Project Cut Files

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Download the cutfile for CCR and cut out pieces. When I cut out the Southwest pieces I used 3 mats and left all pieces on the mat until I put them all together, it is easier this way to know what goes where. I also made a video showing me putting them together.
For the base of the box you will need to score the two pieces at 1/2" and 5" and fold and then for the lid, score at 1" on every side. Cut 1" up on the score line on the right til you touch the other score line, turn and do to every side. Ad adhesive to the right of the cut on the whole square. Then fold under the piece to the left and adhere together. This part 2 video will show everything.
Here are the layer pieces and how they should be applied to the box, the narrow pieces are for the sides of the lid. I did ink the edges of these. Apply the Southwest designs to the box before you put the box together. After you have all the designs on put adhesive on the 1/2" tab and put box together, by putting the tab under the next base piece and then adhering the other tab to the other end. Again you may want to watch the video.
I added all the other images, Kokopelli and wolf and lizards after the box was together. I ,made them in black to kinda look like they were a shadow and to not take away from the color on the box.
