Thursday Tutorial with Michelle

Hi, welcome to the last Thursday Tutorial of the year! I can't believe how fast time has flown. Today's tutorial is how to fold and score the Snowflake "blossom" box on the Artiste Cartridge.

 

 I couldn't for the life of me find any instructions or tips on how to fold this hexagon "box"! I fiddled with  scoring different lines and finally got it to work. Artiste recommends 4", so that's what I used and it's perfect for a gift card. I recommend cutting a "test pattern" out of your "I'll never use this" pile of paper. I actually found out I didn't want a busy pattern because you can't really see the snowflake.


You can cut this up to make a pattern to dress up the box.
 This is at 1/4, which I personally didn't like, so I made a change in my cutting lines to 1/8". Do this same procedure to produce a pattern for the bottom. Trace 6 arms and one bottom to the back of your designer paper, cut them out and adhere to the box. I colored my snowflake arms silver for a little shine, and look at how nice it turned out!



So I hope you make one of these to see how easy they are now that the scoring/pattern instructions are available.

It's been fun filling in for JoNeita. Thursday Tutorials will be back in 2014!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  2. Great tutorial. I've always been intimidated by these boxes but I think I could do one now, thanks to your video. And I love how you used the patterned paper on the solid background.
