I was asked the question : can they be made bigger....and the answer is yes!
I had to check my design out first...just to be sure....didn't think there would be a problem...there was however one drawback! The parchment I had in my stash!! I wanted to make the biggest box I could but the largest Parchment I had was 12 x 12 cm. From this I made a 10cm Square Pyramid Box.
If you are reading this post then you will want to know my formula!
(You will still have to read the original post on how to make the boxes)
Size of Parchment Required
5cm Square Base = 15 x 15cm 6cm Square Base = 18 x 18cm 7cm Square Base = 21 x 21cm
12 x 12
8cm Square Base = 24 x 24cm 9cm Square Base = 27 x 27cm 10cm Square Base = 30 x 30 cm
11cm Square Base = 33 x 33cm 12cm Square Base = 36 x 36 cm 13cm Square Base = 39 x 39cm
Mark for Triangle Insert
('Dot' on instructions)
This mark should be placed at (1 cm) less than the length of one side of Square Base
5cm Square Base = Dot marked at (4cm) out from edge of embossed square
8cm Square Base = Dot marked at (7cm) out from edge of embossed square
11cm Square Base = Dot marked at (10cm) out from edge of embossed square
I would also like to point out that in the Larger Pyramid Box I decided to use the Outer Edge of the Nested Ovals Groovi Plate to get my curve...just to see if it would work as well as the Nested Circles.
As you can see...it did!!
I hope these measurements are helpful to any who are going to make the boxes.
If you do, please let me know as I would love to see your versions.
If you do not have a blog of your own then I would be happy to share it for you.
