Today I thought I'd share some boxes with you. The Hexagon Pinwheel Top Box is on the shows tomorrow. I'm really quite fond of this box as it needs no glue in its simplest form.
When it comes out of the Grand Calibur, having been cut and then embossed, you just need to fold along all the embossed lines.
Hold two of the sides together
Then slot the 3rd piece under the 'petal' of the other 2
Slot the 4th piece under the 'petal' of the other 3
Slot the 5th piece under the 'petal of the other 4
Finally, slot the 6th piece under the petal of the other 5. Make sure the bottom part of this piece slides under the bottom part of the first piece.
So that's it in it's simplest form. I can see this being gorgeous in white or ivory pearlescent card for wedding favours. Can you image how much money you would save or earn if you made these for a wedding?
The die pack also comes with 6 panels to stick on each side and a tag.
Here's some other versions -
In the one above I used some Creative Expressions double-sided patterned paper. I cut the embellishment panels from the other side of the paper. Hoping to have this paper on my next stamping show on 25th June.
In the one above I added the Couture Creations Houndstooth Embossing Folder at the emboss stage for the embellishment panels.
On the last one I added panels of patterned paper (think it's Basic Grey - only had a scrap left) as the embellishment for a Christmas box. I also stamped a sentiment and used the little tag die in the set to cut it out. I finished it off with a little Moss Green Vintage Ribbon.
Hope you like this little box too. It measures approx 7.5cm across the base.
Thanks for stopping by.
