Card in a Box

Here is a video short on how to make these cute cards!!  They fit into a regular A2 envelope.  Have fun!!
Shop local, Shop small!!

Cut your paper 8 1/2 x 5 1/2.  Score at the 2", 4", 6" and 8" mark on your score board.  Score the other way at 2 3/4".  Cut down to the score mark on one half of the card.  Take off the cut tab of 1/2".  Glue the remaining tab to the inside of your box, this will be the back of your card.  Cut two 1" x 3" tabs and score 1/2" on each end.  Fold and glue inside your box (one going toward the front the other toward the back.  Use acetate strips or matching card stock to attach your embellishments making sure the embellishments don't hang outside the folded box.  Using double sided card stock will reduce the bulk and it shouldn't cost you any more postage as long as you don't add too many gems, etc.
