Christmas Card with a Gift Box

Dear Crafters,

I have a different type of card today that can also be used as a gift. It has a card on the top and a little pull out box underneath to place a gift!

I have used the Candy Cane Lane DSP and the Cookie Cutter Bundle. I just love these products!

Here is the front of the project:

Here is how it looks when opening the card:

Oh and here is another one I made with the gorgeous Rudolf on the front!

I just love how all of these products coordinate!!!

Here’s how to make it:

Start with an A4 piece of card and cut it down to 3″ x 11 6/8″ then score it at 3″, 4″, 7″, 8″, 11″

Burnish the folds and add Tear & Tape as shown below

Fold up the right hand side (see below), remove the cover off the tape and then fold down the left side to secure firmly.

Next cut a piece of card to 4 7/8″ x 4 7/8″. Score each edge at 1″. Using scissors, cut in and notch as shown below. Also use a 1″ circle punch to create the semi circle before you put the box together with tape. This will then slide beneath the card!
