On my husband’s side of the family we have nine nieces and nephews, and all their birthdays happen between August 30 and December 4. When I saw the Mojo Monday sketch, I knew it was the perfect sketch for another birthday card.
I always like to add a matching envelope. It makes getting mail so much more fun.
Here’s the Christmas Box I posted yesterday. I got the box directions several years ago from Becky Roberts at Inking Idaho. The box is made with one 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of card stock. Cut two pieces- piece A is 10 1/2 x 5 1/4 and piece B is 10 x 3 1/8.
Score piece A in the landscape view at 1/2, 1, 9 1/2 and 10. Score piece A in the portrait view at 1/2, 1, 4 1/4, 4 3/4. See picture to cut the corners and make flaps. Attach 10 small pieces of sticky strip as shown in the picture. Use a bone folder to crease all the score lines.
Score piece B in the landscape view at 3 1/4, 3 3/4, 4 1/4, 5 3/4, 6 1/4, 6 3/4. Crease on score lines to create “mountains” separating the candy bars from the cards and envelopes.
The lid is made with one Transparancy sheet cut at 8 1/2 x 8 3/8. Score at 1/2, 3 13/16, 4 6/16, 7 11/16. Secure the lid with sticky strip.
Decorate your box with four cute 3 x 3 cards and envelopes, candy and ribbon! If you make a Christmas Box, please post a picture here. Thanks!
