ED again - 15th Oct 2008 - I'm having real trouble keeping up with demand for the templates to these boxes - could I ask folks to hold off from emailing me until I can get a 'button' sorted out that you can click on to download. - many thanks for your patience.
ED - Just a wee note to anyone who has/wants a template - Cut out on the solid lines and fold on the dotted lines. Stamp designs on your box before you make the folds. Stamp on the side of the cut out that shows NO lines, this way when you fold it up, the guidelines will be inside the box. Print the template out in a very pale colour if you are printing onto pale cardstock as there is the chance some of lines might be visible. If possible print it in a colour to match your cardstock - my printer allows me to do this - eg. If I'm printing on pink cardstock, I can print the template in a slightly darker pink.
Waiting for the wee guy to fall asleep the other night, I had an idea for these Three kings gift boxes - they each have three sides. I was mulling over ideas for things I could make to sell at Christmas craft fairs this year - might run up a couple of these.
They are so easy to put together - I have made a template which I have in PDF format - if I can find a way to make it downloadable from this blog I will, but in the meantime if anyone fancies a copy email me and i'll send you a pdf of the template.
What I like about them is that they can be finished in so many different ways - these are the first 3 I made but I'm working on another batch - they should be very different.
They're not huge but they'd hold sweets, bottle of perfume - jewellery etc, Loads of things.
I had a ball using loads of wee PTI stamps to gild the red box (pure poppy - PTI cardstock) - love how the Encore gold metallic ink shines.
On the brown box I made a wee tag with a scrap of Linen Vellum left over from when I cut out snowflakes with a sizzix die. Popped the burnt orange in behind and secured them together with an eyelet - hung from the box with fine string.
Went for a subtle plum on plum with the third box - maybe a leetle too subtle...but they're so easy I'm off to do some more!!
Hope they tickle.
