Beer Can Gift Box
Oops, is it really a whole week since I said I'd post this?!
This is another sample I made for the Spring Stamposium. My friend Lynn's husband kindly donated me an empty Bud can (he's so generous!)
I tried making the base of the box with the tin can but it didn't do well with all that folding so I made the inside just using regular card stock and made the outer sleeve with the can. The Matchbox Die cut and scored the can easily but when I made sharp folds the can tore so before I folded it I covered the reverse side of the can with packing tape, that way when I made the sharp folds it didn't break apart.
We'll be using our little box to put a Father's Day gift in, maybe some beer money!
Have a great weekend!
