CTD307 / 3D thursday mini box

Today I combined  a "color throwdown" challenge using crushed curry, old olive and Pacific point( Amazing color combination!) With a 3d project.

Thursday's will now be my " 3d Thursday " look for new 3d projects every week!

I first saw this cute little box on pootlespapercraft's YouTube channel. Thought it was such a clever idea but, I had no  idea what to put into the tiny little box and decided to save it for another time.

I am buying both my mother and mother in law some adorable necklaces.  I needed something to gift them in so....I said "TODAY IS THE DAY" !!!!

These boxes measure only 2×2 and 1/2" thick.

 Great thing about these boxes is it requires no adhesive...that's right it closes all up without anything sticky!!
You also do not need much supplies. One sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock can make 3 boxes. The layered piece measures a tiny little 1 7/8 x 1 7/8. 


1. Start with a 7"×4" piece of cardstock. 
2. With long side at top of score board score at 2", 2 1/2, 4 1/2 and 5". 
3. Turn cardstock so the short side is at top score at 1/2, 1", 3" and 3 1/2. 

 4. Time to cut some pieces off. Red colored parts in picture below show what needs to be cut off. 
5. Your piece should look like this 

6. Round corners on larger end.
7. Fold on score line 
8. Now fold together and decorate as you wish.
