TUTORIAL FOR OFF THE RAILS SCRAPBOOKING DESIGN TEAM - HOW TO MAKE A BOX FOR YOUR CARDS

Morning everyone, welcome to my blog and my latest tutorial for
Today I have a tutorial on how to make a box for your 6 x 6 inch cards, using A4 card stock. You will need 2 pieces of A4 card plus papers to decorate with.


You can use this method for any size box.
To find the measurements you will need to -
Measure card. Add a quarter inch extra for an embellished card. i.e my card is 6 x 6 inches square -
 I need my card to measure 6 + 1/4 inch plus side panels of 1 inch.

So that makes 8 1/4 inch.You can make them any depth you like. Cut your A4 card to 8 and 1/4 inches square. This makes the lid.
 To make the base just cut off an 1/8 inch extra on two sides, 
your square will measure 8 and 1/8 inch square.
INSTRUCTIONS
You will need A4 card x 2 pieces 

Score board, scoring tool, scissors, paper trimmer, glue

Card blank to make the card, pearls to decorate, flower dies and pretty papers.

Cut one A4 sheet to 8 1/4 inch square
Cut one A4 sheet to 8 1/8 square
Score 1 inch on all sides of both pieces, fold and crease all sides
Cut out tabs on opposite sides of the squares for the lid
you will have 4 tabs cut. Nip out a tiny wedge on each section of the tab

Before you glue the box  together, make sure you take a circle punch and cut a half circle on opposite sides of the lid only
Next add glue to the front of the tabs like this
Glue all four tabs down and hold the corners together with clips until dry
You should have two sections like this
You are now ready to decorate
Add an inner piece of card to the base then cover the lid
I also covered the sides of the lid with pretty paper
Decorate the lid with lots of paper flowers


Make a card to match


That's all for today. I hope you followed along.
