Hello again! Nice to have you visiting. Sunday is a card “party” with a new group of folks and I had created cards for the hostess and determined they definitely needed a box for them. The finished box size is 6″ x 4 1/2″, just right for holding five standard A2 cards. Here’s the finished look…

Here are the super easy directions…

For the base:

  • Cut card stock (I used Pool Party) 8 1/2″ x 7″ and score at 1 1/4″ on all sides. Burnish and snip ends – see photo… add Tear ‘n Tape to corners and seal.

This is the inside of the box lid – perhaps you can better see the clip lines

For the top:

  • Cut Painted Poppies DSP 8 1/2″ x 7″ and score 1 1/4″ on all sides. Scoring… Use a shim or a piece of card stock to hold against the left edge of the scoring tool, place the DSP against it and score. This shim or extra paper gives just the right of extra for the lid to fit snugly without buckling the sides of the box.
  • Burnish all sides, trim as per the box base, add Tear ‘n Tape adhesive to box edges. Adhere one corner then place on box bottom and continue with other corners. Box lid will fit perfectly – not too tight but snugly.

Thanks for stopping by today. Would enjoy seeing your project when you create a gift card box.
