Slider Box Tutorial

Hello everyone! I'm so excited for my first individual post here at Crafters Corner Blog! Yayy!
Today i will be sharing a picture tutorial with all of you. Here's what we will be making today.



Its a slider box!! Aren't these Gorgeous!? I soo loved how they turned out!
For the blue box i've used the super pretty paper by Kaisercraft called Blae & Ivy its such an awesome paper pad it comes with die cuts, borders and quotes in it! We have it available at our store do check it out!

Now lets begin!

LIST OF SUPPLIES USED FOR BOTH THE BOXES
1)Martha Stewart All around the page punch- Swirling lace
2)Martha Stewart Score Board
3)Tacky Tape
4)Distress ink - Walnut Stain
5)Distress tool- Ink Blending tool
6)Pattern papers - Kaisercraft Blae & Ivy ,  DCWV Butterfly Garden
7)Charms- clock, chandelier both from the store.
8)Resin Embellishment - Hydrenga Flower
9)Scissors - Tonic
10)Craft sheet
11)Cutting mat- Self healing cutting mat
12)Archival ink black
13)JustRite vintage label 3 die
14)JustRite stamp- For all you do

Now lets begin!

STEP 1
Cut 2 pieces of cardstock measuring 5*6.75
Now using Martha Stewart all around the page punch - Swirling lace punch it.


STEP 2
Take one punched piece and lightly score or draw a line with a pencil measuring 1" from all four sides. Now using a craft knife and craft mat cut a frame. Next cut a frame or strips or pattern paper and adhere around the cut frame.



STEP 3
For the main box cut a piece of cardstock measuring 8.75*9 inches
on the 9 inch line score at 0.5, 2.5, 6.5, 8.5

On the 8.75 side score at 1.5 and 7.25. You will see that two sides of the box are shorter. This is done to get a 3D effect.


STEP 4
Cut tabs vertically on the 8.75 side as shown to assemble the box. I like tapering the ends so has to get a neater look. You can skip it if you want.



STEP 5
Cut pattern paper a lil smaller than the size of the box and adhere, We need to cover all four sides both inside and outside.



STEP 6
Now for the inner box cut a piece of cardstock that measures 6.5*8.25
Score 1.5 inches on all four sides.
Cut the tabs , taper and glue it.
Add pattern paper only to the inside of the box.

STEP 7
Center the inner box inside the main box and adhere.


STEP 8
Cut a piece that measures 7* 3.875  (7*3 7/8)
Punch the edges and cut it into half. If you want your flaps to be longer and more prominent you can increase the length.

Add pattern paper to it.

STEP 9
Cut 4 pieces of cardstock measuring 1*2 inches and score them at 0.5 inches.
Add these to the flaps as shown in the picture.

 STEP 10
After adding knobs and decoration to your flaps insert the small hinges between both the boxes.

STEP 11
Now add tacky tape to the top flap of the main box and adhere the punched frame carefully.
Next add the base punch out. Make sure you allign it properly.
(Sorry! I Forgot to click a picture of this step)

STEP 12
Decorate it as you like :)
