Annabelle Micro Box

annabelle-micro-box-diane-zechman.jpgToday 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.
