Sandwich box

Top Note Die idea no. 4... to make this cute little “sandwich” box. This box reminds me a little of an ice cream wafer sandwich – why can’t you get those any more?

I saw this box on the internet somewhere and guessed the dimensions. If you invented the box, please do comment and I will, of course, give credit where it’s due!

You’ll need two Top Notes and a piece of cardstock just smaller than A5, which is great because you can get the whole lot out of one sheet of A4!

I have measurements in metric and imperial so have done you a rough template. Your piece of cardstock needs to measure 20.5cm x 14cm (8”x5½”). Cut along the solid lines and score along the dotted lines.

I find it easier to start by scoring at 2.5cm (1”) from each edge. This is more accurate than starting at the left and working your way across.

Fold in the flaps to create a lid and then repeat on the opposite side. I’m not very good at explaining this but all will become clear. Finally you simply “sandwich” the box to the Top Notes so that when you lift the lid, the box opens.

  1. Very pretty, thanks for the directions.
    By the way,Aldi sell ice cream wafers,Yum!

  2. Aren't you clever making up the dimensions yourself!! Loverly!

  3. Another great idea. My husband said he wanted a wafer last week when asked what ice cream he would like, he was really disappointed when told "we don't do them any more" I'll have to go to Aldi and get him some. Thanks Kathy.

  4. Love this idea! Thanks for sharing the steps with us! So sorry you can't find your 'wafers'. Our family gets the 'ice cream sandwich' when we go to our local Dairy Queen (in US). I would be glad to eat one in your honor :-)

  5. great box I shall be sure to have a go at this one best wishes Lesley x
