Fairy Box folds away flat – store ahead

Fairy Box

This Box links the Fairy Celebration Stamp Set and Eastern Palace Designer Suite. When you are a grandma you make what they like. Because Caitlin loves fairies we stamped with Fairy Celebration today. Since I needed to make a new box this Fairy box was born. So how did we do it?

Fairy Box Creation

Finished Dimensions = 5″ x 3¼” x 1½″

  1. Cut your cardstock to 8″ x 11″ ( I used Tranquil Tide)
  2. Cut a piece of designer series paper – 4¾” x 3″ (Eastern Palace)
  3. Score cardstock on the LONG side at 1½”, 4¾”, 6¼”, and  9½″
  4. Score cardstock on the SHORT side at 1½”, 6½″
  5. Next burnish all the score lines with a bone folder.
  6. Score the diagonal lines as shown in red in the diagram below.FAIRY BOX TEMPLATE
  7. Cut in to the score lines at the 6¼” point as shown above.
  8. Place adhesive on the triangles labeled A,B,C, D, E, and F. Fold the sides over so it looks like this. Fairy box flat
  9. Use your bone folder to burnish the adhesive in the triangles well.
  10. Flip over your box to attach your designer series paper mat on the top next.
  11. Stamp your art image and your sentiment on 2 small pieces of Whisper white cardstock.
  12. Color and cut out the art piece by hand and stamp the sentiment and punch out it out. I sponged the edges of the sentiment with Tranquil tide ink.
  13. Finally cover the two corner squares of the lid completely with fast fuse or other strong.
  14. LAST attach the fairy with mini dimensionals and the sentiment flat on the top of the box. Fill it with goodies and gift to a friend or family member.
