Happy Christmas eve 🎅🎅🎅 Tomorrow is the the big day and I'm so fortunate to be able to spend it with my family. As I have an almost 4 year old grandson it's especially fun, if not hectic to say the least!! But hey this Nanny loves it all 😁. In the new Honeybee Home stamp set there is the perfect sentiment for how I feel about them all... "So glad we're family" . So I had to use it today.
As it's the final day of my week of inspiration for the blog it must be fun fold Friday. My fold for today is one that the the lovely Monica Gale shared a few years ago called a box card. It looks great but is surprisingly easy to create and it folds flat and fits in a standard c6 envelope!!!
I started with a piece of cardstock measuring 10.5cm x 29.7cm. I then scored it at 4cm, 14cm, 18cm and 18cm. I then scored it at 5.5cm along the short side. In the picture below I have marked the score lines...
Apply adhesive to the tab on the right and close to creat the box. Then all you need are 2 pieces of cardstock measuring 2cm x 12cm scored at 1cm and 11cm. These 2 pieces are then added into the inside of the box to create the layers onto which your decoration will go.
To decorate my box I stamped and die cut the flowers from the Honeybee Home stamps. I also die cut the leaf die from the Honeybee Bloom dies which are the ones that coordinate with the stamps.
I used pattern paper to cover the outside of my box. The paper is called Heart and Home. I used the grey and white wood effect side . I think this gives my card a wooden planter feel .
