Stepper Box

I stumbled across my first pic of a stepper box a few days ago while surfing the gallery over at Splitcoaststampers. I quickly fell in love, but after looking at pic after pic, I couldn't find any links to the tutorial. Finally after I posted a desperate plea on a SCS thread, I was directed to the treasure.
I made my stepper box using those thin cardboard sheets that sometimes come in a cardstock or designer paper package. They are thick enough to be sturdy, but thin enough to be cut with my paper trimmer. I also used a thin cardstock for the inner boxes, but a thicker cardstock for the lid. Everything else was used according to the tutorial directions.
What fun I had with this little gem of a project but be forewarned that it is fairly time consuming...at least this first one was. It was fun to fold those Oragami boxes again! I haven't done that since high school! LOL! Also make sure that if you choose to put images or sentiments on the inside panels like I did, that you don't use dimensionals at all. I used some for my sentiment and had a hard time getting my box to close.
Here are some more pics:

The box measures (when closed) 5 1/4" x 2 3/8". The boxes inside are the perfect size for mini candies, images, Primas, or anything else that you can fill them with!

Lastly, because I don't want you to have to search for the tutorial on this box, you can find it here: The Stepper Box by Terri Digness

If you decide to make one, could you possibly comment and let me see your creation by adding a link to your completed project?? I'd love to come "oooh" and "ahhh" over what I'm sure will be a fabulous design!

Thanks for stopping by!
