Hello friends! I put together a little photo tutorial of yesterday's box. Please email me or ask in the comments if you have questions. Writing a tutorial is not something I have done a whole lot of so forgive me if I lead you astray! Each picture has directions on it so feel free to enlarge.
Now we start the lid. My pictures here are not as good and I made some mistakes so be sure to read the captions.
The caption above is full of typos! Sorry! It should say that the middle flaps should be shorter while the top ones need to be 2.5 inches. I cut it wrong. I had to throw it out and start anew. Technically you could glue it that way and it would work but it looks nicer if the top flaps are a full 2.5 inches.
This is the box with the patterned paper added in.
This is the finished box. All the little details are what make it so much fun.
