New Christmas box Template and tags to be found on Artwolf on Etsy.
Just a quick zip through in pictures to take out the mistique of making boxes.
These boxes will fit together perfectly, just follow the very detailed instructions and diagrams on the Tips and Text sheet you get along with your digital template.
1. Print off your digital sheet onto card, smooth bright white card for the best effect. Cut out the box template and tags just roughly, leaving some white surround to release them into individual pieces, they are easier to cut out now. If you don't want to make up the boxes or all the tags now, leaving a border of white surround around each piece will save the piece's edges in pristine condition, so you can safely store them in a box, until you wish to make them up.
2. Make a centre cut into all of the corner spaces on the template before cutting into the corners, as in 3, this will stop you cutting too far into your box,when you cut away the rest of the whiteexcess from and into those corner spaces.
4. Cut out the rest of your box,from the white surrounding card,
as you can see completed in, 5.
6. Score lines indicated in your Diagrams, Tips and Text, sheet you received with your template, either using a board 6A or a 6B a ruler,with a scoring tool, carefully position and lightly crease score lines. Completed scored and creased box,7. Folding the box up together 8. Added glue to the box's side tabs and gluing, back two first, then front,9. The best Glue for this is Sticky Fingers, Crafters Glue.
Cutting the tags out 10, any rounded tag cutting is greatly helped if you have apair of curved bladed small scissors, not neeeded, but so much easier, you can usually pick up a cheap pair at the chemists counter. You can cut out tags with guilloteen, for straight sided ones or scissors, or try fancy edge scissors for some variety,11. Punching holes for ribbon when finished.12.
Decorating can carried out on a flat box or after glueing together, I prefer to glue together first before adding glitter etc. Ribbons should be the last editions.
The boxes and tags I completed while I photographed, have not yet been decorated with any extra embellishments or glitter as I still do not have full access to my craft supplies.
But I'm sure you get the idea.
