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!
Bottom of the box
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.
Normally I’m using my scoring or embossing tool to make nice and invisible lines. this time I wanted to show you where the edges are.
This is your box after adding some sides. To be more specific this is 2 cm height box. Now all you need is scarring and glueing.
This is the bottom of the box after scoring 🙂 Now you need a bit of glue or double sided sellotape …
and ta dah! The bottom of the box is ready! Now you have to make a top for the box 🙂 Don’t forget to add extra 0,3 mm to the bottom of the top! Otherwise you will have to bottoms instead of bottom and a top!
Top of the box:
Cut it, score it and..
and use the punch to make nice cut for fingers It will help to open the box.
