Have you ever “gifted” a set of cards to someone? While there are plenty of people out there who could make their own cards, there’s just as many who don’t. Those friends and family would appreciate a gift of cards that they can give out – especially if YOU made them!
I have a project today that allows you to package up those cards very nicely to give away. Or, maybe you don’t want to give them away? Well, then you can also use this for storing your own cards on a desk as well. And obviously I’ve chosen a beloved theme that everyone loves – a Wizard of Oz theme!
Take a look at this tutorial video for how this comes together:
This card box assembles very easily, and you don’t have to have any special die cuts to create it. It is helpful to have a scoring board to make nice folding lines, but it’s also not a necessity.
I have used the Stardream Metallic Vista Blue paper for my chosen project, because of my card set theme. Your possibilities of color choices are endless, however, depending on what you choose to use as a theme.
To make the gingham pattern similar to Dorothy‘s dress, I’ve used the Basis White 80lb. paper and a background die. In addition, I am absolutely in love with the sparkle in the Silk Red Glitter paper. I decided to make this look like the Tinman’s heart.
The card dividers inside the box are an assortment of the following papers: Pop Tone Orange Fizz, Stardream Metallic Fairway Green, Pearlized Strawberry Cream, Curious Metallic White Silver, and Neutral Kraft paper.
I also added a label in the same Basis White paper, after printing the names I needed. I could also see you adding a panel to write on, attached to the front of the dividers to write down special dates to remember over the year.
What do you think of this project? I would love to hear about it if you decide to give it a try. Feel free to leave me a comment below! It was good spending time with you again, CutCardStock fans. Bye for now!
