Qui troverte le istruzioni su come costruire le scatoline su questo articolo.
Dieses Tutorial zeigt Ihnen, wie die Boxen von diesem Artikel erstellt werden.

(Materials needed: cardstock or paper, scissors, bone folder, ruler, pencil and materials for decorating)

The first box may seem a little difficult but once you get through the first boxes it will only take a few minutes to make each one after that.


1. cut a square of 12.5 x12.5 cm of cardstock or paper (this size is for the bottom half of the box).  For the top of the box use squares 13 x13 cm
2. on the back of the paper make lines with a pencil from corner to corner


3. fold up each corner to the center point (use bone folder to make the folds crisp)


4. open up again ; then fold the point of each section downwards


5. open up completely again


6. fold up each corner to the  line up above


7. once open it will look like this (many many folds!)


8. make four cuts (in this photo they are marked with arrows); cuts must stop at area in the center square (marked with red dots in the photo)


9. fold in the top and bottom (photo 9a) ; and bring in side flaps (photo 9b) ; it will then look like this (photo 9c)


10. fold both side flaps up and in ; use a bone folder to make edges crisp


11. And voilà – there you have it. Not difficult at all. Once the bottom and top pieces are done you can decorate any way you like.
PLEASE NOTE: this measurement will make the bottom portion of the box. To make the lid use a slightly larger measurement (13×13 cm) following the same procedure.

PostHeaderIcon Hand-sewing on Scrap Pages

Here is a quick tutorial on the hand-sewing of the border on this page:

PostHeaderIcon Make Your Own Masking Tape

I’d love to say that this was my idea but it was not.  I came across this a couple of weeks back and unfortunately didn’t jot down where I saw it.  I gave it a try last week and was happy with the way it turned out.
I’m thinking I may try it with different coloured tissue paper or even tissue paper that already has designs in it so no stamping is necessary.  I’ll keep you updated on how it turns out.
In the meantime you’ll find an easy tutorial on how to make your own.  You’ll see my first attempt on this page here.
