MY FIRST CARD IN A BOX...
...and it may be my last! This took a few hours to make and decorate; but I'm happy with how it turned out. I got the instructions and dimensions on YouTube*, but I had to search awhile before I found one that used an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet and had measurements in inches instead of centimeters.
Can you believe that with all the flowers and butterflies on all sides and from the middle of the box it will all fold flat and fit into a standard sized envelope--WOW!
This is going to someone VERY special.
*To access the video on YouTube, type in "card in a box" in the search box and scroll down to the one by "stampingt."The C6 envelope (Australia) is the same as our A2 size.
NOTE: This card turned out to be 4 1/2 x 6", so I had to use my Envelope Punch Board to make an envie for it. So either make your envelope to fit or just trim an extra 1/2" off the top panels.
