Last year about this time I had been searching blogs and tutorials for better ways to store my cards for gifts and just for me. I found a few that I liked…but they took too much time and too much paper. I wanted to use this in a class I was teaching so I had to make it fast and easy. After a bit of math (my mom always told me those math classes would come in handy some day) I came up with this fun and cute card holder.
· 12" x 12" cardstock or decorative paper
· Scor-pal or scoring tool.
· Very tacky tape (red line, scor-tape) or glue
· Embellishments (a great way to use up your scraps)
1. Score your cardstock at 3" & 6" as shown
2. Turn your paper a quarter turn and score again at 3" & 9" as shown
3. Fold all of your score lines. Always fold away from your score mark. When you score, the fibers of your paper are broken up to fold that way.
5. Trim diagonally as shown. This is the top of your box.
6. Add your adhesive to the outside of the middle flaps and the inside of the bottom flaps as shown.
7. Fold the top diagonally cut flap over the outside of the middle flap on each side of your box.
8. Fold the bottom flap over the top and middle flap on both sides to form the bottom of your box.
