HEXAGONAL BOX USING THE GRATEFUL BUNCH STAMP SET & COORDINATING PUNCH

Today's project was inspired by a little Wedgwood trinket box belonging to my husband's aunt.



Take a piece of Pool Party card stock measuring 10¼“ x  5” and score on the long side (landscape) at 1⅝”, 3 ¼“, 4⅞”, 6 ½”, 8⅛”, 9 ¾” and on the short side (portrait) at 1⅜” and 3⅝”.

With the ½” section to the right, snip off the two small rectangles and mitre the sides slightly on the remaining flap then cut up the vertical score lines to where they meet the first horizontal score line.  Rotate your card stock 180° and repeat.



(I like to round the corners on all flaps with the Project Life Corner Rounder as I think it gives a nicer finish).  Burnish along all the score lines to give crisp edges. 



To decorate, I recommend you first wipe your card stock with an Embossing Buddy to remove any static and finger marks then, using Versamark, stamp out your image (I used the lace edging and butterfly from the Grateful Bunch stamp set).   Sprinkle your stamped image with white embossing powder and set with your heat tool. 



To assemble the box, using double sided sticky tape, adhere the sides together and complete by tucking the right side of each flap over the top of the next one until it comes together.  To make the base more secure, I placed a glue dot under each flap and then stuck a circle cut from a 2” circle punch on the base using multi-purpose liquid glue. 



To make the flowers on the top of the box, using the same Grateful Bunch stamp set, I heat embossed all three flowers and cut out using the coordinating punch and layered using dimensionals.
