Default Big circle gift box template (5.5 inches)



This is large round box template that I made for the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog's #44 Be inspired Wednesday. It makes a box with semi circles that measure 5 1/2 inches in diameter, but please feel free to resize it if you like. The PDF size fits a CD pocket if you like.

city box:

There's a pictorial (on my blog) here:

and you can find the free digital city image on SCS here:

For those who prefer not to read blogs, Here's how I used it:

1) Print template & cut it out
2) Lay it diagonally on a piece of 12x12 cardstock or use watercolour paper.
3) Trace the template once, then flip it around & trace the circle again.
4) Cut it & build.

to add the CD pockets, I chose sewing (adhesive was not so hot with the clearance on the circles) and to strengthen the sewing holes that I pierced, I reinforced by painting white acrylic paint on. (If you're using patterned or coloured paper-you could paint on acrylic gel medium for reinforcing, since it's clear.) The template hides the stitching on the inside of the pocket when you assemble the box.

rainbow dress judy box:

Crafty hugs,
Mel

Hi Jennifer,

I bet those trees are stunning! I know what you mean, I struggle with lighting too. For photo lighting, THE Kristina Werner swears by this bright desk lamp set up (and her pics look great. I'm thinking of trying one (or two, since my camera is not as snazzy as Kristina's is.) Thanks so much for trying the template!!! Can't wait to see your project. Off to check your blog now... Hugs, mel
