Star Box Tutorial with Corri

Hi everyone!  Corri here today sharing an assembly tutorial for the new 2 Compartment Star Box.  This fun box is so easy to assemble.

When you cut your box, this is what you’ll end up with.

First, you will form the two compartments of your box.  On the two large red pieces, fold along all the score lines.  Apply glue to one tab at a time and line up with the edge of the star base.  Give your glue a few seconds to dry before forming the points on the star so that the edges don’t slip.

Once your have the two halves formed, apply glue and press them together.   Hold them together for a little bit until the glue holds tight.

Now its time to form the lid.  Glue the two thin, long red pieces together to form a long strip.  Fold along all the score lines.  Match up the edges to make sure the line up to the star shape and then apply glue to one tab at a time and form the edges around the star shape.

Here’s how it looks from the outside.

After you from the lid, you can add the decorative cover piece (larger slit) and the trim pieces to the edge of the lid.

There you have it!  Super easy and so much fun!

Laura, visit the Lori’s Favorites button in the right side bar of the blog: http://shop.loriwhitlock.com/papercrafting-products/

This links out to Amazon and all of Lori’s favorite products for adhesive, paper, etc… Hope this helps! Those adhesives work great and won’t “pop apart”. I know what you’re talking about… it took me a while to find the right adhesives, too : )

This little star box is brilliant! Please tell me what you use for adhesive in these type of projects! I made a hat box which promptly popped apart! So disapointing! I’d like to try again, but know I’ll have same result unless I find appropriate glue! What is best? Please, if there are a few suitable ones? Here in Canada I may not find those specifically available in the USA. THANK YOU
