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,
