Rusty little box

I’ve been having fun with box templates, as you can see. I really like this one – it’s like a mini takeaway box… not that we get takeaways in boxes like this on this side of the Atlantic but I have seen instant noodles in them in one of the supermarkets.

I think you were supposed to enlarge the template but I couldn’t be bothered so this is a very cute little box suitable for about four chocolates.

To scallop the edge of the Designer Paper, I carefully removed the guard from my corner rounder, then punched along the edge of the paper.

And look! I used another button!
