The Triangle Box

I am addicted to making this triangle box. Sara from the Crafter's Companion calls it a "wedge" box. She can make one in under 30 seconds. I decided to see if I could too!

My challenge arose from this amazing pack of paper I am presenting on The Shopping Channel on Tuesday. The Larger than Life pack from 3 Birds is going to knock your socks off. I need to show off the 18 different coloured and patterned papers....so out came my Ultimate!

I am not going to tell you how I made these boxes....you have to watch me next week! But I made 18 boxes in under an hour last night!

I am a triangle box making machine!
If only this tool was around when I got married....the truffle boxes would have been spectacular!

I scored all the cardstock before folding and closing the boxes with ribbon.

They really show off every sample in the paper kit. I want to display them as though they were pieces of cake.

I couln't stop making them! Look at what you can do with scrap leftovers! I had pieces of other papers in my studio that have been saved.

And I finally have a place to attach leftover embellishments.

This was a great paper making project! I can't wait to show them off on-air next week!
