Square box tutorial using the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge

Hello, friends!

Today is Hello Thursday and I have some Hello Thursday projects to show you, but I won't be doing that until later today when I get the green light from Provo Craft. Until then I have another box tutorial for you. 

This box, just as the others, was made using the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge and the Pair - a - Phrase stamp set (if you are interested in this stamp set I have details at the end of the post). Can you believe there are so many boxes and bags on this cartridge. I still have 4 more to show you PLUS there are 2 different kinds of envelopes I thought I would show you. Which means I will do some more tutorials next week as well. Hopefully you all are liking them and finding them useful! I promise I will show other cartridges too soon. I know not everyone has plans to buy this cartridge, but there is just so much to show and teach that I am having trouble holding back ;-)

*edited to add that the dimensions of the box are 4 3/4" x 4 3/4" x 3/4"*
I cut the box fit to page on a 12" x 12" mat.
All supplies except for the ribbon is from Close To My Heart.
The paper is called Wonderland.
Then I scored the box using my scorepal.
The adhesive I used is called Terrically Tacky Tape from Provo Craft.
This box uses VERY little adhesive and is super easy to assemble.
My tag for this box was cut out at 3 1/2".
I stamped the image using the PAIR- A - PHRASE stamp set. If you want more information about this stamp set see below.
I added the tag using twine.
Then I added a snowflake from a sheet of chipboard that Close To My Heart sells called 'Dimensional Elements Flurry'. I covered it in adhesive an dipped it in glitter.


Now if you are interested in this fantastic cartridge and/or the current Close To My Heart promotions you have come to the right place!




Not only will you get the stamp set shown above, but you will also get a Typeset stamp set for free if you purchase the Stamp of the Month for only $5.

jacgonz said...

Melaine, you are so G&T (gifted and talented)! I love all these gift boxes, trinket boxes, etc that you have been sharing with us for the last few weeks. That just makes me WANT and NEED that ARt Phil Cart much more. Thank you. I am hosting a CTMH party so I can purchase it (hopefully for half price). I am in TEXAS and dying to get it. It's been great watching all the projects pop up daily. Thanks again.

This is really nice! Can you tell us what the finished dimentions are it looks like a flat box in the photos.

melanie said...

Diane, the dimensions are 4 3/4" x 4 3/4" x 3/4". The box is definitely not a flat box.
