Christmas Cantilever Box Part 1

Positivelypapercraft cantilever box tutorial


Hi Everyone!!
I am so excited to be back with some fantastic tutorials in stead of Dies all the time! So lets kick it off with this amazing Cantilever box!! I have made mine in a Christmas theme but you can do yours whatever style you prefer. I LOVE this box & trust me!! Its no where near as hard as it may look!!!

I have split the tutorial into 2 parts, only because i wanted to take my time and make sure you understand how to make this box. I would say the time consuming part is cutting out all the little mats & layers etc. The actual construction of the box is pretty quick and simple. Part 2 will either be on tonight or tomorrow.
