It’s not often that you see a Cylindrial box, in the almost 5 years that I have been a demonstrator with Stampin’ Up! I have seen plenty of cuboid, cubes, slopey lids, hexagons, octagons etc but very rarely have I seen a cylinder.
I like to challenge myself every now and again, so decided it was time to see if I could bring one together that could be replicated dozens of times. I’m happy to say that I think I’ve achieved this and not only is today’s project a cylindrical box, it is a flush lidded cylinder box.
The treat box uses one of the larger circles from the Layering Circles dies to help form the base and the lid, with a technique shown in my video to help curve the card and stop it from kinking. The box in the video is a Halloween version, but I just love the Christmas one in the photo above too.
The below tutorial was filmed during my TFI Crafty Friday Facebook Live, in which some of the measurements I listed were for a different size box. To make a box the same as the image above you will need to follow the measurements lower down on this post.
Please have a go at making your own and if you have instagram, please tag them with #yourfavouriteyorkshiredemo or #hullahbaloo so that I can come see them!
