Want a splashy way to package a set of handmade cards and envelopes?  Everything fits neatly inside this box that accommodates A2 sized cards (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″) and coordinating envelopes.   You’re also getting a sneak peek at Four Seasons Hostess Rewards Set (a look for every season) and International Bazaar Designer Series Paper (box top).  Both will be available June 1 when the new Stampin’ Up! 2012-2013 Catalog begins.

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • For the box base (Whisper White), cut card stock to 8 3/4″ x 7 1/2″.  Score using the Stampin’ Up! Simply Scored Scoring Tool at 1 1/2″ on all four sides.
  • For the top (International Bazaar Designer Series Paper), cut card stock to 7 7/8″ x 6 5/8″.  Score using the Stampin’ Up! Simply Scored Scoring Tool at 1″ on all four sides.

  • Use a Bone Folder to fold and set the score lines.
  • Snip as shown below to create tabs.  The idea to snip out the “triangle” is from a tutorial by Maria Bell.  I like that you can tuck in and conceal this type of tab easily.IMG_2009-001
  • Fold tabs in and adhere using Sticky Strip.
