Easy Hinged Box Tutorial

Hinged Box
Hi friends , Thank you so much for the lovely comments on my Onam post!! Sharing a hinged box I made with  dies and some simple mixed media techniques!
Partitioned Hinged Box
The box as such measures 5 x 3 inches and is made from a single piece of cardstock measuring  9 x 7 inches and I made customised partitions for the inside .The cardstock is scored on the  9 inch side at 1, 4, 5 and 8 inches and on the  7 inch side at 1 and 6 inches. 

Hinged Box Tutorial 
Wedges are cut off for neater and easier gluing .Here is the link to the  detailed Tutorial : Hinged Box Tutorial 
Hinged Box Tutorial 
I used the Spellbinders Labels 8 die to die cut the base and lid of my box. As I wanted a sturdy box I layered 2 pieces of card stock under the pattern paper.

Stencilled a design using texturing medium Whipped Spackle and the Memory Box Texture Adornment Stencil.
Hinged Box Tutorial 
The paper I used was so pretty I kept the embellishing to a minimum! Added a homemade resin cabochon [ made using resin and alcohol ink in a silicon mold] on an oval die cut.

Couldnt resist a tiny ribbon rose on the corner of the box!

  26. So VERY elegant, and the paper is so beautiful. Love your hand crafted cabochon (I have the resin to do that, sadly it's a NBUS!) It was the perfect embellishment to adorn this wonderfully made box. Your stenciling also added a lot of extra detail & texture. It's a treasure to display somewhere in your home! TFS & Happy wkend. Hugs
