This month's kit has a lot of great sentiments, that can be used over and over! Here are the cards as designed:
Here is my card with my little cactus! Everything, except the Thick Whisper White card base is from the kit:
And here is my box. I used the green striped card at the far right of the picture of the original cards at the top of the blog to make the box. The little flowers were the outlines from the pink flowers with different backings, the gold pieces were leftover pieces from the Gold Swirl, some I had to cut down. All pieces were from the kit.
See how the bottom of the box is solid, but the top and sides are stripes? I love when the card front is different than the back. It definitely makes for a fun box.
And the inside:
Here is the template for making the card base into a box. It is such a simple box. First, do not fold the card on the original score mark. It will be there, but not real visible, as long as you don't fold it. Score on the 8 1/2" side at 1", 3 3/4", 4 3/4" and 7 1/2". Score on the 5 1/2" side at 1" and 4 1/2". Cut the red lines, as shown in the photo below, and fold up and then glue to form the box. I would recommend using Tear & Tape, or Tombow Liquid Glue, affectionately known as Green Glue, due to the green packaging.
I think all the card bases in this kit will make fun, colorful boxes, and will probably give the others a try at a later time.
Will you give it a try? Post your pictures, if you do!!
Happy New Year to you and yours!
