Alice in Wonderland Book Nook

Learn how to assemble this little paper portal to Wonderland.

Materials

Instructions

  • Use your cutting machine or X-ACTO knife, along with my template, to cut out all of the pieces of this Alice in Wonderland book nook.
    Note: If you are using the SVG files that includes the score lines, don’t forget to set them as such in Cricut Design Space and attach them to their shapes before sending them through your cutting machine. I used a lime green color to mark the score lines, so hopefully that helps! If you’re having trouble with the score lines, check out this video.

Assembling the Decorative Layers

  • Layer the pieces of decorative sections together: the trees, the silhouette frames, the castle, the hedge maze, and Alice herself.

Assembling the Interior

  • Attach the interior panels to one of the dark purple walls using the tabs/slits provided. From back to front attach: the blue pathway, the hedge maze, the green heart entryway, the grey playing card panel, and the white playing card panel. Attach two of the heart trees to the interior of the purple wall, in between the layers.
    Note: If you are having trouble positioning the walls and figuring out which slits go where, the rear panels are closer together and the panels near the front are more spread out.
    Then, attach the opposite wall, using the tabs on the other side of the panels.
    Take the blue rectangle and attach it to the bottom of the panels using the tabs/slits provided.

Assembling the Exterior

  • Layer the decorative panels on top of the light purple box pieces.
    Next, attach the clipboard panels to the interior of the light purple box pieces.
    Attach the castle panel to the inside of the back wall and Alice’s panel to the inside of the front wall.
  • Fold the tabs on the front, back, and bottom panels along the score lines.
    Next, take the interior section previously completed and attach the bottom panel to the base.
    Then, attach the front and back walls to the interior section.
    Finish by attaching the side walls as well as the framed silhouettes. Add any other decorative elements that you’d like, and your book nook is complete!

Notes

When assembled, this project is about 10" tall, 4.25" wide, and 6.25" deep.

I had so much fun making this delectable little design! And I was so excited to finally put my candy jar patterned paper to good use. I’ve had it on hand for a little while now, and it just went so perfectly with this project.

This treat box is a great way to package a special little something, and works as a fun display piece that the recipient can utilize, even after the treats or trinkets are removed.

    Love this file. It is easy to follow even though it looks like it would be complex with all the little accent pieces. Thanks, again!
