Card in a Box Instructions

I had a huge response for my instructions on My Card in a Box.   I figured it would be best to just post it right here.  I really wish that I was confident enough to do videos.  Here is the card again.

and here are the insructions.

Card in a Box

  1. Cut card stock to measure 9” by 6”.
  2. Score along the 9” end, 2 1/8”, 4 ¼”, 6 3/8” , and 8 ½”.
  3. Turn 90° and score at 2 ¾”.
  4. For the ‘Z’ inserts inside the box. Cut 2 ¼” by 3 1/8” and on 3 1/8” side score at   1/2”  and at 2 5/8”.  Cut this piece in half at 1 1/8” on  2 1/4” side.  Fold tabs up in a ‘Z’ and adhere sticky strips to ends.  Set aside.
  5. Take main card stock so that the 2 ¾” side is at the bottom and cut along the small square score lines  to make flaps.  Trim of the tiny strip left over and discard.
  6. Fold the crease and use a strong double-sided tape to adhere the box together.
  7. For the back of box, put card stock measuring 5 7/8” by 2” to write on.
  8. Now you can decorate the flaps.  Use DSP cut to measure 2” by 2 5/8”.
  9. Optional:  You can also decorate the outside bottom of the box by cutting DSP or Cards stock 2” by 3 1/8”.
  10. Add two ‘Z’ strips to the inside of the box.  You will use these panels to stick all your flowers, or stuff for your card in a box that you want to ‘pop’ out of the box.
  11. Embellish as desired.  Create you own envelope for this card using the envelope punch board.

I hope that you can follow these instructions. 

Have a wonderful day.
