Tutortial: Box for 3x3 Cards with Lid
Today I'm going to show you how to make the box below. This box is the one I referred to last Thursday in the Thrifty Thursday Size Matters post about 3 x 3 cards. I found this tutorial over at Splitcoast Stampers (LOVE THAT PLACE!) for a 3x3 Notecard Box. I scalloped the edge of my lid cardstock as well as the pattern paper, but then decided I liked the look of the ribbon instead, so you can't see the second scalloped layer :0)
Here is the box with some of the cards that fit inside with their envelopes.
7 1/2 x 7 1/2" cardstock color A--bottom of box
5 5/8 x 5 5/8" cardstock color B--lid for box
5 1/8 x 5 1/8" pattern A paper for accent on lid
1 3/4 x 12" and 1 3/4 x 3 1/2" pattern B for accent around base of box
Sticky Strip or strong adhesive
To assemble the bottom on the box, cut the left most score line to the first score line on opposite sides of the paper.
