StampinByHannah How to make a lidded box for Neal’s Yard Bee Lovely Hand Cream

It’s been a while since I shared a 3D project on the blog. It really is something I’d like to do more of, it’s just not something that comes particularly naturally to me. However, this box came together super fast!

I LOVE the look of hand-made boxes with separate lids, but getting the lid to be the perfect size to fit is a little tricky. My method of doing this is to cut the lid ever so slightly bigger than needed. I used to at 1/16″ or 1mm, but now I tend to not even add that much! For the measurements of this box check the end of this post.

I have recently signed up as a Neal’s Yard Remedies Organic Consultant, and this hand cream arrived in my Starter Kit and it smells amazing! You can see the full range over on my NYROragnic webstore, or order a free catalogue using my Contact Me page.

The Neutral coloured box uses the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper which is carrying over into the new Stampin’ Up! Annual catalogue, while the Lemon Lime Twist version uses Naturally Eclectic which is only available While Stocks Last on the Retiring List!

Both boxes also use the Jar of Love stamp set, for that cute bug stamp, and the coordinating Everyday Jars framelits. I love the look of tone on tone stamping here, where you stamp with the same colour ink as your card stock. Very Classic.
