Inverted Corner Box Tutorial . . . . . . . .



Good morning everyone. Me again, back with the Inverted Corner Box Tutorial.

There are a lot of photos I'm afraid but I work better with picture explanations so hope you all do too.

I hope my ramblings make sense, but if they don't, please shout.

The measurements I have given are for the largest box I could make using a Grand Calibur and for one continuous piece of card. You could, of course, make it wider by doing it as separate panels but I always personally think boxes look tidier if you can use the fewest separate side panels you can.

Start with an A3 piece of card and cut the shorter side (30cm) down to 21cm. 
Then score along the longest length (42cm) at the following intervals;
1cm, 9cm, 10cm, 11cm, 19cm, 20cm, 21cm, 29cm, 30cm, 31cm, 39cm, 40cm and 41cm and chop the final one cm off.

Then score along the bottom at 4cm up (or 17cm down depending on which way you want to work lol!!!).
Chop out the pieces from the bottom up to this score line so you end up with a piece of card as shown below.


Cut your pattern die out of each side panel. I used the SW Delicate Adornment as I happened to buy 2 of them as a bargain on eBay and thought they looked good cut out together, but you can use any die/s that cut into the card rather than cutting out.
As your card is 21cm deep, it will go through the Grand Calibur.


After you have cut all four side panels, your piece of card should look like below.
The pencil line you can faintly see is just to get my dies level.


Re-score the already scored lines and fold each panel as below.


Fold the base flaps up as below.


Fold the ends together and stick the ends together to form the box but keeping the corners pushed in. Then stick the bottom flaps down on top of each other to form the base. They won't completely cover the bottom so draw around the base twice and cut out 2 pieces to cover the base inside the box, as below.


And on the very bottom as below.


Draw around the base a third time and cut out a circle that lines up with the corners, as below (apologies for the blurry photo but I think you can see what I mean).


When you have cut out the circle, nip out the corner triangles and score along the edges following the lines (you can rub them out before or after) and you end up with a piece as per below.


From this piece, I cut in a medallion die (I happened to use SB Medallion One) in the centre and punched flowers from the side flaps. I then backed the flaps with some purple card to make the flowers stand out when the lid is on.


Finally, cut four pieces of card to hold the lid in the box. In this case, the square section of the lid is 10cm x 10cm so I cut the four pieces to 7.7cm x 3cm and scored along the longest side at 1cm so that each piece is 1cm one side of the scoreline and 2cm the other side. The picture below shows 2 glued in place (the 1cm side is glued down and to the edge of the flap) and 2 ready to be glued so you can, hopefully, see what I mean.


Bend the flaps in so they are not flattened out and the inner card pieces slot in behind the panels to keep the lid in place. Hope you can see what I mean below.
Add some ribbon through the top to make it easier to pull the lid off.


Embellish as you wish and voila, you have an inverted corner box with lid.


I will add a button to the menu bar at the top of the blog as a future reference point for this tutorial.

Hope you all have a wonderful week.

TTFN

  12. An awesome box and a BIG piece of paper! Fantastic instructions and I can hardly wait to make your inverted box and lid. You are so clever to do these corners and how you made your box lid. I never would have thought how to do this lid. But I can see it now. I don't have any paper this large. But from studying your great photos, I should be able to come up with the math to size the box down so I can make it with my "dinky" sized paper here in the USA. Thanks again for the tutorial and adding the button to the menu bar for future reference.
