Today All That Scraps is having another Review Preview Friday. This week we are reviewing the Annabelle and Sadie sets. I was bummed that I didn’t get a chance to play with the Sadies but I do have an easy Annabelle project for you! I was just playing around a few days ago with the Annabelle set and I came up with this tiny box. I don’t know if anyone has made one this size before, it’s surely been done….but I haven’t seen one. So I thought I’d call it a “Micro Box”. The card it is sitting beside is a 4 1/4″ square card, which shows how tiny it is!
I already had the card made so I pulled out the same papers I used and I started figuring out my box. If you are familiar with the 2-4-6-8 boxes, this box bottom is constructed the same way….only with different measurements. And the lid is simply made as well. I didn’t have time for a complete picture tutorial, but I think you’ll find it is easy to make.
Micro Box bottom:
I started with a piece of 3″ x 5 1/2″ Celery cardstock. Score the 5 1/2″ length @ 1 1/4, 2 1/2, 3 3/4, and 5. Turn the cardstock 90 degrees and score the 3″ side @ 1 1/4. Cut on the red lines and remove the yellow shaded corner as shown below. Fold on the dotted lines and assemble the box. (Click on the thumbnail for a larger picture). Decorate as desired.
Micro Box lid:
I started with a 3 3/8″ square. But if you look closely, my lid is a little loose. You may want to try a 3 5/16″ square if you would like it to fit a bit tighter. Score @ 1″ on all 4 sides. Using the scored lines as a guide, stamp as desired. Cut on the red lines as shown below. Fold and assemble your lid. (Click on the thumbnail for a larger picture). Decorate as desired.
Have fun with the tiny box! If you make one, please link back so I can see! :0)
