Hand made cards, hand made gift box

Hand made cards, hand made gift box

I love making cards but quite often I seem to end up making more cards than I have occassions to send cards for. 

I do find however that a set of handmade cards make a perfect little gift, especially when packaged in a matching handmade box too and this box has always gone down well.

I've designed this box to take UK A6 cards ( A4 cut in half and then folded) plus corresponding envelopes but I believe it also fits US A2 cards perfectly too.

I hope you enjoy this video - it does drag a little at the end due to my forgetfulness - sorry about that.

Dimensions are;

First bit of card stock
8 1/4 inches by 9 1/2 inches
21cm by 24cm

Score at 7 1/4 inches or 18.5cm

Cut in half at 4 3/4 inches or 12cm

Second bit of card stock
11 inches by 8 1/4 inches
28cm by 21cm

Score on long side
4 3/4 inches, 5 1/4 inches, 10 inches and 10 1/2 inches
12cm, 13.3cm, 25.4cm and 26.7cm

Score on short side
1/2 inch and 7 3/4 inches
1.7cm and 19.7cm

Cut in half at 4 1/8 inch or 10.5cm
