I am really a sucker for cute little boxes, so when I saw this new Big Shot Die die from Stampin' Up! I couldn't wait to try it out. So I sat down to play with it the other day, and this is what I ended up with:
Here is what the die looks like:
Obviously, this makes only half a box. You have to use Designer Series Paper, and can only cut one piece at a time, otherwise your score lines will not be deep enough. Card stock is too heavy to work all those folds well, and the Extended Crease Pad is a must!
As you can see, the shape of the box is created by lots and lots of folds. Each one must be creased really well with a bone folder in order to get the box to fold correctly. It is a bit or work, but I found it rather soothing to fold and crease, fold and crease, and then end up with the shape just magically coming together!
Let me know if you are interested, and I will try to make a video on making these boxes next week.
