Cute Ice Cube Box with Pull-Out Drawer

 
Well with a snow flake theme - I had to call this project my Ice Cube Box !!





This beautiful sturdy little project can be used as a gorgeous gift box or as a stackable storage box. I can see many possibilities for it.  Silver embossed with pretty snow flakes using my Flurry of Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set, this is an ideal Christmas Gift Box, making a small Christmas Present extra special.

Please note that Flurry of Wishes is also available as a "Bundle" which includes the co-ordinating Snow Flurry Punch.  Separately they retail at £ £19 and £16 respectively.  Bought as a "Bundle" they total £29.75 (saving you 15%).

The pull-out drawer construction coupled with double layering gives the cube added strength.  I used Silver 1/8" ribbon trim on the drawer..

I loved it so much I have also created a storage tower by stacking three of the completed boxes on top of each other and adhering together using very strong double-sided tape.   



I adhered a piece of 3 1/2" x  7  5/8 " cardstock to the back which I scored at 1/2" on the short side, flipped and scored again at 1/2" on the short side.   I then stuck panels to the sides which meadured 2  1/2 "  x 7  5/8".   Before sticking the sides I embossed lines around each edge.  

Then I cut a small square measuring 2  3/4" x 2  3/4",  and embossed lines around each edge.  This was then adhered to the top.  

I hope you enjoy this instructional video showing you how to construct the box:
