Easel Box Instructions

Rainmac has asked for some instructions for the Easel card box so here you go!

These sizes will make a 4 x4 inch box with a depth of an inch and a lid depth of 1/2 an inch

Cut a 6x6 square for the box base and a 5 and a little bit square for the lid.
For the easel cut a 4x4 square and a 4x8 rectangle

Score an inch from the edge on the box base on each side and half an inch on the lid.
Score the rectangle at 2 inches and 4 inches and crease to make the easel card support.

Cut a triangle as per pic out of each corner so it folds up into a box shape.

Decorate and assemble the easel card

Decorate the sides of the box (it's easier when it's flat) - I've only done the top but it's up to you and stick the base of the easel card onto the top of the box - I used DST but you could glue it.

Make up the box using glue of choice on the little flappy bits and put the lid on - it will be slightly bigger than the base
See post below for finished item
