Gingham and rickrack - they just say Springtime - fresh and cheery. Here's a peek-a-book pillow box, suitable for gifting small goodies in. A gift tag, too.
Here's your free papercraft printable:
The template is for the smaller size box. For the larger size, enlarge by 20%.
1 Score the folds with a fine-point embossing tool. Pay special attention to the curves. Butt against a small metal ruler for the straight folds.
2 Crease the folds.
3 Cut a piece of clear cellophane using the cutting guide. Place double-sided tape all around the window aperture on the wrong side of the box. Apply the cellophane.
5 Join the long edge.
6 Pop up one side of the box and seal it. Insert contents. Seal remaining side.
7 Add optional gift tag if desired. (You will have to pierce or punch a hole in the uppermost marquise shape through which to pass the tag string.)
Enjoy your Spring Gingham.
