Watercolor Wings Card Gift Box, Handmade Papercraft with Stampin Up Products



If you watched my 'how to' video on Watercolor Wings earlier this week you'll know that I promised a tutorial on how to make a gift box for the cards we made in that video.

Well here it is, scroll down for the video!

What do you think? Simple by elegant is probably how I would describe it. I've kept the theme of the butterfly wrapping around the box going, just like it did with the card.



The box easily fits 4, A6 size cards and their envelopes, I'm pretty sure it should also fit A2 US sized cards, let me know if you try it and it does.



Here is the video, it includes a sneak peak at the new stamp set, Made for You, which I used for the sentiment.



Dimensions are:

Card Stock 11 1/2 inches by 8 inches.

Score the long side at 3/4 inch, 5 3/8 inch, 6 1/8 inch, 10 3/4 inch.

Score the long side at 7 1/4 inch and then 3/4 inch after stamping.

  1. Caroline I just wanted to say that your colour combinations for the butterflies are beautiful! So inventive. I also absolutely love your simple flip box - I make many gift boxes with my handmade cards for my kids teachers gifts and this would be a great twist on my simple box. I live in Canada so I'll try the A2 US size and let you know how it goes.
    Thanks so much for the inspirations!
    Rachelle.

  2. You have so many beautiful notecards in their own box . So many cute ideas for projects, do you plan on selling these or do you have your own store? I am sure others would like to know too.
