GIFT CARD BOX

This makes a nice gift box to put a gift card inside.
 
 
 
 
You will need
 
2 card stock and patterned paper of your choice.
Glue.
Scissors.
cutting Board.
Scorpal.
42cm long ribbon
Label dies ( cut Your own if you don't have dies )
Decoration of your Choice.
 
 
 
First cut your card stock 12 x 14 cm
Using your scorpal score at 2cm for each side then clip out a small piece as shown in the photograph shown below
 
 
 
 
Fold the edges of your score lines and glue together as shown in the photograph below.
 
 
 
 
In the same card stock cut out  one piece of 12 x 7, 75 cm
Score at 2cm on just one side as shown in the photograph below.
 
 
Now put this last piece into your box and glue the fold into the edge of the Box. This will make a flap as shown in the photograph below. Don't worry that your lid doesn't cover the edges of the box this will be sorted in the next stage
 
 
Now cut out a piece of card stock measuring 8,5 x 10,5 and glue this to the flap of the box so you end up with a larger lid so when closed it will cover the box as shown in the photograph below.

 
 
 
Now cut a piece of patterned paper  measuring 8 x 10 cm and glue this to the top of your lid as shown in the photograph below
 
 
 
 from the patterned paper cut 2 strips  measuring 1,5 x 7,5 cm
and 2 strips measuring 1,5 x 9,5 cm.
Glue these strips to the sides of your box.. 
 
 
 
 
Out of your card stock cut a piece measuring 25 x 9cm.
Now score the card at 11 cm from the left hand side and 11 cm from the right hand side. This will give you a little panel in the centre. Now cut your ribbon in half and glue each piece to the side of your card stock as shown in the photograph below.
 
 
 


In the patterned paper cut out 4 pieces measuring 8,5 x 10,5 cm and
2 pieces measuring 8,5 x 2,5 cm. Now glue this to your card as shown in the photograph below.
 
 
 
 
                                                                                   
    
                                Now you can glue your box to your card as shown in the photograph below.

 
Now your box is ready to decorate.
This box is much more fun to give as a present than just putting a gift card in an envelope.
 

 
 
TIPS
 
If you want to layer your panels with other card stock I suggest you cut your paper 0,5cm Shorter on all sides so that you leave a small edge around all the sides..
