Holiday Card and Gift Box


I hope you will enjoy my tutorial on how to make the gift box for your card. Once I figured out the sizes. It is so easy to make, and it give such a nice presentation to your card. So for all my friends and the professional people I always give a Christmas card to I’m going to make a box to give them their Christmas card in.

I used heavy card stock for the box
Cut 1 piece 6 inches x 11 inches
Score on each side 1/4 inch (Vertical)
Turn cardstock (Horizontal)
Score 5 3/4 inch and 5 5/8 inch
That will give you 1/4 inch at the bottom of the box
Cut 1 piece 6 1/2 inches x 3 1/2 inches
Score 1/4 inch on each side (Vertical)
Turn your cardstock (Horizontal)
Score 1 5/8 inch x 1 7/8 inch
That will give you the 1/4 inch for the top of the box
Card size  is 5 x 5

Directions Once everything is cut, scored and folded you need to glue or tape (USING A VERY STRONG ADHESIVE) Make sure you only glue the SIDES of the bottom and the SIDES of the top so you can add your card inside the bottom. You can decorate your box any way you want too as it can be used for any kind of Holiday. When you are putting
the box and the top together where it gives you the 1/4 inch you need to cut into the scored 1/4 inch line so the edges fold in.

Copic Markers I used are:Skin E11, E00, E50. Blouse and Shoes E42, E41. Handel on the Umbrella E31, E30. Hair E19, E18, E08, E02. Pants and Umbrella BV00, BV000, BV0000.  On the Umbrella I also used a little G00, Y00 and to give the darker lines or the distressed look I used W3. I sponged around Tilda  with Brilliance ink Lavender. I used some Diamond Glaze and added a touch of Deco Art Glamour Dust to give some sparkle to look like rain drops. Corner rounder from Making Memories. Stampin’ up Word Window punch for the sentiment. Three Silver dots I made from The Pearl Pen.

The paper I have in the background is called Parchment Paper. This is what is called a Parchment Craft. I had followed a pattern, you put your parchment paper over the pattern and I traced the flowers with white ink by keeping the pen in an up the upright position to keep the lines as fine as possible. Then you turn over the paper and place it on the soft side of a embossing pad. Very carefully go over the flowers petals and embossing all the flowers. I did add some Stickles Star Dust to give my flowers some sparkle. When you do the entire card it is just stunning.

Thanks for stopping by. I always love comments. Let me know what you think, I love hearing from you.
