# How to set slanting shaded box and also hyphen box using tcolorbox

Good day! Hi everyone, here I am using tcolorbox package I have two types of box styles, one is slanted shaded type and another one is without slant and hyphen border around it. I highlighted box one in "RED" color and box two style in "GREEN" color. Please suggest how to resolve this.

MWE:

\documentclass[12pt]{article}

\RequirePackage[most]{tcolorbox}
\usetikzlibrary{patterns}

\newenvironment{Boxtwo}{\begin{tcolorbox}[bicolor,colback=white,colbacklower=white,
colframe=black,tikznode lower={inner sep=2pt,draw=red,fill=yellow}]
}{\end{tcolorbox}}

\begin{document}

\begin{Boxtwo}%[WORKED E.G. 1.1]
\begin{itemize}
\item Solving number sentences with multiple operations with or without brackets
\item Writing number sentences to describe problem situations
\item Checking solutions by substitution
\item Using properties of operations on whole numbers to simplify number sentences
\end{itemize}
\end{Boxtwo}

• The hyphen border is possible with the borderline options of tcolorbox, but the slanting is a little bit tedious -- both however are examples of bad design, in my point of view – user31729 Feb 20 at 8:11

You will have to adjust margins, spacing, colors, font, etc., but you have something to start

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[most]{tcolorbox}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{lmodern}

\begin{document}
\begin{tcolorbox}[
enhanced,
frame hidden,
colback=cyan!10,
top=3mm,
overlay={%
\draw[rounded corners, red, dashed, ultra thick] (frame.north west) rectangle (frame.south east);
\node[font=\Huge\sffamily\bfseries, text=blue, anchor=west, rotate=5] at ([xshift=5mm] frame.north west) {Some title};},
]
\lipsum[1]
\end{tcolorbox}

\begin{tcolorbox}[
enhanced,
frame hidden,
colback=white,
top=3mm,
underlay={%
\fill[orange!30, rounded corners] (frame.north west)--([shift={(1mm,1mm)}]frame.north east)--([shift={(3mm,-3mm)}]frame.south east) -- ([shift={(0mm,-1mm)}]frame.south west) -- cycle;
\fill[white, rounded corners] (interior.north west) rectangle (interior.south east);},
overlay={%
\node[font=\Huge\sffamily\bfseries, text=blue, anchor=west, rotate=5] at ([xshift=5mm] frame.north west) {Some title};},
]
\lipsum[1]
\end{tcolorbox}
\end{document}
