Toady I’m going to share a “How To” make a Card Box for all the lovely cards you make. Ever think about making sets and giving them as Gifts? Well now you can ……this is how
Paper Cutter and Scoring Blade
Designer Series Paper and any embellishments you may like.
1-Cut Card Stock to 10 x 81/2
2-Score at 2” on all 4 sides
3- Cut across the tabs with your paper snips to create a more finished box.
4-Cut up to score lines
5- Score really well with your bone folder. It really helps make a neat box to have nice crisp and creased lines. Whooo…say that fast five time!!!
6- Add Sticky Strip where indicated (close to the score line so there are no gaps)
7-Peel off Sticky Strip and build your corners.
See how nice the inside looks!
8- Cut the top of the box at 6 5/8 x 8 1/8
9- Score box top on all four sides at 1 inch
10- Cut tabs at an angle with your snips, same as the bottom fo the box
11: Add Sticky Strip and a glue dot as the little corners are so little (it’s just easier)…then build your top.
12-I made a black mat measuring 4 1/4 x 5 3/4 and used a piece of DSP measuring 4 x 5 1/2 and taped together.
Add to the top of your box. I tied a double bow using Black Satin Ribbon and taped to the back of the mat before sticking it down.
I had an extra flower made in Melon Mambo using our new Fun Flower Die and attached it with Glue Dots.
So that’s it!!! Let me know if you liked it!
Now to figure out what to make to put in the inside. Obviously a pretty set of note cards for someone…..back to the drawing board!! By the way…this box will hold 8-12 cards and Envelopes easily!
Have a wonderful Day Everyone!!!
