Anyway, I've made this size box before, and it really holds a good size gift. I've also made it to hold up to 20 cards and envelopes! It's a tight squeeze, but they fit.
I'll take some pictures of one in progress later this week, but the basics to make this box are:
- Cut (2) pieces of cardstock (I used designer papers for my TOP here), to 10 3/4" x 12".
- Trim 1/16" off of (2) sides of the BOTTOM piece...make sure it's two sides that are touching each other, like the West side, and the North side.
- Score all sides on both pieces in at 2 1/2".
- Cut flaps and assemble.
Stamps: It's Your Day
Cardstock: Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Timeless Portraits designer series papers
Other: Black 5/8" Satin ribbon, 1", 1 /4", and 1 3/8" circle punches
