DOWNLOAD 2 – BOXES
Click on this link: Download sheet – BOXES to open a PDF file which you can print out to make the 12 boxes feature in the photo.
This selection of gift boxes are unusual shapes so they will add interest to any scene. However they are a bit fiddley to do! (The Hexagon box in particular – so it has been simplified with no bottom to make it easier to put together)
You will get the best results printing on photo glossy paper but be aware – you need to fold it very carefully to avoid the surface cracking or breaking.
I prefer to pinch along the fold line first then I use a cocktail stick like a rolling pin to form the crease. If you want to avoid tell tale white edges run along the edge of the cut line with a felt tipped pen – hold the pen at 90 degrees to the cut edge to avoid colouring in the box face!
And of course – Always do a trial run before making up the box to check the ‘fit’.

Pictured above are some of the uses I have put these cutouts to. You can also make extra bits by winding thread around a cocktail stick then cutting the stick either side of the thread to make bobbins. Its much easier to do it this way than try and wind thread around a tiny bit of cocktail stick – I know because I tried it! Another easy accessory to make is just a folded bit of fabric, it can look just like a fat quarter, and then overlay a scrap of lace hanging out the box, you’ll be amazed at how effective it can look!
