Triangle Box

I played with an idea of creating a triangle gift box for a while and my husband's upcoming birthday provided just the perfect opportunity.

I really liked the polka dot green paper and my scrap pile hold just enough for the inner triangles. Since this box is meant for my husband I tried to keep the design simple and somewhat masculine by adding only the lace border, Edwin image and some ribbons.

Stamp: Magnolia
Colors: Copic Sketch markers - E00, E02, E57, N0, N2, B000, B01
Pattern Paper: Bo Bunny

To create the box itself was relatively an easy task. It's very symetrical and all that needs to be done is to draw lines evenly on 12x12 cardstock and cut it out. The ribbon holds the box closed. I punched holes with a small circle punch on the top of each triangle and reinforced them with an eyelet.

Here are dimensions I used for my box. It's a great size to hold bag of candies, gift card or any other smaller gift.
