It’s a fun gift box and as Diwali is arriving it could be a perfect gift for anyone.
It can hold 4 items and that too in such a small space!
Here’s a look at the completed Tower Box:
So let’s begin with the pic-tutorial…
I started with a black thick sheet of paper measuring 12.5 by 6 inches.
Here 0.5 inches (in 12.5) is for securing box so that it could close well, so for further measurements keep this 0.5 aside & all measurements will be done with 12 inches only.
Now score it as shown in the picture below:
Divide 12 inches into 4 parts of 3 inches & 6 inches into 4 parts of 1.5 inches.
White boxes running diagonally is the space to glue smaller paper boxes. In rest of the space glue pattern paper of your choice.
Here is the picture after adhering the pattern papers…
These are the pattern papers i have used…
Pattern papers used here are from “Paper Designer” & “Papericious” these are available at www.craftyscrappers.in
Now let’s make smaller boxes, for this I picked 4 thick pattern paper sheets of 6 by 6 inches.
Took one and scored it horizontally & vertically as per the measurements shown below
Crease the lines using bone folder or ruler & glue the ends together
Repeat the same for remaining three boxes.
Also prepare the lid using same process but with 6.1 by 6.1 inces, mid section of 3.1 inches & sides of 1.5 inches each.
Now let’s work on the front side of the box…
I glued the pattern paper pieces to it.
Added the sparkling SHIMMER PASTE-SONOMA using
the BRICK STENCIL from Craftyscrappers.
It was so easy to use this small stencil, Craftyscrappers have an option to customize stencil size of your choice, isn’t that great to get as per your requirement.
Here’s how it looks, once shimmer paste applied:
Look at this lovely shade in yellow…totally sparkly!!!
Added some color splatters in blue & black…
Now glued the smaller boxes inside to the main sheet..
Embellish the box as per your choice,
I added this cute stamped image, to the paper dolly die cut.
This cute mini stamp set “BOUQUET OF HAPPINESS” is also from Craftyscrappers
and is designed by me 🙂
Here are some of the close-ups:
This is how it looks once opened:
I have added lots of flowers, laces, pollen’s and rhinestones to the lid.
I hope you liked the box & enjoyed the post, do give it a try & share your creations with us, and don’t forget to leave some love 🙂
