Faux Wood Ankh Box

Well, I finished Rick Riordan's Red Pyramid. You can read my review here if you're interested. I decided to do at least 2 more Egyptian inspired boxes. This is the first one using one of my favorite templates. It's the slanted sides box that I've used in the past for stained glass effects.
This time I was trying for a faux wood effect inlaid with lapis lazuli and malachite.
I hope you enjoy it. Click on the images for the full sized 100 ppi files to print and assemble. This box really does need to be pre-folded before gluing or taping it together, but it makes a fairly generous sized box that's just really one of my favorites.


  1. This is one of my favorites, it's so pretty! Thanks so much, I'll be linking.

  2. lid is too big for box!

  3. Wyograny- Actually, it's fitted just a bit tight. Did you print it out to fit the page or print it out at 100 ppi exactly? My example box is made from the same images posted and the lid fits perfectly.
    You need to print both images at exactly 100% at 100 ppi. Printing it to fit the page will result in different sizes.
