Making A Simple Box - With Four Equal Sides

I have another Video tutorial for you today. This one will show you how I made the box on the left. 

It's not a quick 'how-to' showing you only what I did to make it, but a more in-depth tutorial showing you how you can make this style of box for any small item you have that has a round or square base. I show you how I calculate all the measurements I need for the dimensions and for the scoring.

If you struggle to re-fit box designs to items you want to package, or if you just struggle with boxes generally then this Video will be great for you. If you are a beginner and want to learn some of the basics in box making, you will also benefit from this Video :o)

I created this box to hold a small bottle of Bath / Shower gel. It has a round bottom, so all the sides of the box are equal - this makes for very simple box making :o)

The closure is on the lid of the box. There is a lip that you just slot in to the body of the box. The side tabs keep this in place and stop the lid falling down inside the box itself.

I decorated it very simply using paper from the Garden Impressions 6" stack and a sentiment from the Very Vintage stamp set.

Here is the Video ....


NOTE: Generally, I use imperial measurements (inches) when I use the Simply Scored board - these I will not normally convert to metric (cm's).

For everything else, I tend to use metric measurements and I will try and convert these to imperial for those that prefer to use them.
