Materials you will need:
::scissors (forgot to get them in the photo..oops)
Start by cutting the card apart...top from bottom:
and draw diagonal lines on both halves. On what will become the "top" of the box, draw a little square where the lines cross.
Fold each side of the card to the center; with the "top" piece, fold just as far as the outer line of the little square. Open all 4 sides up again.
Using your scissors, cut along the fold lines on the shorter ends...just to where your pencil line and fold intersect. (You will have 4 cuts on each piece.)
Overlap the two 'flaps' at each end and tape. Bring the remaining part of the short end (now the side of the box) over the connected pieces to make a neat edge. Tape in place.
Repeat with the other part of the card....
Here's the mystery. Is there a greeting card formula for where the picture is placed? Because almost without fail...the design is nicely centered on the front...
and the bottom.
I made these...
Multi-tasking at its finest!
