Good morning everyone and welcome to my blog today, Tonic Studios have a brand new launch My Moments which is a collection of Months of the yr Locks,& Hinges ideal for memory albums, scrapbooking and if you have the Tonic Oxford Box that would be a great addition but also in your card making and box making.
Today I am sharing a box I created using the Hinges and one of the locks which were cut from mirri card and then distressed with some gold bronze nuvo mousse to add that slight rustic look.
Flush fitting hinged box
How to make the box
Base card 11 3/4" , x 8 1/4"
Score long side at 2 3/4" , 5 1/2", 8 1/4" , 11" turn the card and score at 2 3/4", & 5 5/8"
Lid for the box
Card 11 3/4", x 6"
Score long side at 2 3/4",5 1/2", 8 1/4",11" flip card score at 1 5/8", & 3 1/4"
Insert of the box
Card 11" x 7 1/4" Score at :-
2 5/8", 5 1/4", 7 7/8", 10 1/2" flip card and score at 3 5/8"
When you have all the pieces of card scored you will see you have to snip from the bottom to the score lines to create the base and lids the insert just slides into the base, to create the hinge for the lid it's just a scrap of card scored in half and one side glues into the base of the box before you put the insert in then add the insert and then glue the other part of the hinge to the inside of the lid but if you didn't want a hinge lid just leave that part off. And then it's time to decorate the box with the Hinges & locks you can also add a sentiment et to the lid of the box to match the occasion, the Hinges were cut from black card stock and added gold Nuvo mousse to add a rustic old look.
Hope the measurements help if you need a hand just leave a message in the comments or contact me on FB and I will be happy to help
