Book Box Card

Hi Crafty Friends :)
Adele here from adelescricutcreations

This is my First Design Team Post for Pam and I am thrilled to be part of her talented Team :)

So, on to my project.....
I decided to make a Book in a Box Card, this is easy to create in the Silhouette Studio, so I have created a file that I will share with you at the end of this long picture heavy post !!

This is the screen shot of the Studio File I created

Once you have cut the pieces out of your chosen card stock you begin to assemble the box part of the book as follows:-

Glue the sections shown in the picture below after pre creasing all your fold lines

Press these pieces together to form your squared off sides like below

After all 4 sides are glued and shaped, you need to secure the corners with red line tape or similar

Then add liquid glue to the back of your plain 5.5" x 4.25" piece of card around the edges to adhere to the back of the made up box,

your inner box is now complete :)

Next you need lots of glue to apply the box to your card base on the right hand side

It should now look like this

With the 4 side pieces you add these at this stage, this gives extra strength to the box

I next put the frame and the plain 5.5" x 4.25" pieces through an embossing machine, attaching the frame first

Next you need to glue the spine to the box

Finally add the embossed card to the front cover and Voila!!! you have a Book Box Card :)

I hope you give this Book Box Card a try it is very useful for special gifts etc as it measures 5.5"x4.25" so can hold little gifts or treats, or even become a shaker card if you sandwich the acetate between the frame and the box :)

If you would like the Studio file you can grab it HERE

I hope you enjoyed my first post for Pam at The Bug Bytes

Thank you for stopping by today
Thank you Pam for allowing me to share my project with your viewers :)

Happy Crafting
