Thinking Outside of the Box – Flip Top Box Tutorial

Welcome to this months Thinking Outside of the Box Blog Hop and tutorial!  Each month the Thinking Outside of the Box Design Team will be bringing you fabulous projects that are all to do with boxes, bags and packaging!  PLUS each post will have a tutorial for the project so that you can join in the fun too and make your own version!  I can’t tell you how excited I am to be on this fabulous team with demonstrators from EVERY country that Stampin’ Up! does business in!  Here we all are:

This months project is Flip Top Boxes or Hinged Boxes, whichever way you prefer to think of it!  I first created this type of box 10 years ago (!!) when a great team member created one from scratch and then shared it with me.  For today’s project I dug out those old notes and just adjusted the measurements to make this box work to fit our Notecards & Envelopes!

Here the box is closed using some Linen Thread to tie it shut – using a fun and easy little closure system that you can see how to do in the video tutorial below. I kept the outside of my box very simple in terms of decoration as this awesome Whole Lot of Lovely DSP does all of the work for you!  You could of course add as much decoration as you wish to your box!

The lid hinges open and then you can see how well the Notecards & Envelopes fit inside – I think it will hold about 5 cards, which makes a fantastic gift!



Stamps: Lots of Lovely
Ink: Tangerine Tango, Pool Party
Cardstock: Pool Party, Tangerine Tango, Whole Lot of Lovely DSP
Other: Simply Scored, Linen Thread, 1 3/8″ Circle Punch, 1/8″ Circle Punch, Notecards & Envelopes

Well that’s it from me, but be sure to head around the globe and check out what the rest of the design team have in store for you – remember we each have a free tutorial in our posts!

  1. Hi Sharlene, I love the color and DSP paper that you chose for this box, so bright and catching to the eye! Super cute box too, such a talented group to be a part of!
