Birthday Card Series: Day 8 Happy Birthday Box Card

Hi Everyone!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and following my Birthday Card series.  This is the last project in this series and I hope that you like it.  I used the Confetti Wishes Paper Packet and Complements.  Both items will be retiring on August 31st, don't miss out and order yours before the end of the month.

Box cards are really easy and fun to make, the trick is figuring out the card size and scoring/cutting each side so that it can still fit in the envelope and retain it's shape.  This card is a standard A2 card measuring 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" when closed.  Below you will find the standard cut and score measurements for the box card base and layers.

Card Base - 5 1/2" X 9"

In a landscape position score and cut at 2 1/8", 4 1/2", 6 3/8" & 8 1/2"
In a portrait position score at 2 3/4" leaving the last flap un-scored.

Layers (Inside and Out)

2 1/2" X 1 7/8" (Cut 9)
1 7/8" X 5 1/4" (Cut 2)

Inside Strips (to hold embellishments)

1" X 3 1/8" - Score at 1/2" on each end

In a few days I will post video tutorial on my blog and youtube channel so don't forget to subscribe.  I want to again thank everyone for visiting my blog and for all the birthday wishes!
