Christmas Box Card

First of all I would to thank Rachel Woollard for showing our team how to make a box card.  She has done some wonderful ones and they are all gorgeous.  For mine I decided to once again use my favourite stamp set Lovely as a Tree and Simply Stars.  As usual it required a lot of fussy cutting but I find it very soothing so I really enjoy doing it, silly me lol.


First you take a piece of A4 cardstock and cut it down to 13cm then score lengthwise at 7cm so you end up with one side being 7cm and one side being 6cm.  Then turn the cardstock and score down to the score on the 7cm side and cut up to the score line on the 6cm side.at every 7cm interval until it looks like this:
Then with the piece that is left over at the end cut off the side where the cuts are and keep the scored side.  This will be where you place your adhesive to join the cardstock together to form the box make sure that you only fold down 3 flaps because you will need 1 flap for the back of the card like this:
Then cut 2 pieces 1 1/2 x 9cm and score at each end at 1cm each and fold the flaps in the opposite direction to each other like this:
Then attach these to the inside to divide the box into thirds, keeping in mind that it does not need to be precise this is where you will attach the pieces for the inside of your box like this:

If you want to put DSP on the outside of the box you will need to have 4 x 6 1/2cm x 5 1/2 cm and for the long back flap 6 1/2cm x 12 1/2cm to write on for the back side of the box.

Here are some other views of my completed box


I used Smokey Slate Textured Cardstock for the box and Winter Frost Specialty DSP for the sides of the box.  I stamped the images for Lovely as a Tree with Island Indigo Ink and then dabbed with our 2 way glue stick and then sprinkled SU Silver Glitter over the top.  I stamped the stars in Island Indigo and Silver Ink and cut out the little stars with the star from the Circle Thinlet Die using Silver Glimmer Paper.


Hope this makes sense.  Thanks for having a look.


Cheers Teena
