2 Boxes from 1 sheet of card Stock

one sheet 2 boxes 2

Fathers Day in Australia falls at the beginning of September, so I  made these two boxes to give to my Dad (who I like to call Mr Craddy Crad Fish) but I do love him dearly, XX Dad.

one sheet 2 boxes 1

I taught this in one of my classes last year and I thought that I would share it with you today 🙂

Here are the measurements and the video for both boxes.

Large Box

Card stock: 12’ x 9’

If using a CTMH score board,

Score on the long side @ 2-7/8’ & 5-3/4’, then turn to the other end and score

@ 1/2′ & 3-3/8’

Score on the short side @ 2’, 5-5/8’ and turn to the other end and score @ 1/2′

If using a 12’ score board,

Score on the long side @ 2-7/8’, 5-3/4’, 8-5/8’ & 11-1/2’

Score on the short side @ 2’, 5-3/4’ & 8-1/2’

Paper: cut four @ 2-5/8’ x 3-3/8’ and cut one @ 2-5/8’ x 2-5/8’

This is the cutting guide for the large box.

Red lines are score and fold lines, Blue lines are notching and cut away pieces and Green are to be removed.

Small Box

Card stock: 12’ x 3’

If using the CTMH score board,

Score on the long side @ 1’, 5-1/2’ & 6-1/2’ then turn to the other end and score @ 1’

Score on the short side @ 1’ & 2’

If using a 12’ score board,

Score on the long side @ 1’, 5-1/2’, 6-1/2’ & 11’

Score on the short side @ 1’ & 2’

This is the cutting guide for the small box.

Red lines are score and fold lines, Blue lines are notch lines

I forgot to punch a finger pull on the small box , so after you adherer the paper to the top section and before you make up the box, punch out about a 1/4′ of the front panel (so that its in between the two score lines and the two side flaps).

Tools used : CTMH score board, trimmer, liquid glass.

Card stock Black 1386, paper Blossom Paper Packet X7196B, stamp sets used D1560 Holiday Tags and C1614 Tagged with Love.

Black ink Z2105

The original idea came from Pootles Paper Craft.

I hope that you give these boxes a go

so till next time, keep on creating 😉
