Baby Card Gift Box

Wow, halfway through the week already. Where does the time go?

When someone has a baby, we always buy a little something to welcome the little one.

Well I thought that it would be nice to create a card and gift box in one.

Obviously I have done this one in pink, using Blushing Bride.

The gift box needs card stock measuring 10 1/4″ x 5 1/4″. Along the long edge, score at 4, 4 3/4, 8 3/4 & 9 1/2. Rotate and score at 3/4, 1 1/2 & 9 1/2. Score and burnish these lines.

I have added a photo here to show which parts to remove and which to keep as tabs. Note the lid flaps of the box are on the bottom. I attached my layering panel at this point as its easier when the box is flat. Now you need to add adhesive. I have marked the pieces on the photo to help. Note that the flap on the left will need adhesive applying on the opposite side of where I’ve marked.

Once your box is made up use the 1/2″ circle punch to cut out the thumb notch for opening the box.

To make the easel card you need matching card stock measuring 5 1/2″ x 3 3/4″. Score at 2 3/4 then flip the card over and score at 4 1/4. Fold and burnish the score lines. Lay this piece to one side for now.

For your card front your base layer needs to measure 3 3/4 x 2 3/4. Layer with Whisper White. I used Something for Baby stamps and framelit. The sentiment was from Suite Sayings. These were stamped in Blushing Bride and Mint Macaron.

Adhere the easel part to the box. Make sure you have the easel facing the correct way. I added a layer of Birthday Bouquet to the base of the easel to break up the card. I added snail to the top part of the easel and whilst it is folded up I placed my card on top, lining up the top edges.

All that’s left now is to add a small embellishment to the front for the easel to rest against. I used Teeny Tiny Sentiments, the Word Window punch and dimensional.

Just add a small gift and the card box is ready. You could make a larger box to put the box card in or maybe a gift bag.

I do hope you can follow my instructions easily enough.

See you tomorrow for my 3D Thursday project.
