I hope you like the project I made today. There is a free printable at the end of this blog post for your personal use 🙂

What you will need:

  • Sheet of A4 Cardstock in colour of choice        
  • Acetate
  • Scoring Board / Tool                                               
  • 1/2” Circle Punch for thumb notch
  • Corner Rounder Punch                                          
  • Adhesive or Double Sided Tape
  • Square or Rectangle Stitched Die                        
  • Cardstock and Patterned Paper for Layers

Step 1

  • Cut your A4 Cardstock down to 8-1/2″ x 7″
  • Longest side at top – Score at: 2″, 4″, 6″ and 8″ then turn once
  • Shortest side at top – Score at: 2″, 4-1/2″ and 6-1/2″
  • Cut up score lines and trim away excess as per image below

Fold and Burnish and this is what you will have.

Step 2 –

  • Using a Corner Rounder, round off the two edges of the tuck fold

Step 3 –

  • Create a thumb notch using a small circle punch or fussy cut by hand.

Step 4 –

  • Make sure everything is marrying up.

Step 5a – If you wish to add layers

  • If you plan to add some matting and layering to your box sides cut the following: x4 Matt Layers for the sides measuring – 2-3/8”x 1-7/8”, x1 Matt Layer for Lid measuring – 1-7/8” x 1-7/8”
  • DSP Layers: x4 Pieces for sides measuring – 2-1/4” x 1-3/4”, x 1 piece for lid measuring – 1-3/4” x 1-3/4”

Step 5b –

  • Die cut out a rectangle from the relevant section of your box. Note, if you want to add layers as per 5a above, please do so before die cutting.

Step 6 –

  • Make sure that everything is still marrying up!
  • Cut a piece of acetate (window sheets in the Stampin’ Up! world) so that it is 1/4″ taller and wider than your window.
  • Adhere to inside of box with tear and tape.

Step 7 –

Garnish and embellish as you wish!
