Those of you who have followed me for a while and seen my previous Mothers Day Series will see that I always do a project featuring Tunnocks Tea Cakes as both my mother and I love them!

This Stepper Box fits 4 of them making this a lovely sweet gift that wraps up into a nice looking box.

To decorate these I used the free Altenew Daffodil die from issue 188 of Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine.

Altenew Layered Daffodil Die Collection


I also used the free downloadable papers available from the same magazine.

You can buy the magazine here from CraftStash.

Free Daffodil Downloadable Papers.

To make these boxes you will need…

1 piece of 11.1/4 x 6.1/8 cardstock for your main case.

Score along the long side at 2.1/4, 4.1/2, 6.3/4 & 9″

1 piece of 6.1/4 x 6.1/4 cardstock for the lid.

First, pull the cardstock out slightly from the side of the scoreboard and score at 1″ & 2″ then push the cardstock back into place and score at  4.1/4 & 5.1/4, rotate cardstock and repeat. By doing this it will make the lid slightly larger allowing a nice snug fit.

4 pieces of 5.1/8 x 5.1/8 cardstock for the boxes

Score at 1.1/2 on all 4 sides.

9 pieces of 2″ x 1.3/8 pattern cardstock to mat all of the boxes.

1 piece of 2.1/8 x 2.1/8 pattern cardstock to mat the top of the lid.

4 pieces of 2.1/8 x 3/4 pattern cardstock to mat the sides of the lid.

10 pieces of 2″ x 5.7/8 pattern cardstock to mat both sides of the case. I cut 5 in 2  different patterns.

Stamps & dies to decorate.

  4. Hi,
    Love the stepper box. What was the weight of card stock you used?

  5. Hi Marlene I removed that part as the measurements were wrong please find below a link to the instructions for the lid. Sorry for any trouble this may have caused 🙂
