Wide Letter Box Book

Product type: Collage Supplies

Tags: Die-Cut 3D

NOTE: Items cut from the thick, light-grey chipboard burn easily so the laser-cutting process may leave charcoal residue behind. Save yourself a headache, and just wipe the cut edges of these items down with a dry paper towel before assembling or painting. (The material may have changed since the photo was taken.)

Description

This is a set of 5 pieces of heavy chipboard, meant to be taped together to form a structure to hold an accordion book (not really a "box" as there are no sides to the structure).

Hint: when i taped my sample together, I used a skinny dowel between each piece, to keep the "bending" space between each piece consistent (you can't tape the pieces flush to each other or they won't have room to bend). And a suggestion from Nichola: use hockey stick tape (inspired! it's available in black or white, is 1" wide, and cheaper than linen tape).

Inspired by Design Team Member Laura Carson's Cigar Box Purse Book (though you needn't make a purse). Like Laura's project, the top of the box/book is wide enough for a handle or hardware.

Back to this item, also shown in photos above with related:
- Wide Letter Box Accordion Book
- Wide Accordion Book Letter Folder (same front size, but not as deep)
- Letters Plate - Wide (made to fit the flap)

When folded together, the finished piece is 5" wide x 3-3/4" tall (and 2" deep). Note: it is deep and made for some fat/highly embellished pages!

Design Team Member Kristin Batsel made a Butterfly Garden Journal (see the wide photo below). More info in the blog and/or see the supply list.
