Valentine's Gift Box (or 3x3 Card Box)

Having all boys in the house, including the dog, doesn't really give me ample opportunities to create with pink and be all girly all the time.

So I made this just for the fun of it, as I always have a need to be creating something!  lol

I made this over a month ago, and I just spent too much time looking but I can't find the instructions that I followed to create this box... not in my scrapping room or online.  But while searching, I came across this one called a Fun Folds Envelope Punch Board Card Box by Kelly Gettelfinger which is very similar, but Kelly's instructions will hold 4"x4" cards and envelopes, so it's larger than the one I made.

Here's my basic instructions, using an envelope punch board:

  • Begin with a piece of cardstock cut to 6 1/2" x 6 1/2"
  • Use the enevelope punch board and punch and score at 4 3/4" and 3 3/4" on all 4 sides
  • Cut the tabs (you can watch Kelly's video to see where to cut if you are unsure)

I made a simple 9 1/4" belly band to keep the box lid closed.

The finished size of my box is approximately 3 3/8" x 3 3/8" x 3/4".
It will fit 3x3 cards and envelopes.
I checked to make sure.  ;)

Happy creating!  :)

Paper:  Cotton Candy, Ruby, White Daisy CS

So very pretty, and I love pretty boxes that hint of something inside that is equally awesome! HUGS,
