I had a request from Stacey, a Stamp Club member, wanting to learn to make a box card. So, this is one of our projects from December Stamp Club. I’ve seen several box cards on Pinterest, but I wanted ours to fit in a medium envelope, so I did change the dimensions a bit from the ones I saw.
Here’s the fixin’s!
So that you can see the measurements, I’ll be using white CS for my tutorial, but the Snowman sample is made with Night of Navy.
Our box base is a half sheet of CS (5 1/2″ by 8 1/2″). With the CS horizontal, score at 2″, 4″, 6″, and 8″.
Turn the CS to a vertical position and score at 2″.
Cut on the four score lines (2″,4″, 6″, 8″) on the “short” side (2″), up to the score line. Cut the 1/2″ x 2″ piece off, and cut a small angle off of the 1/2″ x 3″ piece, so it will adhere nicely.
Fold on the vertical score lines, and three of the horizontal lines (to make the box flaps). DO NOT fold the “flap” closest to the 1/2″ piece. This will be the back of the card and will stand up straight.
Place a strong adhesive (glue or tear & tape) on the 1/2″ flap and adhere to the other end of the CS to form the box.
Cut two strips of CS 1″ x 3″. Score each piece 1/2″ from the end.
Fold the ends, and adhere into the center of the box, one in front and one in back. This will be the base to attach your decorations.
Decorate your box card as desired. We used the Flurry of Wishes Bundle and the Snow Place Bundle. Ink colors: Memento Tuxedo Black, Marina Mist, Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy.

Until next time…….stay inky, my friends!
