Card Box using Diagonal Plate

Dear Crafters,

Back on the 18th January, I shared a card box/envelope and today I share another one that is slightly bigger but uses a full 12″ x 12″ sheet of card stock.

This envelope holds at least 6 A5 cards and 6 C6 envelopes. It is really just a thicker envelope that I made using the diagonal plate with the Simply Scored.

I started with an 12″ x 12″piece of card stock and scored on the diagonal plate at 4″ and 6″. Tip: Score from the ruler along the top and the sides so you don’t have to turn your card stock.

Turn the card stock 90 degrees and score both sides diagonally at 5″ and 7″.

Cut out the small triangles as shown below

Cut up the scorelines as shown below

Now add your Designer Series Paper (Wildflower Fields DSP) and your Tear and Tape adhesive as shown

Also add another piece of DSP to the back of the box

I have decorated the front using a flower I made with the Bow Builder Punch

I adhered the flower to the top flap of the envelope/box as the weight will hold it closed.
