3D Friday | 5 Sided Twist 'n' Close Box


Welcome to a brand new series of blog posts and videos! I am so looking forward to this… although I am a little nervous!… 3D items aren’t always my friends, however I am giving it a go… and there might be a couple of Fancy Fold Cards from time to time too…but this week I thought we would kick off with something a bit special (and inspired by my friend Sam aka: the 3D queen!)

3D Friday Video Tutorial 5 sided twist and close box using Inside the Lines from Stampin' Up! UK

This adorable little box uses less than half a sheet of A4 card stock, and the measurements mean that you could totally make this using US paper sizes too! I love a cute box, but sometimes getting them closed (and to stay shut) is a bit of a challenge, not with this one… it stays closed all by itself, just by the action of the card stock!


Card stock – 8 x 4 1/2″ (21 x 12 cm)

Score on the long side at 1 1/2, 3, 4 1/2, 6 and 7 1/2″ (4, 8, 12, 16, and 20 cm)

Mark the card stock on the same long side at 3/4, 2 1/4, 3 3/4, 5 1/4 and 6 3/4″ (2, 6, 10, 14 and 18 cm)

Score on the short side at 1 1/2 and 3″ (4 and 8 cm)

Designer Series Paper – 1 x 8″ ( 2.5 x 21 cm)

The Designer Series Paper I have used on this one is FREE! as part of Sale-a-bration… Inside the Lines is designed to be coloured in, but I have to say I am enjoying using it as it is!

Question of the day: What will you make this box for?

I had intended it for lip balm, but actually you could fit loads of different things in here, and I can already see a even smaller version for a posh chocolate!
