#onstage2018 Needlepoint Nook samples #6

Well I think this may be nearing the end of my stage samples - but I have created quite a few more and will have some to post to my Pinterest board soon.

This final set is a great way to showcase the gorgeous DSP. It's a set of 6 notecards using Sahara Sand as the base colour and each of the paper designs and this was the final project I presented at Onstage.
One of my favourite things about papercrafting is the willingness of others to share their designs and tutorials and this gorgeous box is CASEd from another designer in the UK but I first saw it when one of my good stamping friends from Central Qld shared it at a team day. (We are different teams but in regional areas sharing and connecting is vital and I love her creative energy- thanks Sharon).

I think it showed up well on the big screen too.

It's not difficult to create, but do the stamping on the base pieces before folding the score lines and assembling. The belly band simply holds it closed.
This box fits the smaller 31/2" x 5' notecards and envelopes
you will get the two lid pieces from one sheet of A4

Project details:
Base piece:
cut one piece 20cm x 24 cm
stamp the side areas first then score
score at 2cm and 5 cm on all four sides
cut flaps down to create box
Hinged Lid Pieces
cut 2 pieces 16cm x 14cm
score along short (14cm sides) at 3 cm
score along one side (16cm side) at 3cm and 6 cm
cut away excess to create flaps for construction of box

and here's a video for the visual construction, but if you google Split Top Box you'll find lots of variations if you are looking for different sizes.
