Card In A Box



I  have no idea who designed these, but the Card In A Box is very popular right now so I decided to teach my Club how to make them.  They look much more complicated then they really are.  I think the hardest part (or the most time consuming) is stamping and punching out all the flowers.  The rest is very easy.  The best part is it fits inside a regular Medium Envelope.

Here are some quick directions on how to make this Card In A Box.

Cut a piece of cardstock 5 1/2″ x 9″.  Score at 2 1/8″, 4 1/4″, 6 3/8″ and 8 1/2″.


Turn the paper and score at 2 3/4″.


Cut on all four score lines up to the score line going across and snip off the bottom half inch as shown in the picture.  Put a piece of Sticky Tape on the little end.


Fold at the vertical score lines.


Attach tab to the inside of the box so it can not be seen.  Fold down three of the sides, leaving one unfolded.  Your box should look like this.


Take a 2″ x 3 1/8″ piece of cardstock and score at 1/2″ and 2 5/8″.  Then cut the piece in half the long way so you can two pieces of scored cardstock that are 1″ x 3 1/8.


Fold scored lines as shown below.  Put a piece of Sticky Tape on each end.


Attach these pieces to the inside of the box so they look like this.  You don’t need to worry if they are not exactly straight because you won’t see them once they are decorated.


Then decorate your box as you wish.
