One Sheet Gallery and Our Top 3Ds!
Wowza look at you guys create! Like Carrie said, the first time we met IRL I made a "One Sheet Box" for her as a special swap. Look at where that little box has brought us... together on this blog...awwww bunny!
Here is my altered sample of the "One Sheet Box". I absolutely love this fun little box, because you can do so much with it! For my piece I just changed the score mark on the longer sides to 1 1/2". This made the box much wider and will fit A2 size cards as a gift. Instead of folding the sides in I cut the 4 1/2" & 6 1/2" score lines up to the 1 1/2" score mark and folded that little square up. I then took the two left over flaps and adhered them together on top of the small square giving a nice clean side.
Carrie was a bit of a keener this week and made two variation samples of the one sheet box. For the first one, she in addition to scoring the 41/2 and 6 1/2 on the 11" side, she also scored 1" and 2" in from each end. This way, she could fold the tops in to close the box. She finished it with a belly band made of ribbon.
For her second sample, Carrie cut her initial piece of cardstock down to 10" x 7 1/2". She used the same measurements and made a smaller box. Like her first sample, she scored in on each side and made a small gable box. She punched two holes on the top with her Crop-A-Dile and threaded the ribbon through to close the box. On this and the previous sample, she also adhered the sides together on the inside to keep things together a bit better. I will be the first to say it, both of Carrie's projects gorgeous!
