Hello, hello! Samantha here with my second style of A2 sized card gift box. This one features a classy and chic acetate lid. Perhaps the best part of all is that this box is entirely handmade; no dies and no fancy machines necessary.
Let’s get started! You will need the following:
- A sheet of acetate from the We R Memory Keepers Clearly Posh 12″ x 12″acetate pad cut to 8″ x 6.75″
- A sheet of Basis Black 80lb Cardstock cut to 9″ x 7.75″
- Score-Tape Premium Double-Sided Adhesive
- Patterned paper of your choice
- A length of ribbon
First we will make our base. To do this take your black cardstock and score it at 1.5″ on all four sides. Miter your flaps as shown below.
I prefer to adhere my patterned paper at this point and then assemble. Place Score-Tape on your flaps.
For the acetate you will do exactly the same thing as you did on the base however you will trim about 1/8″ off of the 8″ side and about 1/8″ off of the 6.75″ side. Score all four sides at 1″.
Apply adhesive to the flaps. I opted to use red line tape as it’s nearly invisible when used on acetate. Miter the flaps as shown.
Place the middle of a length of ribbon into the center of the box.
Fill with cards and put the lid on.
I was able to fit 15 cards and envelopes into this box.
Bring your ribbon up and tie into a bow. This makes getting the acetate out of the gift box a tad bit easier.
That’s it. Easy enough, right?
I hope that this will inspire you to create your own gift box. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to leave them in the comments.
