I loved the box idea so much that I created an envelope box for some 3x3 cards and their envelopes. You can follow the tutorial below to create both the M&M holder from yesterday as well as the 3x3 card holder - just make the size of the solid cardstock 4-1/4" x 9-3/4" and score as noted below.
I know that you just want me to get on with the tutorial so here it goes....
- 4-1/4" x 7-1/2" piece of solid cardstock
- Taffeta Ribbon
- Designer Label Punch
- Sticky Strip
Step 1: Score the solid cardstock at 1/2" on each long side. Score parallel to the short end at 2-1/2", 3", 5-1/2" and 6". Mark the short end at 1" up on both side (solid lines) and at the half point of the bottom (2-1/8") - note grid paper.
Variations: To create an envelope box that can hold 3x3 envelopes and their respective mini square envelopes, start with a piece of solid cardstock that is 4-1/4" x 9-3/4". Score the solid cardstock at 1/2" on each long side. Score parallel to the short end at 3-1/4", 4", 7-1/4" and 8". Mark the short score end at 1" up on both sides (solid lines) and at the half point of the bottom (2-1/8"). Continue with the same directions, starting at Step 2.
