I don’t have it quite all the way done. I have about 2/3rds of it completed. So, I can’t show it to you this week.
I didn’t want to leave you completely high and dry, so I have a little sneak peak along with a tutorial on how to complete this part of my command central.
- I was trying to use the scrapbook paper I had and therefore cut some of my measurements short. I would recommend adding an additional two inches to your measurement. That will give you a good allowance for the bottom of the box as well as the fold over the top of the box. I also recommend starting with the ends of your box adding an additional two inches to the width and allowing that extra to fold over the side. This will give you a ‘professional’ looking finish and give you a little wiggle room for the ‘exact cuts for the sides of your box.
- Bring the paper up and around the side of the end of your box.
- Cut the paper at the corner. Fold the extra paper over into the box first.
- Fold over the paper on the end you are covering.
- Once you have completed steps 1 through 4 above for both ends, measure and cut exactly for the two sides of your boxes. Once again, I would recommend adding an additional 2 inches to the height of your measurement to allow room for the bottom and the top fold of your paper. Align your paper as exactly as you can to the side of your box. You will have some wiggle room if your ‘exact’ cut is off a little bit because you have the extra paper folded around the side from the end pieces.
