Card Box with Brad Closure Tutorial

I have had several requests for a tutorial for this card box. Thanks to Sandy, a friend from the From C to Shining C messageboard for reminding me I promised to post this!

This box ended up being one of those "happy accidents." I was adapting the measurements from a smaller box to fit my needs, but my paper wasn't long enough for the box to completely close upon itself. I decided to try adding a brad and some ribbon to make a latch. This box easily fits six A2 envelopes and six 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 cards.

Begin with a piece of cardstock cut at 8 inches x 11 inches.
With the paper turned vertically, score the paper at the 1 inch and 7 inch marks. Turn the paper horizontally and score it at the 1 inch, 5 1/2 inch and 6 1/2 inch marks.

Cut along the score lines as shown, and add adhesive to the flaps.

Assemble the box as shown.

To keep the box closed, I added a brad and ribbon before embellishing the box. You can see the finished box here. If you want a box that closes completely, begin with an 8x12 piece of cardstock. In addition to the instructions for this box, you will also score the paper horizontally at the 11 inch mark.

I think these make great gifts!

My May Special

Because of the popularity of the free ink pad with orders over $50, I am going to continue this through the month of May. Simply let me know which color of Classic ink pads you would like me to include with your order! Even better, you can combine this with Stampin' UP!s great May Scrapbooking Special to get a free pack of Designer Series Paper or Textured card stock when you buy 3! Choose your ink pad to coordinate with your paper!

Scallop Envelope Die notecard

Yay! I am finally done with finals for this semester! It was pretty brutal, but I think I finished pretty well. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

I have been creating, but I haven't been posting. I misplaced my USB adapter to download pictures from my cartridge, and I wasn't in the mood to get on the slooow computer to download straight from the camera. Yeah, I can be lazy!

I made this little notecard holder card to fit in an A2 envelope.
