Here's a great date in a box! I had posted this Game Box a while ago on my previous blog platform. A customer recently contacted me to get the directions to make this Game Box because she couldn't find it anymore. It's because I never moved it over here to Typepad. Well, here it with all kinds of information. My original inspiration came from a fellow Stampin' Up!™ Demonstrator, Becky Roberts.
I've taken pictures of every step so you can understand how it's put together. The box base and lid are based on this very BASIC BOX PATTERN. I've just changed the dimensions to fit my needs.
The basic box base is 4-1/2" X 9". The lid is the same thing with shorter sides. The height of the box is 1-1/2" and the height of the lid is 1/2". NOTE: The Game Box lid was made using Designer Series Paper and I feel like it's too fragile. I would recommend making the lid with cardstock and then cutting a piece of Designer Series Paper and gluing it to the top of the cardstock. This will make the lid more rigid.
The inserts are easily made by scoring and folding the Whisper White™ cardstock. Here are some closer images for you to see how I created this box. Click any image to see a larger view.
Hopefully, there are enough pictures to show you the basic structure. You can always modify the any part to fit your needs. Please contact me if you have questions or just need a little help figuring out some dimensions for your project.
