This pencil box template is not mine but the design is. the template and measurement handout will be available at my next workshop on Friday, October 23. These can also be filled with Pixie Stixs.
Below are crayon boxes I design by reconfiguring the measurements of the pencil box to fit crayons. These would make really great favors, Halloween hand outs, birthday, Valentine’s Day or Easter gifts.
For those little four crayon boxes the measurements are as follows:
Cut a 2-1/4″ x 6″ piece of Card Stock. You get ten of these per 12″ x 12″ sheet of car d stock.
Score at 3/8″ up the long sides.
Score up the 2-1/4″ side at 1-1/2″, 1-7/8″ and 3-3/4″.
I didn’t make a sample of this box.
Here is a picture and directions for an six crayon box:
I then scored up the long sides at 3/8″ and along the 3″ side at 1-/1/2″, 1-7/8″ and 3-3/4″.
I stamped in Melon Mambo Ink the little quail/bird from the Happy Together Stamp Set on Whisper white Card Stock.
Using my 1″ Circle Punch I punched out the bird image. I punched other circles using the 1-1/4″ Circle Punch on Melon Mambo Card Stock and 1-3/8″ Circle Punch on Whisper White Card Stock. On Bermuda Bay Card Stock I punched a Scallop Circle.
I layered all the punched circles onto the scallop circle. I finished by wrapping a piece of Bermuda Bay Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon and adhering the layered scallop circle on top of the ribbon.
Here is a picture and directions to the eight crayon box:
For this eight crayon box I cut a 3-1/2″ x 6″ piece of Pretty in Pink Card Stock.
Again I scored up the 6″ sides at 3/8″ and along the 3-1/2″ side at 1-1/2″, 1-7/8″ and 3-3/4″.
I stamped birthday bliss in Basic Black Ink from the Birthday Bliss Stamp Set and punched it out with the Designer Label Punch. Behind it I punched out a Scallop Circle in Melon Mambo Card Stock. I wrapped a piece of Green Galore Card Stock around the bottom of the box and on top of that I wrapped a piece of Melon Mambo Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon. I adhered the birthday bliss greeting on the scalloped circle and placed a Green Galore Brad on the top.
Here are the crayon box templates. I’m sorry this is a little light but if you click on the image it will enlarge the template. I will hand out dark copies at my workshop. For those of you who do not live local and would like a copy just e-mailme.
Again thanks for stopping by and keep visiting as I have much to post.
