Magic Boxes: A Life As Lou Online Class
Due to popular demand, I am doing a tutorial on the Magic Boxes I showed off in some previous posts. To begin, choose your paper. You need six sheets of matching paper (preferably a heavier weight). Choose one for your outside, budgeting for a contrasting one for your lid, and 4 to create the inside boxes. Cut as follows (all measurement are in inches): Outside: 6 x 11 3/4ths Lid: 8.5 x 8.5 4 inner boxes: 8 x 8 The only challenging part of this project is creating the lid and inside compartments. 1. 2. fold the tips of your paper in so that they meet at the center. Fold in all four sides, and then unfold. 3. This fold gives you the sides of your box. 4. I have also colored four triangles. 5. 6. Do the same thing on the other side. 7. Repeat this process on your 8 inch and 8.5 inch papers. Now for the outside. 1. 2. To put the boxes in, first adhere one to the very top right corner, making certain that you are flush with the corner of the outside paper. Here are a few that I’ve made.
