Card Box Tutorial

Back in early September I did the ESAD New Catty Blog Hop. This box we also made for my Launch. So here is how I made the box

Box - 1 piece of Real Red Cardstock - 27cm x 21cm. Scored on Short sides 2cm from both edges and Long side at 12cm and 15cm. Add Sticky Strip adhesive as shown on Photo - on the right side, put it on the edge not in the centre. Note: The left side only just covers up the sticky strip. Repeat for the other side

Lid - 1 Piece of Real Red Cardstock 18cmx15cm, Scored at 6cm and 9cm. Add Jumbo Eyelets and Real Red Grosgrain ribbon to make handle. On the inside of the lid stick down the ribbon.

Also for the lid you will need a piece of Real Red Cardstock 17cmx2cm. Add half a Dimensional on the each end and two in the centre. Stick it on the inside part of the lid over the eyelets and ribbon.

Now add Sticky Strip to lid, DO NOT GO TO CLOSE THE THE EDGES OF THE LID, as the lid is slightly bigger that than the box. Also DONT GO TO CLOSE THE THE FOLD LINE. Now stick base to lid, just this side of the fold line works best

Decorate the box. The additonal lines on the box are done using a bone folder, which is opitonal.
