I spent some time putting together this little tutorial on how to make the 4x4 lidless box I used for my be warm drink gift set. I wasn't able to find just the right sized container, so I decided to make my own! Have fun with it!
What you need:
2 - 4"x9" rectangles
2 - Just-shy of 4" squares
4 - 1.5"xJust-shy of 4" rectangles, complimentary color
2 - 1.5"x12" rectangles (some will be trimmed as excess) OPTIONAL
Embellishments, scissors, adhesive, etc.
Overlap one of the 1" sections with one of the 4" sections with good adhesive so you have four 4" squares in a row, and a 1" rectangle at one end. I like to use a liquid glue for the gluing process so I have a bit of time for wiggling things into place.
Embellish as you'd like! I used the 1.5"x12" strips of patterned paper around my box. I did end up trimming off about 7" or 8", but it was just easier to start with two full length 12" strips and trim them down as needed.
