From Dips - Something Triangular

When you were at school, did you ever think you would need to use a2 + b2 = c2 in conjunction with crafting?  Well that's what I did to work out how to turn the new Tonic Studios Keepsake Box die into a triangular favour box!

Card Recipe:
Tools: Tonic Studios Balloon Weight Keepsake Box Dies, Christmas Inserts Dies, Layering Rectangles Dies, Grand Calibur 
Paper and Card: Textured, First Edition
Embellishments: Rhinestone Button

As you know, I always like to show you how to use your dies in different ways, so when you see this new die, don't just think of boxes!  All it took to transform the box template into a triangle was my craft knife, a metal ruler and using one of the dies from the Layering Rectangles set.

The topper comes from another new die set called Christmas Inserts.  This is another really versatile set that won't just tie you down to Christmas projects.

If you'd like to see how I transformed the four-sided box into a triangular one, leave a message in the comments section below and I'll do a step-by-step tutorial.

Here's another look of this new box (very Toblerone)!
Hope you enjoyed these alternative ideas
