I've been asked quite a few times how I make my boxes for my cards, well I'm sure there's lots of tutorials out there but this is how I make mine, quite simple really.
These are 6" square
First I choose a good quality card, this is my favourite it was recommended to me by my lovely friend Sue (playingwithpaper) on Docrafts, I buy the card here
1) First I cut out two squares...
One at 7&7/8 Square (Base)
and the other 8" Square (Lid)
I then score the base at 7 1/8 all the way round
and score the lid at 7 2/8 all round
Next I cut into all the corners like this
and fold at all the scored lines
Glue in the corners like below
and there you have it, one base & one lid!
and for posting I use these brown Pizza style boxes below
I hope this is useful to some of you (for ease of finding it again, I will add it to my tutorial page above)
The Pizza Style boxes are from Cartons Direct online
Have a lovely weekend
