  1. I did day1 per your meaurements and what you have posted is incorrect. I too ended up with a lid too big. Biggest disappointed was in I only had one sheet of the paper I wanted to use and it was wasted. Please correct day 1! Thank you.

    • Hi Nancy, so sorry to hear that has happened. I have double checked all my measurements and they appear to be correct. In the video, I cut my card incorrectly by 0.5″. Hopefully you can rescue your box like I did by making the lid smaller.
      Best wishes, Helen

  2. Lovely video, thankyou. I will definitely be trying these out. My favourite is the red too but they do look great together!
