How to make a Self Closing AND Hold Open Faceted Treat Box Bag

Stampin’ Up! #1 Demonstrator Pootles – How to make a Self Closing AND Hold Open Faceted Treat Box Bag

Well this is a bit of a different box today, right?

I’ve been all about the faceted boxes in recent times, and I managed to stumble across a concept art project. The study was to make packaging for doritos, and I loved the idea. There weren’t any measurements whatsoever, there was literally just a quick GIF and that was it.


So out came the ruler and cardstock and tra la! Box made!

The diamond shapes are needed for sure when the box is opened, and when closed, they create a lovely design.

Open or closed, I love the box. And it’s so easy to make! You know what I’m like! I don’t do difficult!

Have a lovely Monday everyone!
