Lovely Roll Up Box

I was recently searching for some interactive paper craft ideas and I came across this awesome roll up box. It isn't as hard to create as it appears but it does use quite a bit of paper. To give you an idea of the size, each inside box is 1 3/4" x 7" so there is lots of room for treats or other gifts. This would make a terrific box for Christmas but I chose to create one with a generic theme. 

One thing to note - directional patterned papers are hard to use as the patterns will be sideways when the box is closed but upright when the boxes are rolled out. It is probably better to use non-directional patterned paper for this project.

I chose to use the Lovely paper pack and coordinating cardstock. Since there are six double sided papers in that pack, there are 12 patterns available. 

The top was created using a border die - it is easiest to do if the pattern is one that can be flipped to match the second cut. I had to line up the die and cut it twice to get the 7" piece. Those pieces are held together using velcro dots, therefore holding the package together. 

So... here are some photos. The picture of the inside doesn't show the heart or leaf pattern running in the correct direction as the flap is open, but it is facing the right way up! I stamped a sentiment and added a few little extras at the top of the box.
