This is a fun gift box to make and it’s the perfect size for three 3″ x 3″ Note Cards & Envelopes, or any small gift including chocolates!
I designed this box for our January Stamp Share for Leader Meeting Make & Take. My inspiration was from Crafty Caroline’s You Tube Video (click here to view Caroline’s video)
With a couple modifications I made a box using the Tulip Builder Punch and the Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper (details below).
This box is fun to make and has so many possibilities!
Real Red Box with Heart Sliding Closure for 3″x 3″ Note Cards:
1 – Score 5-1/4″ x 7-1/2″ Real Red Card Stock along 5-1/4″ side at 1″ & 4-¼”, plus make 1/4″ mark/ score line at 2-5/8″. Score 7-1/2″ side at 3-1/4″ & 4-1/4″
2 – Cut along 3-1/4″ & 4-1/4″ score lines from edge to intersection (both sides). Remove a sliver of cardstock on smallest panel (4 places).
3 – Cut half circle using 2″ Circle Punch at 2-5/8″ score line.
4 – Fold all score lines in (valley folds) and crease with Bone Folder. Apply Tear & Tape Adhesive on tabs as shown in diagram.
5 – Fold sides to create box adhering small bottom panel/tab between side panels. Set box aside.
6 – Score 3-¼” x 10-¾” Real Red Cardstock at 3-¼”, 4-3/8″, 6-½”, 7-¾” & 8-7/8”. Make opening with Classic Label Punch between 8-¾” score line & 10-¾” end by placing cardstock fold on edge of Punch & resting cardstock in Punch.
