Scrapbook Blessings Club Monthly Challenge - August // Box Tutorial!

August 01, 2017

Hello crafty friends! I am back with another Scrapbook Blessings Club project for the August challenge! This month we're featuring a plethora of 3D projects featuring lovely images from our sponsor AMBIllustrations. Be sure to head over to our hop to enter to win a prize from AMBIllustrations! Today however, I'm featuring an image from our primary sponsor Bugaboo Stamps. Let's move on to my fun box tutorial!

I accidentally made a patriotic themed box way after July 4th, but that's okay! These types of square boxes are super easy to make. Essentially to make the base you'll want to use a sheet of 12x12 cardstock. I like using something that is double sided and sturdy which is why I often choose cardstock. This time around I chose a dark blue cardstock as my base. 

You'll want to score your 12x12 piece at 4" increments. So there will be four lines in total. If you're using a scoring board, you'll want to score at 4" and 8" on two sides. Then, you'll want to grab a pair of scissors! I know that it's sometimes hard to follow along without visuals, so feel free to look up other tutorials to get a better gist. You'll use your scissors to cut two lines on opposite sides all the way up to the middle panel. You'll also want to trim that middle flap you just created by cutting off a quarter inch diagonal.

You just fold up all of the sides and glue them together to get your base! For the lid of this box you'll need a 6x6 piece of paper. I used a double sided on again but this one is from Doodle Bug. You'll score each side of your piece of paper at the 1" mark. Then, trimming one side of the small square you created on each side of the box. You will simply glue these flaps up to create a perfect fitting lid.

To decorate this beautiful box I used this fun image from Bugaboo Stamps. I used my watercolors to bring these cute characters to life. I stuck with the color scheme of my box to make it consistent. Once it was colored and dry, I fussy cut it out. To jazz up the top of the box even more, I put a doily behind my image. I also decorated it with resin flowers, wood veneer stars, and a paper clip. There were so many more things I could add, but wanted to keep it to a minimum.

These boxes are so easy to make. We'd love to have you join us in the SBC Facebook group to get in on the challenges and share your creations. I hope you enjoyed this fun 3D project. I don't get to share many types of these projects. Do you create many 3D projects? Let me know what you make in the comments of this post. Thanks for stopping by!
