Technique Tuesday - Christmas Card Box

A few posts back I shared with you all the card holder I made. Well since I had 2 sets of cards I made a second one with slightly different colors. I also thought I would share how I made it.

Cut a piece of cardstock to 8 1/2" x 5 1/2". Stamp on the front side randomly covering the cardstock.

Score at 1/2" front each side (the long side). Turn your paper and score at 4" and 4 1/2 ".

Using scissors trim along the center 2 scorelines to where they meet on both sides.

Turn over to the stamped side. Tape or glue the center tab on both sides. I found that I like the Tombo Multi Purpose Adhesive the best, it won't come apart at all!

Fold the tab in and then add more adhesive along the long ends on both sides and fold in.

It should look like this.

Make the top following the same procedure except the card stock piece will be 5"x 5 1/2". Tuck your cards inside then cover with the top.

Here is my second version. Happy Stamping!
