To show you how I scored the cardstock I’m going to transfer over to this cream cardstock and score the lines in black with my pen—just so you can see it better. You don’t need to use ink markers on your project. Let’s begin: Whether you’re starting off with a piece of 8 1/2” x 11” card stock or a 12” x 12” piece—cut it down to, 6 7/8” x 11”. Next lay the cardstock length wise and score at: 1 1/4”, 1 3/4", 6 1/8”, and 6 5/8” as shown in the above image. Shift the cardstock height wise and score at: 1/2", and 6 3/8” as shown in the image below.Once all of the score marks have been made, take your scissors and cut off the left and right sides of the lid, then cut the gusset tabs without removing them like so:
Next, round the corners of the lid (optional).*Switching back to pattern paper mode, hehe.
Now you can assemble your stationary box using any adhesive that fits your needs. I’m using my ATG; and, I start by bringing the gusset tabs, to the tabs of the backside of the box. Then I adhered the tabs on the front of the box to the back tabs, like so:
I made these really cute ‘Thank you’ cards for this particular box and I love them so much. They're one-layer cards (my favorite types) and I made these using my trusty Lawn Fawn stamps. I wanted to give these away as a gift—like I mentioned in the beginning of this post, and I’d like to give my readers a chance to win them! Yay! If you’d like me to mail these to you feel free to leave me a comment. I’ll pick a winner using the Random Number Generator on Monday AND I’ll send you two sets! You’ll receive this set shown in the images and I’ll make you another super cute one as well. Doesn't that sound fun? This giveaway is only for my readers within the U.S. (sorry guys). I would love to ship these out of the country but let’s face it. International shipping is so expensive right now, with USPS doubling international shipping rates ‘n all. Ok well, I hope you've enjoyed this DIY and have a great weekend! Don't forget to comment to win!
