Today, I will be sharing a project (and template) of one of my favorite gifts to give - handmade cards/envelopes in a custom made box!
I made three cards (and envelopes) and packaged them in a coordinating gift box. I embossed the small rose (from the Roses in Bloom set) using clear embossing powder to create the subtle tone on tone background. I added the "Mom" sentiment because this gift will be for my mom. :-)
Here's a close-up of some of the embellishment details I added to the front of the box.
Because I wanted the cards to be "all-occasion", I did not add any sentiments. Just like the box, I embossed the small rose (from the Roses in Bloom set) using clear embossing powder.
How would you like the template for this card box? Yes? I just happen to have one handy here... :-)
Here are the instructions:
- Trim cardstock to 11" wide by 7 1/2" long
- Score cardstock as shown above (black lines)
- Cut on red lines (as shown above). Discard grey shaded parts.
- Add adhesive (see above) and assemble box!
I created this to have a "flap" that closes on the top so no adhesive is needed for the top. :-)
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Make sure to check out what Mona has created for you tomorrow (the 11th Day of Christmas)! Hugs, Laurie
