Here is the Z fold to streamline your work!

These cards are so much fun and so addicting.  You can fill them with anything!!!  I've done one for a wedding, I've done one with a bouquet of GIFT CARDs for a bridal shower. The possibilities are ENDLESS!

As promised on my video, here are the measurements!  the 2-4-6-8 box has been around since the Caveman days, it's so easy and it's one of the first things I ever did 15 years ago (we just had a bottom to it which meant there was one more score line).  It lent itself to this project!

MEASUREMENTS:

Box: 

Cut piece of cardstock at 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" (it's a half sheet of cardstock)

     Score this piece with the 5 1/2" side on top at 2 3/4"

Turn and with the 8 1/2" piece on top you are going to score to the MIDDLE LINE (at the 2 3/4" mark) and cut the rest of the way down

     Score at 2" then Cut

     Score at 4" then Cut

     Score at 6" then Cut

     Score at 8" then Cut

That's IT!!!  then put it together.

Insert:

Cut a piece at 2 3/4" x 8"

     Score at 1/2",   2 1/2",   3",   5"   5 1/2"   7 1/2"

     Fold into a Z with a flare (the ends of the Z are going to be going the opposite way) and POP it into your box.

Layered Pieces:

Back pieces – Cardstock 1 7/8" x 5 3/8"  and the DSP is 1 3/4" x 5 1/4"

Small Panels – Cardstock 1 7/8" x 2 5/8"  and the DSP is 1 3/4" x 2 1/2"
