Di's Dies - Top Note Die and Box Tutorial

Top Note Bigz
Note: 11.8 x 9.2 cm. Use Standard 
Cutting Pads. Cut single layer.
 £18.95 113463

This was the first die I bought from Stampin Up! and believe me it has had lots and lots of use because it is so versatile. 

It can be a box:


1. Start out with a 9″x 6″ (23 cms x 15 cms) sheet of paper. Score one inch (2.5 cms) in on each side. Then, along the 9″ side, score at 4″ (10 cms)  and 5″(12.5 cms).  Cut the folds 1″ (2.5 cms)  to the score line along the middle score line and on one side.

2. Next, cut away the two scored sides of the opposite box end. This portion will be the box lid.

3. Fold the box into shape, tuck the little tabs that you sniped along the inside, and adhere with sticky strip. You can also round the edges of the box lid to finish it off. You can use whatever you like to keep the box closed.  

4. Now, cut four Top Note die shapes using the Big Shot. Two of the shapes should be with normal card stock because it’s thicker and two should be cut with patterned paper, if you want to decorate the outside of your box. The two layers will give the cover a little more strength. Then, adhere these covers to the top and bottom of the box that you made.
