No Cut Magnetic Gift Box using Pretty Petals DSP by Stampin' Up - VideoTutorial

No Cut Magnetic Gift Box using Pretty Petals DSP by Stampin' Up - Video Tutorial

I really like these boxes, they came about because I needed a box for a friend's birthday gift, she got the Calypso Coral version, and I wanted to see if it was possible to make a box of this size as a no cut version from a single peice of card stock. 

A 'no cut' box is made simply by folding the card in clever ways. These are made from a single piece of card stock. 

The beauty of this sort of box however is the folding means most of the structural elements are double thickness making the subsequent box very sturdy - was that a bit too geeky? I am an engineer in my day job!

The boxes are a really good size, my friend's gift was a small purse, but they would also house a lot of other things. 

They snap close using some powerful nano magnets. 

My versions use Calypso Coral and Mint Macaron card stock and they are both decorated using some of the bolder patterns from the ever versatile Pretty Petals DSP.

The sentiment comes from the Handmade for You set.

Hope you like the box and give it a go yourself - it might look complicated but once you get the hang of the corner folds, it is really straight forward - I promise!

      I feel so blessed and fulfilled. I've been reluctant in applying for a loan i heard about online because everything seems too good to be true, but i was convinced & shocked when my friend at my place of work got a loan from Progresive Loan INC. & we both confirmed it and i also went ahead to apply, today am a proud owner of my company and making money for my family and a happy mom. Well i'm Annie Joe by name from Pauls Valley, Oklahoma. As a single mom with three kids it was hard to get a job that could take care of me and my kids and I had so much bills to pay and to make it worst I had bad credit so i couldn't obtain a loan from any bank. I had an ideal to start a business as an hair stylist but had no capital to start, Tried all type of banks but didn't work out until I was referred by my co-worker to a godsent lender advertising to give a loan at 2% interest rate. I sent them a mail using their official email address (progresiveloan@yahoo.com) and I got a reply immediately and my loan was approved, and I was directed to the Bank site where I withdrawed my loan directly to my account. To cut the story short am proud of my hair stylist company and promise to testify to the world how my life was transformed..
