the back of the calendar
The pulls are made by hot glueing a ribbon loop unter the number of each box...this is strong and study enough to stand up to the gentle pull needed to open each box.
I saw the paper cutting pattern for the majority of my boxes on this video by Laura....Following the Paper Trail....the rest of the design was my own...tho I am sure someone somewhere has done it too.....The triple compartments are made by measuring the interior of the box...divided into three...when I cut the paper I backed off the shorter measurement on one side by 1/16 of an inch to give some room...then I just assembled a 'lid' just like the ones I've made for my explosion boxes.
Hope you enjoyed my calendar...wish me luck on the class submission! and oh....Merry Christmas....LOL
