How to make a Stay Closed Box...


Here's a step-by step guide to make my take on the stay closed box.  Fill it with sweets and treats for a quick and easy gift idea for Father's Day.

First cut card to measure 18 x 21cm then score at 10 and 20 cm on the long side and at 2.5 and 15 cm on the short side.

Now, on the bottom score line, mark at 5 and 15 cm (the centre of each of the two 10 cm panels) and score diagonally from this centre point to the top corners of both panels as marked in pencil above.

Fold all the score lines, cut away the top and bottom section of the 1 cm flap and cut from the top and bottom edge to the apex of each of the three scored triangles.

Fold up to form the box, securing the side flap and four base flaps with extra strong double sided tape.
