Look at this:
How exciting - this is my first week of being a Guest Designer for Just Add Ink! I was lucky enough to be asked to be a Guest Designer for all of the challenges in April. Thanks so much to Bronwyn, Delys and the rest of the team for the invitation!
Here's my project for challenge #62 - Just Add A Box or Bag - an Easter Box.
This was a simple little box to make. I just cut some 12x12 cardstock to the height of the box plus half of an inch. I then scored along the long side at half an inch, turned the cardstock and scored every 2 and a quarter inches until I got to the end. There should be a three quarters of an inch piece left at the end. I cut the tabs on the bottom of the box, making sure I cut at an angle so that the box sits nicely when assembled. I then put some double sided tape on each of the flaps, including the one at the side of the box. I then adhered this last flap to the other end of the piece, making the box shape.
To get the correct shape for the base I cheated a little. I adhered one of the base flaps to a piece of cardstock that was larger than the base size. I then took off the rest of the tape covers and adhered the rest of the flaps to the base. It helps if you stand for this step, as you can look directly from above and get an even position for the sides. I then trimmed the base to size, decorated each side and I was done!
I can't wait to see what you come up with in this week's Just Add Ink challenge!
