Mother’s Day was this past week and I apologize for not getting this very precious, special box posted in time. This Split Top Box is quick and easy made with the new Heavyweight Whisper White Card Stock. Great directions at SplitcoastStampers in the Tutorial Section. The tutorial is done by Joan Jamieson and it is so clever! Quick, fairly easy and very impressive. I made this box to hold a birthday gift for my daughter. After I took all the pictures and got the edited I discovered that this ribbon is now retired. I looked in the new catalog and I think there are several ribbons that would work with this box. Let me know if you make it, I would love to see others ideas! The box that I CASEd was made for Christmas with a lovely Flower on top of it.
I am not going to even try to list how I made this because it is so well done on Splitcoasters site. I did add the end to end 1 1/2″ belly band in Blushing Bride Card stock. Using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch I punched both ends. I secured the belly band with a bit of Sticky Strip on the bottom.
Isn’t this clever to use the ribbon for the hinges? So a little wider ribbon is required.
And here it is open. Size? it is just right for the Regular Size Cards. The Box measures: 5 1/2″ long x 4 1/4 Wide and 1 1/2″ Deep. It is a very sturdy box but looks so feminine and precious in this color combination. Summery too!
This is what the inside looks like. A sweet little box. Please try it.
