Wax Tartlet Window Box

May 28, 2017

 

I designed this gorgeous little box as the packaging for 4 of our wax melt tarts. Whatever colours or patterned papers you want to make it in is up to you. It's  so simple and made using Stampin' Up! materials and tools which are all linked below if you fancy making one for yourself. I pulled the ribbon in tight to show the little finger notches in the box, the sleeve does fit I promise.

 

To make the box just take a 6 x 6 inch (15.2cm) piece of cardstock and score 1 inch (2.5cm) on each side. Snip up the score lines on each corner to the first horizontal to make flaps to glue the box together. You need to apply the adhesive to the right side of the flaps. Be sure to burnish all score lines well to get nice crisp edges.  You can punch out a little half circle to give you something to pull the drawer box out with if you wish. I used a half inch (1.3cm) circle punch for this.

 

Make a divider for the middle of the box by taking a piece of cardstock 6 x 4 inches (15.2 x 10.2 cms) and scoring at 5, 6 and 7 inches (12.7, 15.2 and 17.8 cms) on the long side. Burnish all score lines, making sure to score the two outer score lines so that the edges fold up and the central one the opposite way so that you create a peak in the centre. Glue this to the bottom of the box. You can also glue the two sides of the 'peak' together if you wish but this is not essential.

 

Now take a piece of designer series paper measuring 4 x 11 inches (10.2 x 28cms) . Score on the long side at 1, 5, 6 and 10 inches (3.8, 12.7, 15.2 and 25.4 cms). On the section that is going to be the top of your sleeve punch two circles using a suitably sized punch or use dies for this if you prefer. I used a 1 and 3/4 inch (4.5cms) punch. Fold and burnish and apply adhesive to the final one inch of the DSP and glue sides together to make a sleeve for your box.

 

Tie a ribbon for decoration and to prevent the drawer from sliding out although the fit should be pretty snug and this should only be required for decoration. You could use a cardstock belly band a ribbon belly band, lace,, bakers twine or anything you choose as an alternative..

 

Attach a label if you wish to finish off and you're done. The round windows allow a customer or gift receiver to see what is inside the box and the slight gaps in the ends allow for fragrance to be breathed in without opening the box.
