TUTORIAL: Box to hold Cards!!!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Here is a Tutorial I made of the box!

Finished Box!!!!



TOOLS NEEDED:

(2) 12x12 Card stock for the base of the box and lid
(1) patterned paper -scraps are fine- for the lid corners of the box
bone folder (or butterknife-use non-cutting side-gently) or a popsicle stick
Trimmer or scissors
Adhesive
Pencil
Eraser
Something round, plate, circle, your Head

Step 1: Take your paper and score one side at 3 inches and 9 inches.
Rotate your paper once and score it at 3.5 in and

This will be the finished product:


Fold all sides

Step 2: Cut (where my black dots are)-up to where the score lines meet.
You will notice that where the black LINE is there is a piece missing, (I noticed when I folded my corners up their was some excess (so I cut it off).



Put some adhesive on it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Step 3:
Fold the sides up to make your box.

Step 4: Take another piece of paper and score it the same way, (except one condition, you will want to make it slightly bigger)-not a lot though.

Step 5: Take a bowl, plate, whatever works for you and make half circles like I did (I copied the shorter half circle four times), because I wanted all my half circles to be the same length I measured 1.5 inches from the outside of the center of the box all around.



Step 6: Cut it out and fold!


Step 7: Take a patterned paper and trace each of the four half circles and cut it out!-These are the corners of the lid (mine is the pink patterned paper)

Step 8: Tape it up!!!

Step 9: Take the half circle and fold them in half so it's 1/4 of a circle and secure to your LID!!!





I realize some pictures are missing, but I am not a tutorial expert, any questions just ask.

wow, great job! I just keep mine in empty envelope boxes, but I pretty much do all one size for my stash.

Of the top of my head, I put my A2 card in it and there was a little room on all sides, and it's quite tall. I will measure it today for you though, for exact measurements.
