Box Envelope


I never seem to get time to show you the box envelopes that I make so this time I have decided to show you the box first and if you would like to see the card which I have made for it, then you will have to keep popping back to see if I have posted it.

I adore making these envelope boxes and because they have depth to them it means you can layer the card quite high.


Papers are K & Co, May Arts Ribbon, cream flowers and lace are from the lovely Laura, orange and yellow flowers from stash, lastly leaves are punched. Nearly forgot to mention I have put two little magnet discs under the paper, one top and bottom so that when you close it stays shut…. cool eh.

Sandie asked the question did I have a template…. I don’t… I actually saw this in a magazine and it was made for an ATC. Light bulb moment and decided to adapt. This is for a 6×6 card and I had to join two pieces of card to make sure the flaps overlap but apart from that not hard to make. Maybe do a tutorial if anyone is interested.
