It's a lovely sunny morning here, I wonder what the chances are of it staying like this? If it does, then that will be two lovely days in a row....so I'm not counting my chickens!
It was my nephew's birthday last week and as part of his present we bought him a t-shirt with the words "I am quite unusually brilliant" on it. Which he is, of course!
Well to make it more interesting, I decided to give it the same sort of concealment treatment used to disguise another t-shirt for another nephew a while back
Using a couple of sheets of A4 card printed with the same digital paper designs, plus another sheet printed with a couple of toning designs to use for trimming
Last time I made one, I just glued up the top once the t-shirt was inside, but this time I punched some holes and used a binding technique and some twine to make the closure.
If you are interested in making a box like this, there are loads of templates and tutorials on the internet. Just search on ...juice (or milk) carton box... and check them out till you find one that makes the most sense to you - some are simpler to follow than others!. Once you've got the basic idea in your hear it's fairly simple to see how you can expand the template to make something as big as this one. My two pieces of A4 card are joined along the long side, to make a tall box, and I made the base turn-in tabs only about 1.5cms, sticking them to a couple of squares of card (one inside the box, one for the outside base) to maximise the height of the finished carton.
I made a tag to hang from the top of the box, along with a simple pocket - a bit like an old-fashioned dinner money envelope, just big enough to pop cash or a cheque inside. As am after-thought, I added a punched circle with a little "open me" message on it, just to make sure it wasn't overlooked when it was hung behind the tag
Thanks for looking, have a great day
