The Dylusional Box!

Good Morning Everyone!

Thanks so much for coming out to Take Out Tuesday's Ustream Show last night!

I wanted to give you a couple of pictures and a few details of the angled box.....

Here's what we are talking about....

Here's what I did....

Painted 3 Large journal pages with Dyan's awesome colors (Dylusions Paint) and used stencils for some background noise.  Allow to dry.

Cut a 4 x 4 base from chipboard.

Cut (4) 5 x 5 sides and measured over 1-inch from each bottom edge and cut from the mark up to the corner making the angles.

I glued and applied structure strips to all four corners of the box.  I then covered the base piece with paint covered paper.

Once the base was covered, I applied glue to the bottom  of the box and gently lowered it centered in place.

I covered the sides with the Dylusional paper cut the same way I did the chipboard.

I cut a 5-1/2 x 5-1/2-inch lid from chipboard and  I then cut  a 4-7/8 x 4-7/8-inch  piece for the backside of the lid and adhered it centered into place.  Doing this helps the lid not to move and stay in place.

I covered the lid with the painted paper and covered two more scrap pieces of chipboard with the paper and cut scallops from scallop dies.

I punched a hole in the center of the scallops and the lid and inserted the orange knob.

To finish off, I would paint (4) wooden balls and adhere them to the bottom of the box for feet...

That's it...

Thanks again for coming by!

  1. Ooooooh! Can't wait to try this one. Since I never saw a box pattern I didn't like, my craft room is teeming with finished boxes I don't know what to do with. Oh well, on to the next one. Thanks for sharing this!

  2. Thanks for the pic and dimensions

  3. Oh my, very pleasing to the eye! Love the color combos. Thank you for the instructions. I think I might actually be able to make this box, and I'd love to give it a try.

  4. You are so clever, and such a great craftsman! Everything you do is so perfect!

  5. Beautiful job ! Love the colours ! Thanks for sharing ;)

  6. Love the box and the bright colors. Hmmmmmm ... I wonder how many ATCs I can get in it???
