Box for cards

2-3 weeks ago I made a set of 6 Thank you cards and listed them on Etsy. I wanted to make a box to go with the cards and put the cards in, but I was not sure about the measurements =). That thoughts passed away as weeks went by and yesterday I made a basket (cased from Angie Juda’s website). I love making baskets and bags and boxes, which made me think why don’t I try this more… go through websites, find tutorials and make some of it. Splitcoaststampers resource room is the best place to start with. So I decided to make the 3″x3″ Notecard Box 


So I started and remembered that cards I make measure 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″. So it was not going to fit in this 3″x3″ box. So I had to do some mathematical calculations and figure out how I would make my cards fit in.

Many numbers later… I got it and made the box just to realize that I have recently changed my card size from 4-1/2″x6″ to 4-1/4″x5-1/2″ but my envelopes are still the ones that fit the previous sizes. Some more calculations later… I finally had the box. Yipeeeeeeeeeee….

Time to make the actual box that will hold the Thank You cards. So the only changes I made to the Splitcoaststampers 3″x3″ Notecards Box was the measurements of the Cardsotck.

For the Base: 1 Cardstock measuring 9″x 10-3/4″. Score at 2″ all sides.
For the Top: 1 Cardstock measuring 7-1/8″x 8-7/8″ score at 1″ on all side.
For Designer paper-to cover the top: I used CS measuring 6-5/8″x 8-1/2″ and score at 3/4″
For Designer paper to cover the bottom: I used 2 strips of 1-7/8″x12″ and glued it around the box.

Just follow the directions on splitcoaststampers and finish the box…It is a versatile box that can be used to keep cards, for gifts, candies etc.

Here is my final product:

So the days I am home, I intend to keep this on and try new stuff 😉

Until next time,

Happy Krafting

Cheers =)
