Hello all, it's Danita from http://danitasdesigns.blogspot.com/. My project this month is a birthday card and matching gift box that I was asked to make, as a surprise, for a dear friend. Now this being a surprise and me not having a picture of my friend, I had to become a sleuth!! I stalked her facebook page until I found single picture of her that I liked and I copped it!!! lol I blotted out the background with an ink pad, embellished and then made a matching gift box to put it in.
Here is the finished card.
Here's the insidehttp://danitasdesigns.blogspot.com/2013/03/acetate-dome-birthday-card.html
For the box I used my old trusty tool, the enveloper. It comes with instructions on how to make a box top and bottom, but you don't have to use this to make a box. I'll show you how.
Then you want to cut an angle on all four corners of the paper.
Fold and crease each side, turning the angle pieces inside.
Glue all the edges together with a glue you trust to hold. I use Scotch Quick Dry Glue. Paper clip the edges together and let dry.
There you have it! the completed box bottom. Easy!!
Repeat the same steps for the top.
See this 5x7 card fits perfectly in this size box!
Thanks for looking!!!
