Step by Step Instructions

Step 1. Following on from the previous napkin ring workshop this project will show you how to make a box the perfect size to house 6 napkin rings or it can just be made for a nice deep box. The following main products are…… Sue Wilson festive collection snowflake mini striplet die with the napkin rings made using the frames & tags Molly die set and the Creative Expressions stamps to die for …. Ribbon rose frame.

1 1-copy

Step 2. Place the A4 piece of Foundations pearl icicle card in a portrait position on a score board and score at 7 ½ cms & 19 ½ cms.

22-copy

Step 3. Turn the card to a landscape position and score at 7 ½ cms in from the left hand side of the card.

3-copy

Step 4. Turn the card 180 degrees and score in 7 ½ cms from the left hand side again. This is important to turn the card as now the middle section of the card is an odd number but all the outer sides of the box measurements will be 7 ½ cms.

44-copy

Step 5. Repeat this on a 2nd sheet of the icicle card.

5

5-copy

Step 6. Fold the card over at one of the 7 ½ cm sides to make the card small enough to fit in an A5 guillotine (or leave unfolded and just use a larger guillotine). Cut off the 1 ½ cm piece which is left on the right hand side of the card. Do this on both pieces.

66-copy

Step 7. Now crease both scored panels into place ready for them to be joined.

77-copy

Step 8. Lay both panels side by side so the 7 ½ cm sides are facing on the outside. Cut up to the 1st score line on the corner scored line and then cut another line on the diagonal up to the same point to create the corner tab which will be used to close the box sides up with.

88-copy

Step 9. Place the 2 main large areas of the box base over each other and look at how the sides will look. Here you can see a small amount of card needs to be trimmed off the inner flap. But this box is made this way to make the sides sturdy and to allow the box to be made out of A4 card.

99-copy

Step 10. Trim off that excess card to leave a wonderful finish later on.

1010-copy

Step 11. Add a line of double sided sticky tape on the inner base of the box panel you have just trimmed. Lift the backing sheet of the tape up and fold it back over the edge of the box as this will act as a tab to be pulled to allow the card to be stick correctly in place.

1111-copy

Step 12. Place the panel over the box panel ( make sure you have the 7 ½ cm sides all around the outside of the box). Leave the tabs showing on the outside.

12

12-copy

Step 13. Once the card is fully in place and you are happy the side flaps marry up, go ahead and pull the tabs from under the panel. This technique allows the card to be lifted if it`s stuck down in the wrong place.

13

13-copy

Step 14. Fold all the corner pieces inwards making sure the top and bottom panel has the outer flap still flat as this will be used to cover the tabs in-between the flaps later on.

14

14-copy

Step 15. Add some Cosmic Shimmer dries clear glue on all 4 folded down corner flaps. You may want to do 2 at a time but I like to do all 4 so it`s up to you how you add the glue. KEEP THE 2 FLAPS THAT ARE IN THE MIDDLE FLAT & DO NOT GLUE THEM OR MOVE THEM OVER THE NEXT STEP.

15 

15-copy

Step 16. Stick one of the flaps onto the inside of the box side (the outer flap that was left flat) Repeat this on all 4 flaps making sure no tabs are stuck to the outside of the box.

16

16-copy

Step 17. Now to glue the flaps that were pushed down in the centre of the card. Add some Cosmic Shimmer dries clear glue on the flaps……

1717-copy

Step 18. …… and raise them up & stick them to cover the box tabs that were just stuck down.

1818-copy

Step 19. Cut 2 panels for the sides of the box which should measure 145mm x 73mm.

1919-copy

Step 20. Attach the panels on the inside of the box using the Cosmic Shimmer dries clear glue. This will complete the box base and it`s now ready to make the lid for this project.

20

20-copy

Step 21. Place the 6 napkin rings in the box. You may want to raise the napkin rings up slightly to allow them to fit perfectly but this will just show them off more.

21

21-copy

Step 22. Place a piece of the icicle card in a portrait position on the scoreboard and score down at 3cms in and then measure at 147mms and mark that line. Now move the mark across to the nearest scoreline and score down this channel.

22

22-copy

Step 23. Just double check the box base will fit on this measurement. It just needs to be 2mms larger than the base.

23

23-copy

Step 24. Turn the card into a landscape position and score at 3cms and then measure at 122mms. Again mark that line and the move the mark across to the nearest scoreline and score down this channel.

24

24-copy

Step 25. Score a 3cm line down the side on the 147mm and the other sheet at the 122mm scored lines as this will complete the 4 outer sides need for the lid. Trim away the excess card the other side of the scored lines to make the box lid shape.

25

25-copy

Step 26. Lay the main inner intricate snowflake striplet die in the centre of the box lid area. Mark with a pencil at the top and bottom of the die and repeat the process on the left hand side of the box. Make sure you keep within the scored line of the edge of the box lid.

26

26-copy

Step 27. As you have the spacing laid out, place the die in the centre of the pencil lines which are either side. Secure the die in place with some low tack tape.

27

27-copy

Step 28. Now run the piece through the Grand Calibur machine.

28

28-copy

Step 29. Use the Spellbinders tool in one whilst the card is still in the die so it will remove the tiny pieces easily.

29

29-copy

Step 30. Repeat the process until you have cut all 3 panel on the box lid. Working from the centre outwards means you`ll get a lovely spaced flow to the piece.

30

30-copy

Step 31. Go in and crease all of the scored lines in the lid.

31

31-copy

Step 32. Now cut the corners by cutting up to the 1st score line on the corner and then cut another line on the diagonal up to the same point to create the corner tab which will be used to close the box sides up with. Repeat this on all 4 corners of the box.

32

32-copy

Step 33. Use some Cosmic Shimmer dries clear glue to stick each tab onto the main inside sides of the box.

33

33-copy

Step 34. Place all of the napkin rings into the box.

34

34-copy

Step 35. Colour or use a moss green vintage ribbon and place the centre of a long length of ribbon so it passes from top to bottom on the front of the box.

35

35-copy

Step 36. Pass the ribbon under the box and cross the ribbon over before bringing it back up the sides. Finish the ribbon off in a bow or a knot and then place another worked topper to match the napkin rings but this time keep it flat. If you add a solid plain die shape in the box with instructions, the tag and ribbon from the box could be made into a napkin ring as and when the family grows !!!

36

36-copy

Step 37. So a delicate box with a very tidy base perfect for the napkin rings or another gift could be added instead.

37

37-copy

Step 38. Just a slightly different angle to see more of the sides of the box.
