Watch Along Wednesday - beautiful boxes with the Double-Sided Box Dies

Welcome back to another incredible installment of our Watch Along Wednesday series! Today, we're all about gifting and time saving die-cutting concepts... yep, we're chatting about the Double-Sided Box Dies! These fantastic sets of dies have been designed to cut two lots of card to produce a lid and base with ease, so if that sounds like something that's up your street, this is the post for you.

There are four different designs in this collection, however, for this post, David Falcon is focusing on the Triangle Box set. Featuring three dies to help you create two different box sizes and a label, this is a great set if you want to create gift boxes with a unique look.

Take a look at the video below to see how David uses the Double-Sided Box Dies and how he creates tall gift boxes for a bit of inspiration!


The concept behind these dies is that one die features a design on each side to help you create a box base and lid with ease. They will help you to save time, whilst giving you that precise and accurate cut that you know and love from our range of dies. Instead of having to roll two individual dies through the machine to create two elements, you will only need to use the one.

The plate combination for the double-sided dies is as follows:

Clear Cutting Plate
Green Cutting Plate for Double Sided Dies
300gsm Cardstock
Double Sided Die
300gsm Cardstock
Green Cutting Plate for Double Sided Dies
Clear Cutting Plate

It's not recommended that you use the Double-Sided Dies with your regular cutting plates, as they are too thin to withstand the pressure caused by die-cutting on both sides of the die. Instead, you will need to use our specially formulated Double-Sided Die Cutting Plates, which are much thicker.

We hope that this post has given you a bit of inspiration when it comes to your next gift box project. If saving time for precious decorating is something that you'd like, we definitely can't recommend the Double-Sided Box Dies enough. Make sure you stick around til next week to see another Chrismassy edition of Watch Along Wednesday, and be sure to send us photos of your boxy makes on social using the #WatchAlongWed hashtag!
