I promised you a tutorial on how to make this fun 'square' Petite Purse Box seen last week on our Freaks Blog Hop.
You will need to cut out four of the Petite Purse die-cuts, although you really do not need the full die-cut.
You can see where I cut off the base of it here and part of the large flap on the left side (where the black line is). I also trimmed off just a bit of the curved flap too.
****I did add texture to my Real Red card stock die-cuts with the Perfect Polka dots embossing folder before adhering them together below.
Here is a photo of all 4 of the die-cuts adhered together by their narrow side flaps. I prefer using our Tombo Multipurpose adhesive for boxes. It holds so strongly!
This is the box as it looks from the top. You can fit quite a few goodies in this square box. I just folded the patterned paper flaps inside and added velcro dots to the Red card stock flaps.
I do like the added strength using card stock gives this box. You could do it with all card stock or all patterned paper. It's up to you but if you want a sturdy box I recommend at least half card stock as I did.
This is the difference in size. You get double the space inside for treats when you make it square.
- If you look at the little curved notch on the very top of the Red square box, that is the flap that usually tucks in to hold the Petite Purse flap down and closed (it's hiding under my punched flowers on the left image).
- The die-cut includes a narrow handle for the Petite Purse. I used these die-cut strips as accents on my square box on the bottom of each side.
- I adhered Daffodil Delight brights buttons as 'feet' on my square box using mini glue dots.
- The Summer Smooches fabric covered brads match the Summer Smooches patterned paper perfectly!
