Card in a Box

Filed under: Projects — May 5, 2014 @ 10:09 am

I hesitate to show the Card in a Box that we did at our last class, because everyone has been posting them.  But in case you haven’t seen it yet – here ya go.

Today’s Tips:

-Use Window Sheets and Glue Dots to adhere the butterflies to the inserts.

-Use punched flowers, banners, cupcakes, whatever, instead of butterflies.

-You can find tutorials and videos for “card in a box” by doing a search, but below is a quick  tutorial of the instructions I used.


1.  Use a 9×5-1/2 piece of CS.  Score lengthwise in half (2-3/4) .  Turn, Score at 2-1/8, 4-1/4, 6-3/8, 8-1/2.

2.  Cut off part of flap as pictured and cut down half way as pictured.  Assemble box with sticky strip.

3.  Inserts are 3-1/8 by 1-1/2, scored 1/2″ from each edge.  Place at top edge of box.

4. Add 4 DSP panels at 2-1/2 x 1-7/8

5.  Add your punched butterflies with tiny strips of window sheet and glue dots.  Add a strip of fringed grass and rhinestones if desired.
