A2 Sized Card Gift Box: Style 1

    Hello, hello. Samantha here with the first of my two A2 sized gift box tutorials. No special dies or fancy machines needed!

    If you are like me, you have an overabundance of cards. What better way to gift them to friends and loved ones than with a handmade, keepsake box? This box will hold a dozen cards and envelopes provided that none are super bulky.

    Let’s begin. To create this gift box, you will need:

    Score your lid at 1″ on all four sides.

    You should have something that looks like this.

    You’re going to make a cut on the small squares created by your scoring to the side of the score line and up to the intersecting score line.

    Then you will miter your small squares like so. Repeat on the remaining three sides.

    You should have something that looks like this.

    Fold and firmly burnish your score lines. You will want sharp creases for this project. Apply Score-Tape to the flaps.

    Using your Plus Blue Adhesive adhere your patterned paper to the box. The size of your patterned paper is dependent on how much of a border you want. Remove the backing from the Score-Tape and assemble the lid.

    The steps for the bottom of the box are the same except that you will trim about 1/8″ from the 9″ side and 1/8″ from the 7.75″ side and score on all four sides at 1.5″.

    That’s it. If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to leave them in the comments.

    Thanks so much for stopping by and don’t forget to save this blog post to Pinterest. This is one design that you will definitely want to make over and over again.
