Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator stampwithpeg – Hexagon Gift box : Cherry Cobbler with Copper Butterflies. With instructions/Tutorial.

This hexagon gift box is a remake of one I made earlier in the year, I received a question a couple of weeks ago about the finished size of this gift box, and also about the measurements. As I had used the box I couldn’t measure it to answer the query so I have remade it, but have used metric measurements this time. If you would prefer imperial the link is HERE for my previous project.

  • Cut your card to 28.5 cm x 20 cm, score on the short side at 6.5cm, rub over card with embossing buddy and then stamp your chosen pattern using versamark above this line.
  • Add your embossing powder and heat emboss.
  • Score on the long Side at 4.5, 9, 13.5, 18, 22.5, and 27 cm. Fold and burnish all score lines. Cut away the small oblong bottom right and wedge into the thin panel above, cut up all the score lines to the horizontal score line.
  • Add adhesive to the thin wedged panel as shown.
  • Bring the other side over to the glued panel and join.
  • Add adhesive to the end and middle of three of the flaps as shown.
  • Carefully place your box over jar or tin of a similar size.
  • Using this to keep your box in position join opposite flaps until all are joined.
  • Add a circle to the bottom of the box and also to the base of the inside.
  • My circles were die cut using the Layering Circles framelit dies, using the two largest I cut one scalloped for the lid and two plain for the base (already used above)
  • For the lid cut a piece of card 28.8 cm long (slightly longer than the base for a good fit) x 9.5 cm. Score the short side at 6.5 cm then score the long side at 4.5, 9.1, 13.6, 18.2, 22.7 and 27.3 cm (I have added 0.1 cm to every second score line).
  • Fold and burnish all score lines, on the narrow end panel cut away the largest piece and wedge into the smaller panel.
  •  Place your main box upside down over over your jar/tin, make your lid up over this to get a good fit. First adhere small panel and join, then repeat joining the flaps as for the base.
  • Here is today’s sneak peek, I have added the scalloped circle to the top of my lid and then added one of the gorgeous new doilies from the Spring/Summer catalogue, these are Whisper White on one side and Very Vanilla on the other, what a great idea. Only a few weeks now till this becomes live, January 4th is not that far away.
  • For decoration I added a butterfly to the lid, and some washi tape around the lid with a bow using the gold sale-a-bration ribbon also available 4th Jan – free with a spend of £45, see my last blog post HERE for more info.

The finished measurements for this gift box are – 13.5 cm high with a diameter of 8 cm.

This box will fit most jars of jam but also could be used for homemade biscuits or fudge or would be big enough for a scarf or gloves or lots more things, I hope you like my remake of the hexagon gift box.
