Box hinge

I decided to create a really fun kind of Shabby-Chic box using the Petal Palette Bundle and rather than a single hinged lid, I created a double!


Gather Your Supplies:

  • 2 pieces of 4×5", score at 1 1/2" and 2 1/2" on the 4" side, and turn and score at 1" and 4" on the 5" side

It was much easier than I anticipated to put together and I LOVE how pretty the watercolored flowers are against the gray box.
