A Trio of Canister Boxes

Hi Everyone

Today I have a very cute project, a canister box designed by Kelleigh Ratzlaff over at The Digichick.

There are just 2 pieces to this box, the body and the bottom - how easy is that?  Kelleigh has a great tutorial here, which I would really recommend taking a look at.  The boxes are super simple to put together, but folding the top down and getting it to look right can be a bit tricky - the first time I did it I folded 'petals' on the inside.

Here is a closer look at each box.

The paper I used is by Teresa Collins, and is from a line called 'Everyday Moments'.  If you have ever used Teresa Collins paper before you will know how thick and sturdy it is - great for making these boxes.  It is also double sided, here is a look at the box open so you can see the other side of the paper.

And a close look at the top of the box - so pretty.

Of course I had to finish the boxes off with a little tag using one of my favorite images from Krista Smith over at Saturated Canary called 'Boobie Love' (which is currently free in her shop.)

Don't forget to check out Kelleigh's Files at The Digichick, there is currently 40% off store-wide.

See you next time, thanks for stopping by.



  1. Michelle,
    I love these boxes and want to give them a try. Your choice of paper and image for the tag works so well together. What settings did you use to cut the TC paper on the Cameo?

    1. Thanks DeAnna. I used the settings for textured cardstock (80lbs) preset on the Cameo, but upped my blade from 5 to 6. It cut beautifully.

  2. What elegant boxes! I love the papers you have chosen and look at you doing so much coloring! You go girl! Hope you had a great time with your friend.
