Tower Box Tutorial

Hello Everyone,

Hope you all are having a fun weekend!

 It's my turn to share an inspiration project for Craftyscrappers as a part of my DT team and I came up with this amazing Tower Box Tutorial!   

It's a fun gift box and as Diwali (An Indian festival of lights) is arriving it could be a perfect gift for anyone.
 It can hold 4 items and that too in such a small space!
So let's begin.......

I started with a black thick sheet of paper measuring 12.5 by 6 inches. Here 0.5 inches (in 12.5) is for securing box so that it could close well, so for further measurements keep this 0.5 aside & all measurements will be done with 12 inches only.

Now score it as shown in the picture below, divide 12 inches into 4 parts of 3 inches & 6 inches into 4 parts of 1.5 inches. White boxes running diagonally is the space to glue smaller paper boxes. In rest of the space glue pattern paper of your choice.

Here is the picture after adhering the pattern papers...

Pattern papers used here are from "Paper Designer" & "Papericious" these are available at Craftyscrappers

Now let's make smaller boxes, for this I picked 4 thick pattern paper sheets of 6 by 6 inches. Took one and scored it horizontally & vertically as per the measurements shown below

Crease the lines using bone folder or ruler & glue the ends together.
Repeat the same for remaining three boxes.
Also prepare the lid using same process but with 6.1 by 6.1 inces, mid section of 3.1 inches & sides of 1.5 inches each.

Now let's work on the front side of the box...I glued the pattern paper pieces to it

Added shimmer paste using brick stencil from Craftyscrappers. It was so easy to use this small stencil, Craftyscrappers have an option to customise the stencil size of your choice, isn't that great to get as per your requirement.

Look at this lovely shade in yellow...totally sparkly!

Added some colour splatters in blue & black...

 Now glue the smaller boxes inside to the main sheet..

Embellish the box as per your choice, I added this cute stamped image to the paper dolly die cut. This cute mini stamp "Bouqet of Happiness" is also from Craftyscrappers & is designed by me :)

Added lots of flowers, laces, pollens and rhinestones to the lid.

I hope you liked the box & enjoyed the post, do give it a try & share your creations with us, and don't forget to leave some love :)

We have an interesting challenge going on at Craftyscrappers Sparkle it Up for October 2017, do join us and share your creations. 

That's all for today.....

Happy Crafting!
