2-Tier Box Tutorial


The 2-tier box (pictured above) that I posted in my previous posting, HERE, was the first 2-tier box I made. I encountered a few small problems while putting it together.  I've made a few adjustments to the original design and measurements.  So this tutorial is for, though not exactly the same, a similar 2-Tier Box.  And I like to think it has better construction.

(The measurements on my scoreboard are in inches, so the step-by-step instructions below are in inches.  For those of you who work in centimetres, I've included the templates in centimetres also.  However they're not exact conversion of the ones in inches.  I used the same template drawings though because I'm too lazy...hee draw another set of templates and just inserted the cm measurements, so they're not to scale, okay?  The metric box is a wee bit smaller, but the measurements are ones that I think are easy to work with.  And yes, you can fit 4 Ferrero Rocher chocolates in each drawer...yay.)

Cardstock pieces required:
one - 7 1/4" x 7 1/4"
two - 9" x 9"
one - 6 1/2" x 6 3/4"
one - 6 1/2" x 7 1/4"

- rotate 90 degrees and score at 1 5/8" and 4 7/8"

Step 8
Cut and fold as per templates above.

Step 9
Join the 2 pieces together as shown below.

Step 10
Glue in place to form the sides of your box.

Step 11
Glue one of the drawers as shown below, to form the right-side bottom drawer.

Step 12
Glue the other drawer a shown below, to form the left-side top drawer.

Step 13
There you have it!  Now you can decorate the box as you desired.

I'm working on decorating my box further with cutie images and embellishments.  I'll post it when I'm done.

That's it for now.  Have fun crafting!

Oh Norma, Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!!!
You make everything look so much easier than I can figure them out. I made one of these with 4 drawers, it is cute but not real sturdy. Now I can make a smaller and sturdy one ;-)
