Louise’s Box

Hey there crafty friends,

I made this for my friend Louise. I love exploding boxes and designed this one to fit some smelly stuff.

I started with the base section that will hold the bottle in place. I wanted it deep enough so it would not fall over or wobble too much inside the finished box.

I selected a die from Layering Circles that would fit around the bottle, and then judged the depth required. 

From these estimates I decided to cut some Crumb Cake card to 8 1/4 inch square, scored at 1 and 2 3/4 inches. I cut the circle from the centre before constructing.

Form the box as usual. The base will be partially open, that is the flaps won’t meet. A square of card placed inside before sealing the box covers this up and makes the inside look neater.

For the side panels I cut Crumb Cake card to 9 1/2 by 2 3/4 and scored at 2 3/4. Make 4 of these. Decorate with DSP measuring 5 3/4 by 2 inches, which was layered on to card stock, 6 by 2 1/2 inches. I used Affectionately Yours and Tip Top Taupe.

The lid was made from Crumb Cake card measuring 6 3/4 inches square, scored at 2 inches. Decorated as above. DSP cut to 2 1/2 by 1 1/2 inches, (4 pieces) and 2 1/2 inch square for the top. Card layers cut to 2 5/8 by 1 3/4 inches, (4 pieces) and 2 5/8 inch square for the top.

I hope you have enjoyed this project.
