After looking around this evening I found the measurements for the taller box that I used for two gifts last Christmas and thought I would add them here since we are discussing boxes today.
The directions to create this box are exactly the same as the box in my Let’s Make a Box post; however you will need two (2) pieces of 12” x 12” cardstock to get the extra height.
To create the base of the box, punch and score at the following measurements:
Punch the corresponding score lines to complete the base.
To create the top of the box, punch and score at the following measurements:
Punch the corresponding score lines to complete.
Assemble the box base and lid in the same manner as described in the Let’s Make a Box post. Again, if you would like to add the inside panels for a more finished look you will need to cut two pieces of cardstock to the following dimensions:
Base – 6 3/8” x 4 5/8”
Top – 6 ½” x 4 7/8”
Remember to dry fit them to ensure a proper fit before adding your adhesive of choice to secure it.
The finished size of this box is 6 ¾” x 5” x 2 ¼” with the base alone measuring 2 inches deep.
I didn’t do any extra decoration on the lid of this box, but if you want to do that keep in mind it’s easier to decorate before the lid is assembled.
