Card Box Tutorial

I didn't realize when I posted this that there would be that much interest in my box. I'm flattered, truly. The box itself is VERY simple and can be made quickly and with minimal supplies. I see myself making this again and again and I hope some of you will be able to make use of it as well.

Without further ado, here are the instructions:

* Cut an 8 1/2" x 7 1/2" piece of card stock
* Score at 1 1/2" on both sides of the long side
* Score at 3 1/2" and 5" on the short side

See my sheet of card stock here for measurements. I traced all the measurements onto an orange piece of card stock so you could easily see what I'm talking about. I hope it's easy anyway!

* Using a bone folder crease all the score lines
* Trim flaps (as shown)
* Add adhesive (sticky strip!)
* Decorate front of box
* Fill with cards! (It holds 6 cards plus envelopes but that number may vary depending on thickness)

I hope this was helpful to you!

Have a great day!!!
