Box Card Tutorial - Pinque Peacock

Box Card Tutorial

Hi Everyone! 
Today I am going to share a
tutorial for a box card I made for the blog hop last week

This month Pinque Peacock is all about 
Stars and Stripes so I wanted to show you this one again.
For my tutorial I am making a box card for a baby shower.
I am still going to use some wonderful Pinque Peacock goodies.
(some of my favorites )

Step One

You cut your cardstock 6 x 11 1/2
Score lengthwise  at 3 1/4
Turn paper around and score at  2 3/4, 5 1/2, 8 1/4, and 11
So your paper will have a top side that is 2 3/4 and a bottom side that is 3 1/4
On the 2 3/4 side you will cut down to the score line. 
The 1/2 piece you will cut right off.

I then picked all my patterned paper and cut it.
I usually cut all my patterned paper 1/8 inch smaller 
than piece I want to put it on.. 
I did ink all the edges of every piece.

I decided to make a gift card holder for this box card.

I cut a piece of cardstock 2 5/8 x 8.
I folded in half then in half again on both side.
I punched a little circle on the top.

I then started to add patterned paper.
I wanted the yellow pins to be upright so I made
sure the box was sitting the way it would when done.

Here is the next step. I added two layers on the
bottoms layers of the card.

I usually put the box together then.. I put strong tape on the 
outside of the 1/2 piece and adhered  it inside the box.

Here is my gift card holder.. I made sure I used
strong tape to add to the back top part of the card.

Here it is.. I actually added a little piece of 
patterned paper to cover the card.
The paper slides in and out like the gift card.
This will hold up the back of the card.

Here I added two pieces in the middle of the card to add
anything... I am not sure yet what I am going to add
but likely some cute baby clothes I found.

These pieces are 3 1/2 inches wide.
I scored at 3/8 inch on both sides.
You can fold the side back or forth.

When I add these pieces I fold the card sideways
to make sure it will fold properly to send.

Here is my card with a lot of the goodies
I am going to use with it.
Do you see the wonderful Angel Pin....
.....made specially by Jessica!
I am going to add texture to the butterfly and add..
This is from my Crafty Kit Club kit.
The flowers are Petaloo and from the Pinque Peacock store.
The pink and orange pearls with the acrylic sliders are also
from my kit (Crafty Kit Club)

I will have a picture of the finished card
when it has been given . 
I don't want to spoil a surprise.
