If you've made scrolled boxes with conventional lids, you know that an ideal fit can sometimes be difficult to obtain. I accidentally cut this box just a bit too small for the lid, and to fix the problem, decided to cut a new lid. For a custom fit, I traced the outside of the box onto the lid pattern, and used this as my cutting line for the inside of the lid.
After cutting, I checked the size before I glued the lower piece to the top of the box. Next time, I'll just cut the box a little proud and save myself some trouble!
