Over at Just Us Girls, the challenge this week is a set of cards with a box.
I decorated my box with the butterflies from Hero Arts [with die cuts], and its a 3.25 x 3.25 box. It's so cute IRL!
To make a box:
Measure item to be boxed (this case 3.25 x3.25 so the envies fit in the box too)
Add 2" (5.25 x 5.25)
Cut card stock [I try and use a heavier cs so my box is sturdy- GKD Kraft]
Score 1" around all sides - fold and cut 1 score line (for each corner) to fold up box - adhere together
For the lid add 1/16th" to the box measurement [so it fits over the bottom.] (5.5/16 x 5.5/16)
Follow same directions used for the bottom of box.
My friend and fellow awesome stamper, Karen Knegten gave me the BEST TIP for boxes: rather than decorating the actual top of the box, cut a shape a little smaller then your lid out of cardstock and decorate THAT and adhere it to the top of your box! [It was a DUH moment for me when she gave me that hint! LOL]
I hope you pop on over to Just Us Girls and play along!! Could be one less hostess/ gift out off your list! Meanwhile, check out my fellow JUGheads and their sets of cards with a box:
