In a post or 2 back I showed you a cute little Christmas Treat Box and I said then that I would show you how I made it. I thought I would tell you about it today. It is so quick to make and seriously you can make up a number of these in no time.
Here is the box if you forgot – and to save you going back a couple of posts. You can go back if you like to though. 🙂 You can see all the other fun projects I shared from my Holiday Catalogue Review too while you are there.
These are so Christmas-y. These are called “SEVENS” boxes. WHY? Well it is all in the measurements. I have made a number of these over the years. I like how quick they are to make and you can fit a fair amount of treats inside.
I will tell you the measurements and then give you a link to the original creator for the assembly of the box. On that blog post it doesn’t have Imperial measurements so I have put created one for you my lovely friends if you use Imperial Measurements. 🙂
SEVENS BOX (Metric)
Using a full sheet of A4 card, score your card. On the short side score at 7cm and 14cm. On the long side score at 7cm, 14cm, 21cm and 28cm.
Rather than relay the cutting and assembling of the box you can refer to the original blog post which you can find HERE at Marelle’s blog.
2 AND A HALFER BOX (Imperial)
It doesn’t really have the same ring to it as a “SEVENS” box does it but it would be a bit odd to call it that!).
NB: Please try this on scrap paper first before creating it on card to see that the measurements are correct. This will be a slightly smaller box that the “SEVENS” box but still a good size.
Cut your card to 10 3/4″ x 7 1/2″. On the short side score at 2 1/2″ and 5″. On the long side score at 2 1/2″, 5″, 7 1/2″ and 10″. Cut and Assemble the box as in the link in the Metric measurements above.
Once you have made one I don’t think you will stop.
