Card Box Two


Card stock, designer paper desired, adhesive, scissors, decorative dies, scissors and Countryside Bouquet Deluxe stamp set. 

Step 1:

 Cut a piece of card stock 9 inches length x 7 inches width. Score a 1 inch border on all four sides of card stock. Pre-fold and snip ends as shown.

Step 2:

Add adhesive to end tabs that are snipped. Fold inward to form box base. This is what it should look like. Basic box bottom, set aside.

Step 3:

Cut a piece of card stock 4 1/2 inch width x 7 inch length. Score a 1 inch border on three sides.

Step 4:

Take desired die (shown A2 Curved Borders One) place at an angle above the scored line edge. Leave enough space to have a triangle look to the box. Hopefully that makes sense

Step 5:

This is what it should look like after cut. Cut the right (1 inch scored ) panel off. See below picture if needed.

Step 6:

Snip corner tab along scored line. Add adhesive to edge of each 1 inch panel

Step 7:

Start with the bottom panel and slide into box base and adhere. You will have the panel sticking out like this

Step 8:

Before we adhere the left side, snip off the edges of the corner tab as shown. This will help the box flex a bit when you fold in the tab. Fold in and adhere to the box base

Step 9:

Box is ready to decorate as desired

Step 10:

My final box has added gingham to the bottom (and side panels) so when the cards are used they have a splash of pattern. My flowers are from Countryside Bouquet Deluxe clear stamp set. They are all cut out and popped up for dimension. One of the cards inside and envelope. Easily this can fit anywhere from 6-8 cards and envelopes if they are not bulky. The sentiment is from Best Day Ever stamp set. All the flower petals have added sparkle for fun. Enjoy!
