Gifting made special

Hi crafty folks,

It is festival time and time for greeting and gifting. I made box cards, which can hold candles, sweets, dry fruits etc. The cards have tags for writing your personal messages.

 I used Bob n Betty papers. The papers are gorgeous and quite thick. Easy to fussy cut the images. I used Papericious Sigma cardstock - 180 gsm for making flowers. I used Heartfelt Creations flower dies. Sit back and enjoy the pictures.

 A basic method to make this card box: ( sorry I don't have any pictures to support)

For card:

Cardstock - 11inches by 7 inches.

Score on the 11 inch side at 5 inches and 6 inches. You will have a card base of size 7 inches by 5 inches with 1 inch depth.

Box Base:

Cardstock - 6 inches by 7.5 inches

Score at 3/4 of an inch on all four sides. Cut the score line on the shorter side along the dotted line as in the picture.

 Crease the folds. Stick the tabs and adhere pattern paper.

Box cover 

Cardstock - 6 1/16 inches x 7 9/16 (61/16 is one small division on Martha Stewart score board after 6" and 7 9/16 is one small division after 7 1/2") 

Score 3/4 inches from all the sides and cut tabs as done for the box base. Cut a window before making the cover. Adhere an acetate sheet on the back side of the window. 

Stick pattern paper on the card base. Adhere the box on the inside, leave 1/8 of inch gap from the score line so that there is no difficulty in closing the card. Embellish as you would like. 

You can vary sizes of the box and card to any size. Hope the measurements were helpful. Don't forget to leave your comments below.

See you next time with more creations.

Till then..... Happy Crafting!
