Easter Egg Shaped Box with Corri

Hi everyone!  Corri here today sharing a quick assembly tutuorial for Lori’s new Easter Egg Shaped Box.   This is such a great box and it’s very deep so it could hold a lot of candy!

When you cut the file these are the pieces you’ll have.

 

I cut the pieces for the top of the box in pink and the bottom in the floral.

First fold in all the glue tabs on the long pieces (sides) of the top and bottom of the box.

Apply glue to the glue tab on the end of the long panel and glue ends together.  Do this for the top and the bottom of the box.  It will look round at this point.

Next, insert one of the egg shaped pieces inside the base of the box.  Form the sides around the liner to create the egg shape.  Apply glue under the glue tabs and glue in place.  This part doesn’t have to be super neat since the next step will hide any excess glue that bleeds out from the edges of the tabs.  Repeat this step with the lid.

Finally, glue the cover panel for both the top and bottom in place to hide the glue tabs and give your box a finished appearance. I cut a piece of acetate by hand to fit behind the egg shaped window before applying the lid cover panel.  I like to apply the glue, put the panel in place and then press down from the inside to help adhere all the way to the edges.

Now you can embellish your box with stickers or additional die cuts.
