Free Fast and Easy Box in a Card Tutorial

Hello lovelies,

want to know how I made this Box in a Card? The design has been around for a long time but I haven't made one forever! So, I thought it was time to have a bit of fun with this fail proof design and share it with you.


I have used the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper 12"x 12" (DSP) for the card in the front and the back one I used Gingerbread & Peppermint 6"x 6" (DSP). Both are from the Mini Catalogue that will retire the end of December.


TUTORIAL

Card Base - a normal standard card size you make normally (for your country) (Australian size card base is an A4 piece of cardstock cut in half at 8-1/4" or 8.4" x 5-7/8" or 5.14" (21 cm) and then scored in the middle at 4-1/8" or 4.2"(10.5 cm).


NOTE:

(American cardstock is 8-1/2″ x 11″ (21.6 cm x 27.94 cm), different to Australian A4 which is 8-1/4″ x 11-5/8″ (21cm x 29.7 cm).

  1. Cut and score a cardbase in the colour of your choice.

  2. BASE OF BOX- Cut a 6"x 6"(15.2 cm x 15.2 cm) square of Designer Series Paper and score at 2" & 4"(5 cm & 10.1 cm) on two sides so you have 9 squares.

  3. Fold & burnish the score lines with a Bone Folder, then cut along the lines shown in the diagram 1. below.

  4. BOX LID - Cut a 3-1/8" x 3-1/8" (7.9 cm x 7.9 cm) piece of Cardstock (that matches the cardbase colour). Score at 1/2" (1.2 cm) on all sides. Fold & burnish the score lines with a Bone Folder then cut along lines shown in diagram 2. below.

  5. Assemble both box base & lid and adhere with liquid glue.

  6. Cut out a square from the card base - make two cuts from the top of the card 1" (2.5 cm) in from the right hand side down 1-1/2" (3.8 cm) deep. Repeat for the second cut allowing a 2"(5 cm) space. See video for more details. Diagram 3.

  7. Decorate your card - Cut 2 Basic White Cardstock strips of 2"x 5-7/8"(5 cm x 14.9 cm) - whole length of your card front.

  8. Cut a strip of DSP 1-1/2" x 5-7/8"(3.8 cm x 14.9 cm).

  9. Adhere the DSP to one strip of Basic White and adhere to the card front, add the second piece of Basic White and glue inside the card for your message.

  10. Die cut a Christmas bauble from the Gingerbread Dies (I used Real Red & Basic White), assemble the two pieces.

  11. Stamp a sentiment on some spare Basic White with Real Red Ink and adhere both the sentiment & Bauble to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.

  12. Tie a piece of Crinkled Seam Binding around the box once you have filled it with goodies and slide into place on the card.
