Tutorial Thursday -Mini Box Card

Hi it's Jennifer here with a Mini Box Card tutorial.
these great cards will fit all your Mini Marci size

So first I cut a template 11 and a quarter by 4 and a quarter
 inches. Score a long the centre at 1 3/4 Inches. Then on the
 long side score at 3 1/2, 5 1/2, 9 and 11. Cut down the score
 lines on the top only to the 1 3/4 inch line. Cut out the 
1/4 inch section on the top.

Here is my main card cut out.

Cut 3 insets 4 x 1 inches and score each end  1/8 of an inch.

These are my layers for the bottom of the box.
Cut 1 of 3 3/8 x 2 3/8
Cut 2 of  2 3/8 x 1 7/8

Cut 1 of 3 2/8 x 2 2/8
Cut 2 of 2 2/8 x 1 6/8

These are the layers for the top of the box.
Cut 2 of 3 3/8 x 1 5/8
1 7/8 x 1 5/8

Cut 2 1 6/8 x 1 4/8
Cut 2 3 2/8 x 1 4/8

Here they are layered.

Now to pop the inserts in you tape them to the small end
 equal distance apart this will be the inside of your card.

Then join your box then arange your inserts as in the picture
 make sure they are flush with the top of the box.

Then decorate. I have used 
Stamp Set

Also for the back of the Card I Cut 3 1/2 x 4 1/4 in white
and taped it on. That is where I write and can stamp a
sentiment.  Dont forget it does fold down flat
and fits in a regular size envelope.

This is another one I did with the same box design.
