Triangle topped box

I recently posted up my Hexagon box and spoke about how I’m trying to make different shaped boxes that aren’t squares or rectangles. Now I know this has a square base but the top is pretty cool and certainly not square shaped!

I love making fun, odd looking boxes and think these fit that description perfectly.

I used my fun ‘Tropical Vibes’ DSP from The Range and my Stampin Up ‘Cherry on Top’ DSP. Both very colourful, fun prints.

 Perfect scoring is a must for these boxes to get nice Sharpe points and a clean finish.

To make these boxes you will need…

11.5/8 x 8.1/4 coloured card.

Score along 8.1/4 side at 2.3/4 & 5.1/2

Score along 11.5/8 side at 2.3/4, 5.1/2, 8.1/4 & 11

You then need to notch along 11.5/8 side at 1.3/8, 4.1/8, 6.7/8 & 9.5/8

x 4 pieces of printed DSP 2.1/2 x 2.1/2

Ribbon to fasten.

Check out my full tutorial below to see how I made it.

Happy crafting
