Card box

This card box is our July camp project. It will nicely hold the 4 cards with envelopes that we also made. All of the cards and the box use retiring stamps, ink colors and paper from Stampin Up. Papers used are River Rock and Porcelain Prints designer paper. Inks used are versamark and Blue Bayou. Stamps used are Polka Dots and Paisley and the watercolor vine wheel with a versamark cartridge. Accessories used are jumbo eyelets, corner rounder, velcro dot to close the box and double stitched ribbon.

To make the box base cut your cardstock 8 1/2 x 1o 1/2. Score 1 1/4 inch on each long side. Turn your paper and score 4 1/2 inches from each end. To make the lid cut your cardstock 6 x 5 inches. On the 5 inch side score at 1" and 2 1/2 inches. Round the 2 front corners only. Cut your designer paper 3 3/4" x 5 3/4". Round the 2 front corners and attach to your cardstock. Set 2 jumbo eyelets on the top with your cropadile, insert ribbon ends and tie them on the inside. Attach your lid to the inside of your box with sticky strip.

Be sure that you decorate the outside of your box base before you glue the sides together - it is much easier that way. If you have any questions about making the box just let me know.
