Create A Clam Shell Style Memory Box From Scratch With Graphic 45 Paper

January 19, 2018 — 5 Comments

Thanks to the snowy weather we have been having up here I have managed to record a decent length video on how I made a cool clamshell memory box and wanted to share it with you.

As there was a fair bit to blog about I have split this into a multipart post. Instructions on how to navigate it will be shown at the bottom of each page, together with a link if you would like to skip straight to the video.

Before I go ahead with all of that, let me show you the project.

Create A Clamshell Style Keepsake Treasure Box With Graphic 45 Paper

Gorgeous isn’t it?!

This version, which measures 3″ x 3″ x 3″, was made from one sheet of 12″ x 12″ Graphic 45 paper and some black cardstock. I combined this with a few bits and pieces that I have in my stash. You could, of course, do it from whatever you fancy.

A fuller list of what tools were involved are given in the video.

Ok, so the first step is to trim the 12″ x 12″ cardstock down to 9″ wide. Then, it was onto the scoring.

Downloads showing the measurements are on the next page.

    Hi, I am new to your website and have just purchased my SNC2. Am wondering if this Clam Shell Memory Box can be made on the SNC2?
