Stampin’ Up! UK ADVENT COUNTDOWN 5 Lidded Box VIDEO
And we are continuing the series, but this time, moving on to gifting, or rather, the packaging of the gifts.
Sometimes you have a gift you want to give, but it’s a difficult size. Or perhaps you’re working to a small budget (not uncommon in this day and age) and you want to turn the packaging into part of the gift.
So I came up with a way to make a box, with a separate lid, that was lovely enough to make it part of the gift itself.
There are complicated ways to make lids for boxes, but they involve complications of 16ths of inches, and 1mm markings. Neither of which anyone really wants to contend with these days, particularly when you’re making a gift. You want it to be pleasurable, not a complete headache!
Watch the video, enjoy the video, learn the technique of box lid making, then come back here for the dimensions!
Box Base – Cardstock = 7 x 7″ and score on all 4 sides at 2″
Box Lid – Cardstock 5 1/8 x 5 1/8 and score on all 4 sides at 1″
DSP = 2 7/8 x 2 7/8
Box Base – Cardstock = 17.5 x 17.5cm and score on all 4 sides at 5cm
Box Lid – Cardstock = 13 x 13 and score on all 4 sides at 2.5cm
DSP = 7.5 x 7.5cm

I hope you love this as much as I do, and once you have the principle down, you’ll be box and lids a go!
