Its the weekend! A slightly later post from me today, I hadn’t scheduled this post ahead and I have been having a lazy start to the day with plenty of coffee!
So today I am sharing a gift box, but focusing on how to make this coordinating bow!
The bow is made from the following pieces of card stock:
- Three 12″ x 1″ strips
- Three 10″ x 1″ strips
- One 5″ strip – this is the middle part on the far left of the pic.
Each piece is twisted together into a figure of 8 like this and I have staples each part together.
You then assemble each layer, with strong glue! Here is a quick video of how this has been put together.
If you would also like the measurements for this box, they are as follows: Base = 12″ x 12″, which has been scored at 3″ in on every side, tabs cut and folded to make a basic box. The Lid = 10″ x 10″ , which has been scored at 1 7/8″ on each side, tabs cut and folded to make a basic box.
