The Day After Demo #1! One sheet Hinged Box - Tutorial

Well, what can I say?!
Such a FABLOUS day!!!!! :)

I left early (remembering this time to eat breakfast to keep my strength up lol!) and arrived in good time to settle myself in.
Terri the owner of The Craft Den was very welcoming and offered me a tea/coffee before the shop opened whilst we were arranged where to put the samples. :)

I think overall that the demo went well, there were lots of people in the shop and I had some very friendly ladies sit for a while to watch me demo the samples and some techniques (and have a craft related chat!) throughout the whole day.
Everyone was so lovely and couldnt have made me feel more welcome and I even had to be reminded that I needed to stop for lunch, especially when the very talented Sue turned up with a GORGEOUS chocolate cake! Yum! :)

Anyway, the point of this post is that I promised to share the measurements for one of the favourite samples of the day, a one sheet of card Hinged Box (aka a Pizza Box).

 A very simple box (even if my diagram doesn't show it!) but there were so many suggestions of different uses for them and ideas for adjusting the size to fit specific items and that along with the fact they are so simple to produce (very quickly!) makes them a big hit!

EDITED TO ADD : Oops! Forgot to mention about the covers.
You can make these using nesties or just rectangles of card slightly larger than your finished box and cut the edges with decorative scissors etc.

Enjoy! Ni. x :)
