Hello All!

I know I promised this tutorial a loooong time ago and finally it’s HERE! Hope it will be nice and easy one 🙂Making Card Boxes Tutorial

This tutorial is for small A6 card box ( it should work with any size you will need. Simply use bigger cardstock).

To make this box you will need:

1. Double sided sellotape / fast drying glue e.g. bookbinding glue,

2. sharp scissors,

3. embossing tool / scoring tool,

4. ruler ( metal one if you have mine is without scale ( I had to use two rulers 😉 ),

5. A4 cardstock for A6 sized box or smaller ones!

I’m trying to keep things simpler than they are, so to make bottom of the box for exact card I’m using exact card to take measurements.

    Great tutorial! It can be so expensive to buy a proper box for shipping 3D cards in.
