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 8" Square (for the Base) and score it at 7" all around
and the other 8 & 1/8" Square (for the Lid)
and score it at 7&1/8" all around
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
