Folding Box Card

This week I made half a dozen folding box cards. These cards are terrific because they fold flat into a normal envelope, and are quite easy to make once you have the hang of the measurements. I have made a youtube video showing how to make, and all the measurements you need. You will find it on Youtube at Helens Card Designs. The papers I have used are from Uniquely Creative and the collection is called Tranquility. This paper was perfect as it has lots of images the right size for the boxes, and the mix of flowers, butterflies and birds allows a good choice to put in your box. I have had a busy couple of weeks.. I taught my retirement village ladies, just got that class in before we all went on restrictions again due to covid. Luckily so far we have avoided an outbreak in our state, but I certainly feel for the other states who are confined to home again. That is when our hobby becomes a sanity saver! the weather has certainly turned to winter, and the heater is running here a lot, but I do not complain about the cold weather and the nice drop of rain we have had. Til next time, stay safe…

_MG_4594 (Medium)Finally today we make a start on this years Christmas makes, and first up is a folding box of reindeers! The papers for this first series is Kaisercraft Christmas Jewel, and a lot of this collection is already foiled. I bought the 6″ pad, collectables , sticker sheet and a couple of sheets of the 12 x 12 paper. The collectable pack had some reindeer and I had a punch from Stampin Up which I used to punch out a few more in silver foil and glitter cardstock.The little reindeers on the front flap were from the Kaisercraft chipboard pieces box and I foiled them with my Go Press and foil machine. i will be back tomorrow with more Christmas! til tomorrow….
