Make a Card Box with Winter Wishes

Card box CASED from CathyInspired by my downline member, Cathy Schroeckenthaler to make this card box.

Stamp Set – Winter Wishes
Cardstock – Real Red, Mossy Meadow, Smoky Slate, White, Merry Moments DSP
Ink – Real Red, Mossy Meadow, Smokey Slate
Accessories – Lucky Stars Embossing Folder, Big Shot, Simply Scored, Simply Scored Diagonal Plate, Paper Snips (especially for cutting out the skates by hand), Real Red & Garden Green 1/8″ Striped Ribbon, Tear & Tape Adhesive. Snail Adhesive, Glue Dots, Stampin’ Dimensionals

Finished dimensions are 6-3/8″  4-7/8″ X 1-3/8″ .  Start with an 11″ X 11″ piece of cardstock and the Diagonal Plate on the Simply Scored Board.  Score at 3-1/2″ and 5-1/2″.  Turn 90 degrees and score at 4-1/2″ and 6-1/2″.  Turn 90 degrees and score at 3-1/2″ and 5-1/2″.  Turn 90 degrees one last time and score at 4-1/2″ and 6-1/2″.

Cut out the triangles in the corners and fold into a box.  Use Tear & Tape Adhesive to secure sides like you would for an envelope.  For this one, I just tucked the flap into the back but you can tie with a ribbon or make a belly band.

**Stamping Tip:  It’s easier to decorate the front panel if you do it before you form the box by adhering the side flaps with the Tear & Tape Adhesive.

A picture is worth a 1000 words……(make that 7 pictures)

Card Box 1

Cardstock is scored and I highlighted the corners that need to be removed.

Card Box 2

Close up of triangle to be cut away.

Card Box 3

All 4 triangles cut out.

Card Box 5

Add Tear & Tape to edges as shown.

This is the time to decorate that front panel.  It really is so much easier to decorate when the cardstock is able to lay flat.

Card Box 6

Flip cardstock over and fold on score lines.

Card Box 7

Secure flaps one at a time using the Tear & Tape, making sure the corners are squared up.

Card Box 8

Now all that’s left is to tuck in the the back flap after you fill it with cards.

It’s not too early to start thinking about Christmas gifts.  This box could be filled with All Occasion Cards and any teacher, neighbor, co-worker, caregiver, Pastor, friend, etc. would love to receive it.  Add some stamps and a decorated pen for an extra flair!  Of course you can change up the Designer Series Paper and it could easily become a birthday gift for someone dear to you.

Check out the Holiday Catalog (see my right side bar, then click on the photo of the catalog) and make out your wish list.  Shop on-line here.  Free gift for everyone who places an on-line order.

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Stamping!
