Hidy Ho Stampers and gooooooooood morning!
ha ha ha…aren’t you glad it’s Friday!
some days are just slower than other – right?!
it’s been a long productive week!
I’m so excited to show you my project for the day. I’ve been waiting to show you this until after I taught it at my classes. I’m sure you’ve seen one of these Cards-in-the-Box. I’ve gotten a lot of inspiration from a lot of very talented stampers out there. Hopefully this version will help you streamline this project. So thank you to WHOEVER started this Card-in-a-Box craze it’s so much fun – here is Deb Valder’s Version!

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!
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.
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.
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″
