Kirigami (Cut and Fold) Box with Free Tutorial



This kirigami (cut and fold) box which uses one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11" cardstock is fun and easy to make using the tutorial with Sharing Creativity and Company.  I was inspired to design this box after seeing one that used a 12 x 12 sheet of cardstock.  Because the cardstock was cut down to almost 8 1/2 x 11 in the original design, I thought it would be nice to start with an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of cardstock.  After playing with the measurements until I came up with this box!


IMHO, the video tutorial is the easiest way to figure out the cutting instructions.  While I have included the exact cutting measurements in the video, it's much quicker to take advantage of the clear ruler on Stampin' Up!'s paper trimmer.  Then you don't have to worry about the measurements.


I also made this IAM (In A Minute) Tutorial to show how I made the custom colored bling brads.  It's easy peasy using Stampin' Up! products!


Here is the picture tutorial if you prefer pictures.  The papers I used were the Lullaby designer series paper (133695, $10.95) , Coastal Cabana, Hello Honey, and Baked Brown Sugar cardstock.

Have fun making this box.  I'd love to see what you design.
