I am aware that Mothers Day is happening in the US, Canada, Australia and many countries this weekend, so am posting this now. I hope the instructions are not too gobble-di-gook!
Despite the long tutorial this box is actually very quick to make, (once you've grasped the principle) so please do have a go.
Open the two pages above, by clicking on them, then 'image save'.
Instructions in Brief
Make the box first - from a square of good quality paper.
Make the wrap from good quality, heavy weight card.
Wrap length: is the same measurement as the paper used to make the box.
Wrap width: is 20mm (7/8") wider than the finished box width.
Score lines on wrap:
1) Mark the centre of the wrap (lengthwise).
2) Measure the height of the finished box.
3) Mark the box height measurement - half either side of the centre point.
If you want to colour tint, stamp or round corners of the wrap - do this before attaching to the box.
Add panels or 3D embellishments after attaching to the box.
This was a 'New Technique Challenge' on Splitcoaststampers.
