Today’s project is a Triangular Double Pyramid Box featuring the Festive Corners stamp set and Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper!
Here’s how the box opens:
And here’s what the sides look like:
Both sides nest nicely together to create a beautiful box! I added a little ribbon pull tab to help the recipient open the box as it’s a little awkward to do so without it! Here’s a trio of this Triangular Double Pyramid Box using different patterns from the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper:
My inspiration for this box came from THIS German website. I’ve had that project pinned for a long time because I instantly fell in love with it and wanted to “pixiefy” it for you! I couldn’t figure out an easy way to teach you how to make the box base with the 30º and 60º angles (using a set square), so I tried making 2 slightly different sized lids and BOOM! I was so excited with the end result I couldn’t wait to share it with you!
Without further ado, here’s my video tutorial:
And here’s the template for reference (not to scale):
I hope you’ll give this project a try! It would be wonderful as a table favor, Advent calendar, or ornament and can easily be changed up for different occasions! Share it on social media with the hashtag #paperpixie and I’ll check it out!
Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have a wonderful & blessed weekend!
