Ahoy There Shine On ... Boat in A Pop Out Box with Tutorial...

Back to another of my All Day projects... I think this was the overall favourite!!
This project was borne from a mixture of my own idea(s) and further inspiration found on the web.... which all came together to form a lovely whole!!
I knew I was going to do a re-sized project (using 12x12 Shine On card) of my  Explosion Box Gift Card Holder (Tutorial & Emerald Envy version here, It's My Party version here)... and I wanted to put a sailing dinghy - or a car - or a bike  - or whatever - for the man each crafter was making for!!

And then I was sent a photo of this fabulous project by Jessica Winter with those immortal words " can we do something like this"... well yes... right up my plan/thoughts street!! The cake quickly becoming that sailing dinghy in my head!!
I then searched for the originator of the project (as I hadn't been sent a link)... and whilst I was looking I happened upon this fabulous project by Doreen... and then all those ideas in my head and on the screen just all pulled together...

Come back tomorrow to see the other version I made for my brother or Dad.... and maybe I should complete that sailing dinghy for hubby too...
And for those of you that love a Tutorial or Two....!

For the Box
1.       Take a 12x12 piece of Kraft cardstock
2.       Score at 4” and 8”
3.       Turn 90 degrees
4.       Score at 4” and 8”
5.       Bone Fold all score lines
6.       Cut 4 corner squares diagonally  (from outside corner to inside square/corner)
7.       Fold & adhere 2 diagonal sections from either side of central section onto the central section
8.       Repeat for opposing side
9.       Do the same for the 2 other central sections but do not glue down totally so as to form the pockets

For the Lid
1.       Cut a 5 7/8” Square of Kraft cardstock
2.       Score at 7/8” on all 4 sides
3.       Dart 2 scorelines on the one side
4.       Repeat for the opposing side
5.       Assemble and adhere the lid on the finished box ( ie the totally decorated box)

Recipe for Decoration
Bermuda Bay Card 9.9cm Square (approx. 3 7/8”) (x10)
Shine On Stripe/Cloud 9.3cm Square (approx. 3 5/8”) (x7)
Shine On Wiggle/Raindrop 9.3cm Square (approx. 3 5/8”) (x3)
Kraft 2.5cm (1”) x 12” (add Washi tape and bow punch to form bow parts)

For the Boat (Beware  - inches conversion not tried and tested!!!)
1.       Die cut 2 Cutie Pie triangles from Kraft cardstock
2.       On one of them, hand punch a small hole for the mast (centrally...about 1/2cm [3/8”] in from straight edge…)

3.       Cut a 16 x 3.5cm piece of Kraft cardstock [6 ¼” x 1 3/8”]

11.   Score PORTRAIT at 1 cm [3/8”]
12.   Bone Fold
13.   Dart 1cm [3/8”] section score lines as necessary to form the triangular box (you will know when you get there!!! I produced a template for my ladies to ease the process on the day – this also included a notch to allow for the punched circle for the mast…)
