Carols, cookies…but what about cards? Those last minute gifts are easy when you bundle a stack of hand-made greeting cards to give as a present. Today’s DIY Card Box (complete with downloadable PDF directions – my gift to you!) I recommend the Stampin’ Up! Foil Sheets for a sturdier paper base, and I’ve got tips for decorating with the Basic Borders and Seasonal Labels Dies, including a #RealityCrafting segment that will help walk you through my process when I design. Together we’ll create a set of coordinating tags and boxes that you’ll want to use all year long.
I love the way these boxes come together – definitely not just for Christmas, if you create with papers and colors to fit your occasion.
The flip top on this box is simple to create with the scoring directions (available in a downloadable PDF gift from me — see below).
Ready for the tutorial? I’ve got a free downloadable PDF tutorial for today’s project, complete with directions for making this box, including the cutting and scoring directions. This is my holiday treat to you — I hope you have fun creating your own card boxes!
