When I first filmed the tutorial (here) on these boxes that my elder 2 sons designed, I was only working in either Metric, OR Imperial. I wasn’t giving both sets of dimensions.
It was not long after this that I realised it was a lot faster to work out both in advance, particularly as you lovely lot who support me here and on YouTube are scattered across the globe and some of you prefer Imperial and others prefer Metric.
The revisiting of this project also kind of came about because my middle two sons share a bedroom, and Jacob was, understandably, a bit put out that he didn’t have a special box with a J on it, so he too could hide moshi monsters, go gos and coins!
So, almost 5 months to the day after the first airing of this video, here it is again, with boxes made for Jacob and Oliver this time, and including both the Metric and Imperial dimensions!
I hope you like it now as much as previously!
And the dimensions, in both (!) are here as follows –
Cardstock – 10.5 x 7.5″
DSP = 2.25 x 2.5 AND 2.25 x 1″
Score on the SHORT side at 2.5 and 5″
Score on the LONG side at 1.5, 4, 6.5 and 9.25″
STILL on the LONG side, score down to the FIRST horizontal line at 1 and 4.5″
FLIP the cardstock over, so you’re scoring on the ‘back’, and score again at 1 and 4.5″
Turn so the SHORT side is at the top, score to the SECOND score line at 1 and 6.5″
Cardstock – 26.5 x 19cm
DSP = 5.7 x 6.3cm AND 5.7 x 2.5cm
Score on the SHORT side at 6.3 & 12.7cm
Score on the LONG side at 4, 10.1, 16.5, 23.5cm
STILL on the LONG side, score down to the FIRST horizontal line at 2.5 & 11.5cm
FLIP the cardstock over, so you’re scoring on the ‘back’, and score again at 2.5 & 11.5cm
Turn so the SHORT side is at the top, score to the SECOND score line at 2.5 & 16.5cm
You will finish with a set of score lines and sections to snip that look like this
