This is my first attempt at tutorial so mercy, please! Besides, my 22-month old was "helping me and thus I had to rush everything resulting is desperate photos. Hope it's of some help though!
Sheet of cardstock cut to 11x11 inches
If you want a front panel, then cut it approx to 6 1/4 x 6 1/4 inches
Martha Stewart Scoring Board
1/2 inch wide ribbon (about 22 inches)
Measuring tape (for ribbon. totally optional, I just measure "by hand", lol)
Start by positioning the envelope attachment (stored on the back of the scoring board) onto the board and placing cardstock as shown. Make sure the corner of the card is touching the side of the board and that it sits snugly against the bottom edge of the triangle.
Then score at 4 inches and 4.5 inches. Repeat with remaining 3 corners.
Then snip out the area marked in orange, repeat on all 4 sides:
I attach the double-sided tape onto the full length of the ribbon. You can do the same thing with ATG gun as well but NOT on tiled kitchen floor while trying to fend off 2 intensely curious toddlers, lol. The ribbon needs to be 3 times the length of the side of your box plus about 4 inches extra. I just measure by hand.
Peel the backing off the tape and tuck about two inches into the envelope:
So, here's the box:
A NOTE: If your card isn't terribly bulky but still thick enough not to fit comfortably into a regular envelope then cut your cardstock to 10.5 x 10.5 inches and score at 4 and 4 1/4 inches. That gives you an envelobox 1/4 inches deep.
Hope it was helpful!
Thanks for reading!
