A few of the demos on Stampin' Connection have requested tutorials for two of my card boxes. I love giving cards as a gift in these cute boxes!
I had already published a tutorial for one of the boxes here on my blog, but it has been awhile. The original post showing this box with all the card that went inside is HERE. The tutorial for making this box is HERE. This box holds 6 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch boxes and 6 A2 envelopes.
The second box was a gift set I made last year for Mother's Day. The original post showing all the cards that went inside is HERE. This box comfortably held 5 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch cards with envelopes and 2 small notecards with envelopes.
I started with 2 pieces of 12 x 12 textured card stock in Barely Banana. This is one of the colors that will be retiring June 30, so if you like the color, you'll want to stock up now. :) I cut the base piece down to 10 x 8 1/2 inches.
Next, I scored each side at 1 inch and 2 inches. If you want a particular side of your cardstock to be the outside (textured cardstock or patterned), you will want to make sure the side that will show is facing you as your score. Here is what the paper looks like after scoring:
