Wait until you see how easy it is to make this box file in minutes using elements from Graphic 45’s Bohemian Bazaar.
1. Take a sheet of 12”x12” plain cardstock and cut in half (you only use half). Draw lines at intervals; 10cm, 5cm, 10cm, 5cm (see photo). Score and fold.
2. As before take a sheet of 12”x12” but this time use Bohemian Bazaar paper and cut into three 30x10 cm pieces. Concertina score and fold two of the pieces at intervals of 2.5cm and attach to your box foundation as shown.
Fold the box and attach the other side. Ensure you use strong glue for this.
4. Now for the lid. I cut one of the pieces from this amazing double sided piece of Graphic 45 Lap of Luxury cardstock
Score and fold 5cm from the top of your 10x15cm piece and attach to lid base.
6. Finally make a closure tab and attach to the lid. I have used a Bohemian Bazaar chipboard piece with a magnetic clasp attached underneath but you could also use Velcro pads. I decorated my tab with a K& Company beaded brad – these really complement the Bohemian Bazaar range.
Attach the other side of your chosen closure and attach to box front.
Tip. If you don’t have any closures you can use a loop of ribbon and a brad or button.
We hope you enjoyed the class
