LLLC: Get whale tissue box

For this week’s inspiration at La-La Land Crafts we had to make a 3D project. I opted for making a tissue box cover. I’ve deliberately made the cut out part square so that I can easily see which type of tissues I have in the box (as the actual tissue boxes are in different colours). As usual I decided to do it all myself. I did not write down the measurements I used as I figure there are loads of tutorials on this out there. If I am wrong, just let me know and I’ll make another and do a tutorial for it, too. You can find all the LLLC products I used at the bottom of the page. In addition I used Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and Maja Design and Bazzil paper.

My favourite whale had to get a spot! It fits the sentiment too well to leave out. You can find the list of Copic colours at the bottom of the post.

The bottom left corner has three butterflies. I do love these little butterflies.

The larger floral arrangement is in the top left corner. I’ve used a couple of leaf dies and some cheese cloth as well

The other top corner also holds flowers, but as a smaller arrangement and with a butterfly.

Stamp:
Jaws Because clear stamp

Dies:
Two Branches
Pierced Scalloped Circles
Triangle Lace Border
Mini Butterflies
Long Flags
Stitched Nested Circles

Copics used: B00, BG15, BG49, BG53, BG57, BG78 W1, W3

Superhero box card

So, I got a request to make something. A box card, for a young lad. Considering I hardly every make anything for boys, and never had made this type of box before, of course I had to say yes! Haha.

I followed a great tutorial by Jenny at LaLa Land Crafts. It was very easy to follow and my box looks just like it should!

The products I’ve used are two stamps by Tiddly Inks, My Batty Hero and My Super Boy. They have been coloured in with Copic and then cut out by hand. The stars are by Papirdesign, the Happy, cloud and scalloped circle dies are from La La Land Crafts. Let’s look at the box!

Here you can see the box directly from the front:

From the left side you can see how the images pop up. The boy’s first name has been left on the photos as per the recipient’s request.

And from the right side you can see the bit behind them quite well with the English birthday greeting and die:

Here is a close-up view of the bottom of the box:

See how nicely it folds down? That made it easy to send it by post!

Box for a small gift

So here is something that doesn’t happen very often, a non-card project and no colouring! I made this box by request from a co-worker. She really likes the colour blue so I wanted to make it in that colour for her. It was to be given to a couple who were both celebrating their 50th birthday.

I used various blue papers and made a sentiment myself. I cut a paper straw in half and died some twine around it. A bit of cheesecloth, chipboard and blue distress ink helped make up the rest of the box.

Here you can see the side and front of the box at the same time:

The box is easy to open. Just untie it!

As you can see, I added the number 50 to each side. One for each of the two people celebrating their birthday.

Would you like to try to make one? I’ve added a template here.

16. Blue triangle box with snowman

After my co-worker challenged me to make the triangular shaped boxes, I’ve made a few more. This is the very first one of them that I made. She likes blue very much, so that was the obvious colour for the box. I’ve decorated it with various Noor Design dies, a Panduro snowman sticker, Norsk Stempelblad stamp, some twine and Craftwork Cards candi.

This is where you can open the box. You simply untie the string and open it up.

Here is a photo from the front of the box.

11. Triangular Christmas box

Another new thing I have attempted this year is to make a triangular box. A co-worker of mine, who had bought one at a fair a while back, showed it to me and asked if I could make something similar that she could have to put a gift card in. I played around and think it turned out pretty well!

I have added a template at the bottom if you’d like to attempt to make one yourself. I’ve also added some Norwegian instructions at the bottom of the page. (For norsk tekst ang. eske-malen, se nederst i innlegget.)

First photo is a view of it from the front. I have used a lot of Maja Design paper, which I’ve painted white edges on. The sentiment is also from their papers. The glitter paper is from Søstrene Grene. I’ve also coloured and fussy cut two gingerbread from Power Poppy, and added a small Kort og Godt charm to the twine. The tree die is by Noor Design.

Here is a closer look at the colouring. You can find the list of colours I used at the bottom of the post.

With the box rotated slightly you can see that the sides have been decorated with paper on the sides also, and there is twine that ties the box together.

This photo, giving a side view, shows that I’ve also used some cheese cloth, Craftwork cards candi as well as a different Maja Design text.

The box is tired together with twine. It is easy to open and easy to tie back together.

(Informasjon på norsk lenger ned.) Here is the template. You cut at the black solid lines and score the paper on the dashed lines and then fold it all together. I have decorated it with paper slightly smaller than the measurements on the template to get a red edge around it.

The green circles are suggestions for where you add the holes. You can have them either higher up or lower down, but it is easier to have them in the middle as there is less measuring to do. As you can see from the photo above, the edge of the box isn’t straight, so then the holes would have to be in different positions on the base and on the lid.

(If you prefer inches, then you can use 12 inches (30cm), 6 inches (15cm) and 3 inches (7,5cm). Although the numbers don’t equal exactly, the numbers are similar enough to make a same size box.

I have not taken any photos of inside the box, but you can obviously decorate that also, and add a sentiment or two.

Copics used: (gingerbread) E42, E43, E44, E47, (yellow) Y13, Y19, (green) YG01, YG63, YG67, (red) R22, R24, R59, (grey) C1, C3, C9 +  a white pen

Informasjon om malen, på Norsk:

Jeg har også laget en mal. Den sorte, hele linja er hvor man kutter basen, mens den røde stiplete linja er hvor man perger. Begge sidene er like store. De grønne sirklene er hvor man kan lage hull. Du velger selv hvor du vil ha hullene, bare husk på at hvis de er mot bretten på lokket så må de være mot kanten på bunnen, og mye lenger inn (hvis du ser bildet over så skal ikke enden på den siden av boksen være rett), og motsatt.

Dekorasjonen velger man selv, men det er ikke så vanskelig å skjære ut litt mindre trekanter for å pynte med papir. Man kan også pynte inni med både papir og tekst, og det er god plass til for eksempel et gavekort.
