Flip Top Box for 3 Easter Eggs

Hi my crafty friends 🙂

This box makes a lovely gift for someone, either in your family or a close friend.

I’m so happy that I finale worked out that if you score the Gold or Silver Foil paper on the back side, that it wont crack when you fold it. This just totally made my day as I have always wanted to have a box with a shiny lid.

 

Here are the measurements, instructions and video:

Box Base:

Card stock: 11′ x 8′

score @ 1′ and 2-3/4′ on all 4 sides

  1. Fold and burnish all the score lines.
  2. Follow the cutting guide below
  3. Add adhesive to the outside of the four flaps.
  4. Add adhesive to the two top side section as well as the two end sections.
  5. Fold in one of the flaps and bring up the cut section to form the corner, repeat this on the other three corners.

Inside Tray:

 6-3/8′ x 3-3/8cut 2

Score @ 1/2′ on all 4 sides of both pieces

  1. Fold and burnish all the score lines.
  2. Cut out three 2′ ovals and attach too one of the tray pieces.
  3. Place the 2′ oval thin cut on top and hold in place with some Washi tape, and run this through the big shot, as shown in the picture.
  4. Repeat this step on the other two ovals.
  5. Follow the cutting guide below.
  6. On the bottom panel cut away two of the small flaps on one end only.
  7. add adhesive to all the top tray piece side panels (on the wrong side, NOT the right side).
  8. Add adhesive to the two small flap and fold them up to meet the cut edge to form the corners.
  9. Place the end that has the two flaps removed on to one end of the top, as shown in the picture. Then fold the two small flaps to the inside of the bottom to form the base of the tray.
  10. Fold the end top onto the base section, then fold in the flaps and then fold up the side sections to form the tray, as shown in the picture.
  11. Place this into the box base.

Flip Lids:

Silver Foil paper Z3366: 6′ x 5-1/2′ cut 2

score on the 6′ side @ 1-3/4′ & 4-1/4′ on both pieces

score on the 5-1/2‘ side @ 1/2′ & 2-1/4′ on both pieces. Make sure that the foil side is facing down on your score board, as this will stop the foil from cracking when you fold it.

  1. Very gently fold the Silver Foil paper by hand (I did this so as not to crack it).
  2. Follow the cutting guide below.
  3. On the top of the box lid. Make two small marks on either side of the 2′-1/2′ section, as shown in the cutting guide.
  4. Place this section into your trimmer, so that the mark  and the bottom corner is in the cutting channel, and cut down to form the diagonal side section.
  5. Repeat this step on all the side sections.
  6. Using a pair of scissors. Cut from the corner point to the score line on the square section (as shown in the cutting guide) and off through the 1/2′ section to form the bottom and back of the lid
  7. Repeat this step on the other squares.
  8. Cut the score line on the V section. Then add some adhesive to the small triangle .
  9. Fold the triangle section in, then bring the cut side section down to form the corner and side of the lid.
  10. Repeat this step for the other corners.
  11. Add some Glue dots to the 1/2′ bottom section, and slide the lid section onto one end of the box (with the bottom side down) so that you can adhere the lid to the bottom of the box.
  12. Repeat this step for the other lid side.

Now your box is finished and you can decorate it any way you like.

I have used the bunny from the Easter Animals step C1706

The the Basic Oval Z3328 Thin Cuts are the 2-1/2′

The inks are Sweet Leaf Z2853 , Glacier Z2841 and Charcoal Z2831

I hope that you like this box and give it a go ,

so till next time…..

Keep on creating and bye for now.
