Okay, so who doesn’t love a multifunctional box?
I love them! And I love it when I’m designing a box, and find that actually, it works for more than the original purpose in mind.
Originally, I wanted to create a box that would hold a number of lipsticks and look pretty on my dressing table. I don’t know if you’re anything like me, but my makeup drawer is a mishmash of all sorts. It has some sort of semblance, but my lipsticks just sort of float about in there.
So it was with that in mind that I decided to create my own storage for them.
But by happy accident, as I finished the box, I wondered, just for a moment, if my ink pad reinkers would fit.
And they did! Yay!
I am working on a design that will hold all 48 of our reinkers, but please bear with me on that, I’m currently sporting a sore mouth and jaw post operation earlier this week, and it’s keeping me from my desk, but it will be with you soon!
But for now, this box uses a very small amount of cardstock, just 6 x 12 inches in total.
Here’s the detail for you –
Cardstock 6×6, 3×6, 2×3, 2×3, 2×3
Score 6×6 at 1.5″ on all 4 sides
Score 3×6 along the long side at 1,2,3,4 and 5
Score 2 of the 2×3 along short side at 1
DSP 12 x 1 1/4
Cardstock – 15×15, 7.5×15, 5×7.5, 5×7.5, 5×7.5cm
Score 15×15 at 3.8cm on all 4 sides
Score 7.5×15 along the long side at 2.5, 5, 7.5, 10, 12.5
Score 2 of the 5×7.5 along short side at 2.5
DSP = 30.5 x 3
