A Pretty Wild Teddy Bear in a Box (well you'd be wild, if you were in a Box) - #159

OK, I know, more cuteness, but I am getting ready for a stall at an event in a few weeks, so it really helps me if my projects bare (or should that be 'Bear'?) that in mind.

A Little Wild Gift Box and stamped Tissue Paper

I found instructions for how to fold a facecloth/flannel into a Teddy Bear on Pinterest and knew that these would have to feature on my stall, add a box and some stamped tissue paper and it turns an ordinary item into a really sweet little gift, so what is not to love about that.

As you know, I love making boxes of all shapes and sizes, but these are huge, particularly when you remember that they only use two pieces of A4 card, with some scraps left over. The finished dimensions are 6 x 4 x 2" (15.25 x 10.1 x 5cm).

Dimensions needed to make the box are:
Base - 10 x 8" (25.4 x 20.3cm) scored at 2" (5cm) on each side
Lid - 9-1/16 x 7-1/16" (23 x 17.85cm) scored at 1-1/2" (3.75cm) on each side
The extra 1/16" (about 1mm) for the lid is so that it is a snug, not tight, fit, it is so much easier to add this tiny amount that fiddling it at the stage of making it up, and gives a much more professional finish.
