Card in a Box Video

Hello Friends
  Okay this is a fun card/box. I learn this one from Tonya Bell from Australia so I did switch the measurement to fit in our A-2 envelop. In the video on my blog at www.frenchiestamps.com you will see another box with flower well I will showcase that one tomorrow so today it's the balloon one. Love the way the balloon look like they are floating free due to the window sheet #114323. Now before I tell you more about this I will give you a little secret :) If you choose to make some I would say don't put to many layer if you plan on mailing it like this one I think it will be perfect with just the forever stamp. I learn that if your card inside the envelop A-2 fit in the opening of your paper cutter (where the blade slide) *the one that Stampin'Up! sell you don't need extra postage so far this been working out for me. It's depend on weight too but for the thickness it work great.
The Designer paper for this box I use the Watercolor Wonder #132994. Card Stock Crisp Cantaloup and White. Stamp set Sketched Birthday page 13. The balloon are with the Owl Punch #118074 and the small Oval #120908 *I show how to make them in the video.
 Scroll for the measurement.


 


 Here the measurement for the box
9 by 5½
Score at 2-1/8, 4-1/4, 6-3/8 and 8-1/2
Turn and score at 2-3/4
Where you see the zig zag that  where you need to cut.
For the layers the back is 5-1/4 by 1-7/8
all other flap or bottom of box 2-1/2 by 1-78

The divider *center inside 3-1/8 by 3-1/8 score at 1/2 and 2-5/8 then in half.
Well now with these measurement and video I bet you can make some fun card in a box.
Enjoy and have a great Friday!

  7. Hi France! In the video you say to turn the cardstock and score at 2-3/4" but on the blog you say to turn and score at 2-3/8" - Can you advise which one is the correct measurement?

    Your directions were so good, mine came out perfect on the first try. Thanks too for the little hint about lining up the interior pieces (worked like a charm)
