This week’s Design Team project is a double sliding box by Cheryl Stapleton. This box is great for holding candy or something larger as it measures about 5″x3″. Here’s the box closed:
And when you pull on the ribbon to the right you get this:
So you can make this too and here is the supply list:
1 1/2″ square punch
patterned paper (Authentique “Abroad” collection used in the sample)
embellishments from the collection
Color Box Chestnut Roan ink pad
Ribbon to match
Plastic grocery bag
1 piece 2 3/4″ 4″ patterned card stock (tag)
1 piece 2 7/8″ x 5″ white card stock (slider frame)
1 piece 6 3/4″ x 8 1/2″ pattern card stock (box)
1 piece 5″ x 8 1/2″ pattterned card stock (box cover)
Punch a portion of each end of the frame using the square punch if you have one. Should like like this:
Cut a 1″ x 9″ strip of plastic grocery bag. Wrap around the frame and adhere to itself cutting off excess. Do not adhere to card stock. It should slide freely.
Score the box on the 8 1/2″ side at 1 , 2, 6 1/2, and 7 1/2 and on the 6 3/4″ side at 1, 2, 4 3/4, & 5 3/4.
Crease all score lines, cut out the three outer squares on each corner, and cut tabs. Should look like this:
Fold box together and apply adhesive to assemble box.
Add a small piece of coordinating patterned paper to each end of box base if desired.
Punch hole at one end of box, add ribbon for the pull tab
Add desired sticker/sentiment to tag, trim edges, punch hole, add ribbon
Slider frame: apply a strip of adhesive on plastic strip close to the edge.
Stick box to plastic on frame. Make sure the box pull is on the other side.
Flip the box over and adhere tag (sticker/sentiments face down)
Score the box over on the 8 1/2″ side at 1, 4, 5, & 8
Crease score lines, apply adhesive to the tabbed edge and adhere.
Slide cover over box and tag
Embellish box as desired.
Here are a couple of cards Cheryl made using the same paper line:
