Easter Box Card

For Card Base:

You need one (1) sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock* to end up with two (2) pieces to make your card box. *Note: heavy cardstock (90-110 lbs) works best.

  1.  Take 8 1/2" x 11" sheet, cut two pieces: 6 1/2" x 10 1/2" and 2" x 11"
  2.  Take the 2" x 11" and cut 2" off the length to end up with 2" x 9". Save for later use to   make tabs for scene building.
  3.  Place 6 1/2" x 10 1/2" paper piece on Scor-Pal. Score at 3 1/2", 5", 8 1/2", 10"

  1.  Rotate paper clockwise (to the right) and score at 3 1/2" 

  1.  Take scored 6 1/2" x 10 1/2" sheet and using the cutter, cut all the 4 vertical top 3"       score lines to the horizontal 3 1/2" score line. With scissors, cut bottom right bottom   tab at 45-degree angle which will result in the removal of part of the 1/2 tab section (top 3" and bottom 45-degree angle piece).

  1.  Using the bottom edge of the card base as a leveling guide, fold card over in half   from right to left to bottom vertical score line and crease with bone folder. Fold card   again each time to crease remaining bottom three (3) scored lines using the card   base bottom as a guide. NOTE: Using card base bottom will ensure box card will be   squared/straight.  
  2. Flip the card over and fold over at the same time the top 3" tabs from the left to right side. Ensure they are evenly folded down then crease with bone folder. NOTE: DO NOT FOLD DOWN the far right top 3" tab. The box is now ready to have layered panels placed on tabs.

  1. The 2" x 9" paper piece is used to make eight (8) strips to help with scene building.
To make the strips:
   a. Score at: 1/2", 4", 4 1/2", 5", 8 1/2"
   b. Take 2" x 9" strip and cut in four (4) 1/2" x 9" strips
   c. Cut in half each strip at 4 1/2" score line. You will now have 8 strips.
   d. With bone folder, crease both scored lines on each strip.
