Joined Box Tutorial – Confused? Don’t Be! I spotted this box design on Pinterest a few weeks ago and really wanted to have a go at making it. It looks like two boxes stuck together, but it is actually made with one piece of card. Seriously, these are actually made as one project. The larger of the two is 1-1/2″ x 4″ and the smaller one is 1″ x 3″, each has a square base. They would be perfect for gifting a lipstick and small hand cream, or similar. Maybe some sweet treats, particularly as the papers are from the How Sweet It Is suite!
This is certainly not a project for someone not used to making boxes, but it is not as complicated as it might first appear. The key is to think of it as two boxes and look at it in that way. The only difference is that one of the sides of the smaller box is the adjoining side of the larger box. I have provided a shot of the final shape you are aiming for with the Dimensions at the bottom of the page, as this is quite a leap of faith.
I was surprised that I like the How Sweet It Is papers because they are clearly aimed at children. Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t have anything against children as such, I just don’t have any and am not in my comfort zone around them. So why did I get the papers? Well, for every new catalogue I provide paper and ribbon shares, so this means I buy all the new papers when they come out. I am so pleased I did for the Spring/Summer catalogue, because the How Sweet It Is papers are some of my favourites. The B Sides are stunning (some of the A Sides are too!)
The Sweet Pins & Tags that are part of the suite are so cute. One of the shapes is the same as the Darling Label Punch in the Kit of the same name. This means that the stamps in the set are also the same shape, so I chose one of these for the sentiment. Quick, easy and simple – my kind of crafting. Add a simple ribbon and just pin the tag to it! Done. Love it!
