Triangular Box Tutorial

This is he first tutorial I have attempted so please bear with me. I anyone reading this has suggestions on how to improve this - PLEASE leave a comment and let me know.

I have been asked how to make the triangular box I used on last week's House Mouse challenge. I originally made this box for the Double Dutch challenge sometime last year, and the instructions were given at to us at the time. You would not beliece how easy this is!!


1. Take an A4 (21cm x 29.5cm)
(
11.5" x 8.25" approx) sheet of card.
Measure and mark half way along both the
long and short sides.
Score across the breadth
Score from the centers to midddle - as shown by pencil lines.







2. Crease along each of the score lines with a bone folder or similar tool and fold to the center.











3. Fold all the creases inwards on themselves allowing the front side to sit on top of the bottom.














4. Holding the sides together pierce holes through each side.












5. Finish the holes with eyelets and thread ribbon through these to fasten the box.











Finish by decorating the front as desired.

These are the two I have made previously.
