Stay Closed Box

Today’s post is a fun stay closed faceted box that I saw on Pinterest.

For this one, I used Melon Mambo card stock for the base of the box. And I embossed the Whisper White for layering on top. I like that the box is a unique shape. To open the box you just pinch in the sides. So clever!

This box was made with Bermuda Bay card stock, layered with Best Day Ever DSP (free with a $50 order from Stampin’ Up! until March 31, 2015). The larger butterfly was cut from Coastal Cabana card stock.

The card stock for the base of this box is Daffodil Delight. I was thinking of Spring when I chose the paper and colors. The DSP is also from the Best Day Ever DSP pack. The Ribbon and buttons is another item you can choose for free from the Sale-A-Bration catalog with a $50 order until March 31, 2015.

To add the layers onto the box base I cut a 3 3/4″ square, folded it in half without creasing it and just pinched the top. Then I put it in my trimmer and cut from the center mark to the corner on both sides.  To make one of these cute boxes for yourself you can see the video here: Stay Closed Box
