I was originally designing a box that would hold A6 cards and envelopes, and when I’d finished the prototype with it’s pulley system of closure, I decided that this would make an ideal miniature version for holding 3×3 cards and envelopes, or little gifts and treats.
So here’s the video, you do need to watch it to get the gist of the stitching involved, but the basic box is very simple, and you could even put a belly band on it to keep it shut, or a couple of brads.
I just like the pulley system…!
The completed box has dimensions of 3.5 x 3.5 x 1 inch and needs the following cardstock and dimensions!
Cardstock measures 9.5 x 5.5 inches
score along longer length at 2,3,6.5 and 7.5 inches
score along shorter side at 1 and 4.5
Makes for a delightful box, and my children have already asked that I make ‘manly’ versions for them!
Products I’ve used on all 3 boxes shown are –
Pretty in Pink Cardstock
Island Indigo Cardstock
So Saffron Cardstock
Very Vanilla Cardstock
Sahara Sand Cardstock
Early Espresso Ink
In Colours Brads
1 1/4 inch scallop circle (back of spring summer catalogue
Whisper White Bakers Twine

So, I hope you like the project, if you’ve got any questions about it, or want to share, please feel free to get in touch, drop me a line, anything!
