Box for A2 Cards

SU! 2020-2022 In Color Box for Flowers for Every Season Memories and More Cards and Envelopes

Hi Everyone.. Yesterday I shared five cards made from the Flowers for Every Season Memories and More Card Pack, Cards & Envelopes. They were really fun to do! Because they are kind of a ‘set’, I made a box for them – and here it is… and so easy…

Flowers For Every Season memories and More Gift Card Box

Here are the measurements…

  • for the bottom: 7 1/4 x 9 1/4,  scored on each side at 1 5/16. I used Thick Whisper White for a firm base. Burnish all sides, trim as shown and add Tear ‘n Tape, also where shown
  • for the top: 7 1/4 x 9 1/4, scored on each side at 1 1/4. I used Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In Color . Burnish all sides, trim as shown and add Tear ‘n Tape, also where shown.
Box, cutting & tape positioning #2
  • Remove cover on tape and put together with the small tabs going to the inside of the box.
  • For the top:
    • Whisper White 4 1/2 x 6 1/2, 1 x 6 1/2 ( x 2), 1 x 4 1/2 (x 2)
    • 2020-2022 In Color 6×6 DSP (Cinnamon Cider) 4 x 6 (x 2), 3/4 x 6 (x 2), 3/4 x 4 (x 2)
    • Adhere DSP to Whisper White then adhere to the Cinnamon Cider top and sides
    • Decorate: Create a belly band & bouquet
      •  cut a 1 x 12 strip of coordinating DSP. I used World of Good SDSP. Wrap around entire box. Since this is about 1/2″ short of reaching around the box, adds a strip of Thick Whisper White to pull ends together on the backside and on top. See photo…

        Sides of box #4
      • Cut a panel from Whisper White using the Timeless Label Punch and adhere over the top of the two strips. This creates your belly band.
      • Belly Band for box #3
        • Stamp the daisies from the Daisy Lane stamp set, 2 medium and 2 large using Bumblebee ink and Whisper White cs. Punch out using the coordinating Daisy Medium and Large punches. Curl the petals with a bone folder and adhere together with liquid glue.
        • Using the Forever Flourishing Dies, cut out two leaves, one from Just Jade and one from Whisper White. Adhere with liquid glue to the Timeless Label punch panel.
        • Adhere the daisy over the leaves. Tie a bow with the Whisper White 1/2″ Faux Linen Ribbon from the Flowers For Every Season Combo Pack and adhere with a glue dot. Slip this carefully over the box… DONE! Easy, right?!

Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Gift Card Box

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.
