*First and foremost I wanted to say how happy I am that everyone has enjoyed my drawings as much as they have. You all give me all these different unique windows into your world and I get a huge kick out of it. I really like the idea of having something to give back to the community. I feel like you deserve it. I'll definitely make a point to do this again sometime. Probably in the next week or two. *
Anyway, this is a follow up to my playing card gift box tutorial. In part one I covered the basic cube box. In part 2 we'll go over how to construct a double wide box with a handle in the lid. This article assumes you have already read part 1 and are familiar with the concepts taught in it.
To start with a double wide box you'll need to make 10 walls total. Once you've made 10 walls total take three walls and join them with 2 connectors as shown.
Repeat so you have two sets of 3 walls joined. These will make up the front back and sides of your box.
Using the principles in part 1 and 2 you can go nuts creating all kinds of boxes. I've never gone beyond a double wide myself but I've seen some big, crazy looking ones. I will do a part three in the future covering handles for single wide boxes and lips to allow the box to shut more securely. Anyone kind of try this project out and post pictures let me know and I'll give you a shout out. Also, stay tuned next week for another chance to get a drawing done.
As always I try to make these directions as clear as I can but if you are having trouble with something feel free to let me know.
