves cut in white card to finish and a few gems to add some sparkle.


I hope you have enjoyed Cathy's tutorial be sure to let us know what you think. Our other talented design team members will be sharing how to tutorials with you soon.
