Beach Boy Flip Top Box

Beach Boy Flip Top Box-JMRush

Approximate size: W 4" X  H 5.25” X D 1.5”

The Beach Boy Flip Top Box has a top that is attached to the box base on one side and a tab closure on the other side. This file is great for party favors or to use as a centerpiece for your summer parties. This design is compatible with 8x12 or 12X12 mats.
You can purchase this design here:

1.Cut design pieces. ( I used double sided card stock) 
2. Line up the box base sections as the picture shows. Fold the tab on the right side section and apply glue to the tab’s backside.
3. Secure the tab to the left box base section. ( You want the tab to be on the inside of your box) Fold the score lines on the right side of the box base.
4. Apply glue to the small side tabs- one on the top and one on the bottom ( where my thumb and finger are in the picture)
5. Secure to the rectangular tab shapes creating 90 degree angles.
6. Fold the score lines on the left side of the box base.
7. Apply glue to the backside of the tabs closest to the center- one on the top and one on the bottom. 
8. Secure to the center strip.
9. Apply glue to the top and bottom tab that are facing you. 
10. Secure the rectangular flaps to the left
11. Apply glue to the outside edges of the 90 degree angle on the right lower section. 
12. Secure to the inside of the left lower section.
13. Repeat for the upper section.
14. This is what your box should look like.
15. I flipped the box so that the tab is on the right upper section. Tuck the tab into the slot on the lower section to close.
16. Glue the two largest pieces (solid) to the front of your box.
17. Glue the cut out swim trunk design piece to the short solid swim trunk design piece. Glue the belly button ( small circle) to the box base.
18. Glue the thin strip with cut outs to the top of the lower section. Use foam adhesive squares to attach the combined swim trunks.
19. Finish with ribbon for the tie string of the swim trunks:)
