Avant garden cubed unit

Hi everyone 

How's your weekend been? Hope you have all had a nice time. I was working yesterday but today has been the day to craft and relax.
This project started out as I wanted to make a nice box to hold a little candle...then it turned into this lovely little unit type box.
I'm really proud of this project and can't believe it came from my head haha.
I've used a FREE stamp set called Avant Garden for the decoration...I love this set. This stamp set could be yours for FREE also when you spend £45 at Stampin Up!! Up until 31st March for every £45 you spend you can choose an item completely free from the sale a bration catalogue. If you have not yet got a catalogue please contact me and I'll happily send out all of the current catalogues free of charge. 
Anyway back to the project, here's what I've used :

Avant Garden stamp set
Flirty flamingo ink pad
Very vanilla satin ribbon
Strong double sided tape
Tombow glue
1/8 handheld hole punch

For the outside box you will need:
Flirty flamingo card measuring 11 3/8" × 11 3/8" score on one side at 1", 3 3/8", 8" & 10 3/8". Turn card 90° and score exactly the same. Fold and burnish well and then cut as shown below

Put it together as you would a reinforced box.

For the inner section you will need
Flirty flamingo card x 2 measuring 4 5"8" × 4 5/8" score in half at 2 3/8" fold and burnish well. Then on one folded piece line up at 2 3/8" in your trimmer and cut down to the 4cm Mark. On the second piece turn it so your folded edge is at the bottom and repeat the steps.
Glue the flaps down and slot together like picture below, then place it inside the reinforced box we made.

For the inner boxes
Very vanilla cardstock measuring 9 1/2" × 71 /4" score on the long side at 2 1/4", 4 1/2", 6 3/4" & 9". Score on the short side at 2 1/4", 4 1/2" & 6 3/4" fold and burnish well. Cut away all parts as shown below...also now is a good time to stamp your decoration on.

On the stamped section use the handheld punch to make a hole for the ribbon pull and secure with double sided tape. I also cut some flirty flamingo card x 8 to 2 1/8" × 2 1/8". I attached one to the inside of the door and also one on the bottom inside of each box.

Lastly I glued all the boxes into the box we made first and then tied ribbon around the outside and tied in a bow.

If you have any question please feel free to ask.
Thanks for looking

Happy crafting

Love Steffi xxx
