Pootles Advent Countdown 2016 #23 Unusual Closure Fold Flat Box

Pootles Advent Countdown 2016 #23 Unusual Closure Fold Flat Box Cool Opening!

Oooooo I am in love with this little box! I wanted to make a variation on the traditional ‘fold flat’ box, and this is what I came up with!

I love the closure of it and that is what makes this the star of the project, but I also love that you can get 2 of these from a sheet of cardstock…. Yes, you know what I’m like, I love getting multiple projects from a sheet of cardstock, so all round, I’m very happy!

I promise, this box is my usual easy-to-make-but-looks-complicated style, and that’s always a good thing! I’ve just shown it to my husband (an engineer) and he said “wow” and he’s not one to usually comment overly much on crafting projects…

So I hope you like it, and I hope you can make one to wow some friends too!

  1. Hi Sam I just love this little box, you saved my day. I bought some scented envelope sachets, and was raking my brain about a box. A angel (You) saved my day thank you so I am making some of the boxes. I just had to change the size to fit the sachet nice and snug, 11″ X 4 1/2″.
    Have a great day
