Card Box FREE Tutorial

Ladies


I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, this little box.  I make so many cards and I am always excited to find a cute way to package them.  So love the Simply scored tool too!  I whipped these up in no time!

Here's how you make it!

Island indigo Card stock: 6 x 10.25, scored at 4-1/2  and 5-5/8

Melon Mambo card stock:  4 x 11, scored at  2-1/4, 3-1/4,  7-3/4 and 8-3/4.  Turn and score the long side of the melon mambo at 1".  Then Punch the other long edge with the scallop trim border Punch.

Snip the short score lines as shown below.


Fold the melon mambo to form a box as shown below. The seam will be in the back.   




attach it to the Island indigo as shown with the paper seam in the back.  


now attach the side of the cover to the side of the box. (optional)  



this box holds 4-6 lightly embellished cards and envelopes

and another version that uses this Months club card!
