BOX OF CARDS





-BOX LID-
cut a piece of cardstock at 7-7/8" x 6/5/8"
score at 1" on all four sides
-BOX BOTTOM-
cut a piece of cardstock at 8-3/4" x 7-1/2"
score at 1-1/2" on all four sides
Cut slits on all four sides (bottom and lid), where the score lines meet
and use adhesive on the flaps to form box


Covering the box
-BOX LID-
cut a piece of the designer paper of your choice at 5-3/4" x 4-1/2"
cut two more pieces at 5-3/4" x 7/8"
and cut two more pieces at 4-1/2" x 7/8"
(these pieces are for the top and sides)
 -BOX BOTTOM-
cut one piece of the designer paper at 5-5/8" x 4-3/8"
cut two more pieces at 5-5/8" x 1-3/8"
and cut two more pieces at 4-3/8" x 1-3/8"
(these pieces are from the inside bottom and outside sides)
 Ink all edges of designer paper and box (optional)
Embellish box


I made six cards (4" x 5-1/4") with their respective envelopes
and they fit perfectly in the box as you can see below.
 


Thanks for stopping by!
