Seed Box



Today I have made a seed packet gift box for my Tutti Designs project, using my favourite, go to dies


I cut myself a piece of yellow card measuring 7 3/4" x 9 1/2"
I scored long side - 3/4", 4 1/2", 5 1/4", 9"
scored short side - 1/2", 1 1/4", 6 1/2", 7 1/4"
I burnished all the folds and cut away the parts I didn't need to form my box.


Using the 4th circle in I cut a circle in centre of what would be my front.


Inside I added tear and tape and adhered a piece of  acetate for my window.


I cut two pieces of patterned paper for the front and back of my box,
cutting the same size circle again.


I used one circle die bigger and one smaller than the first one to form my frame
using a piece of the yellow card.


I added this to cover the original cut on my acetate window.


I coloured some white ribbon to match the box and added as a bow.
I then stamped and coloured the little image and added
it to the box using dimensionals.
The box can hold about 6 packets of seeds and I went with yellow and orange to
match the first seed packet.


Hope you like it!
