Isn't this the coolest!! The four triangle boxes fold together to fit in the square sleeve. This inspiration came from Tanya Bell. You need to check out her blog at Stampingt. You can click on it from the right side column. She has some really wonderful ideas, tutorials and videos on her site.
I like to use 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock, so this is my version of her great idea. This box is actually only two inches tall and the triangle boxes can be created from one sheet of cardstock. (you will need more for larger boxes). Each will hold a small gift (I used small baggies of embellishments for this one). I had a scrap piece to use for the sleeve.
So here is how I did it:
Cardstock: (4) 5 1/4" x 5 ½" (or the height you want the box plus 2") for the box
(1) 8 3/4" x 3 ½" (or the height of your box) for the sleeve
With 5 1/4" side up to the top of score board, score at 1 3/8", 2 3/4", 4 3/4"
With 51/2" side to top of board, score at 1" and 4 ½"
Using paper cutter, cut a three sided opening in the center section, with the hinge on the first and
second smaller sections. (3/4" x 2 ½" or size for your box)(Use 3/4" circle punch for notch)
Attach all four triangle boxes this way.
Snip between boxes and press down.
SLEEVE: Score at 1/4", 2 3/8", 4 ½", and 6 3/8"
Any Size Box:
C/S:[ height plus width of size wanted] by [ ½"+ width +2x triangle side measurements](found by marking end triangle as shown in directions and measuring score line from center point to box corner) End score lines will be ½ of base measurement. Complete as in tutorial w/ new measurements.
Let me know if you have any questions and I would love to hear about what you think!
Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!!!!
