For this Christmas time I wanted to create a special gift box for a special neighbor family.
The idea was to put sweets into a ‘book style’ lasercut box, engraved with an angel theme.
I created two versions of the design in Inkscape: one painted and one engraved only. The boxes have a side latch.
It took me two iterations and a few tweaks to get it right. Watering the live hinge helped to bend it without breaking it.
The box then gets filled with Hauggrüessli:
One box gets painted twice, here after the first paint:
Then the box get sanded and the surface protected with bee wax, ready to be filled with the sweets:
Happy Christmas 🙂
