Welcome to the Pals December 2017 Blog Hop featuring “All that Sparkles and Shines”! Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.
My project for today is lovingly referred to on the internets as an “Impossible Box”! But I promise you it’s easier than it looks to create! And really has a wow-factor for the recipient!
Here’s another angle:
Here’s a view of the top of the box:
And here’s what the box looks like when you open it:
So, basically it’s a box with a built-in, attached lid! A self-closing box put another way. I originally saw an Impossible Box tutorial by fellow demonstrator, Josephine Johnson, and fell in love with it. The only challenge is she uses an Xacto knife to make the cuts and I couldn’t find mine, so I stashed the idea away for another time. Then, fellow demonstrator, Angelina Clark, figured out a quick & easy way to create this and I was thrilled!
So, this is my version of the Impossible Box! The box measures 3″ H x 2″ W x 2″ D and it’s a great size to fill with a handful of treats or a candle.
Here’s my video tutorial:
And here is the template I shared during the video:
