Here is just a quick tutorial on how I made this card box.
It all starts with an Acetate Card Box (#144628) that is altered. Make the box by first cutting off the flaps on one side of the box and fold the other side together—making an open box. Then make an insert with Pool Party Cardstock (#122924) that becomes the closure to the box. The insert cardstock piece is cut to 4 1/2” x 8 1/2” and scored at 5 3/4” x 6 3/8”. Round the top two corners with the Detailed Trio Punch (#146320), add some Tear & Tape Adhesive (#138995) and adhere it to the back of the inside of the box.
Then VOILA! Fun card box with a decorative closure! Then all you have to do is make the cards! I love how the box now opens with this flap! Just adds such a fun element!
The cards all have Thick Whisper White Cardstock (#140272) as the card base. Then the card front layer is Shimmery White Cardstock (#101910) that is embossed with the Swirls & Curls Embossing Folder (#147923). The focal point of the card uses the Above the Clouds Stamp Set (#149404), the coordinating Hot Air Balloon Punch (#149520), the Stitched Nested Labels Dies (#149638), & the Well Said Stamp Set (#148796). I LOVE the fun bling of the Iridescent Sequin Assortment (#144212) and the detail the Linen Thread (#104199) adds to the cards.
I kept the layout to the cards the same, as you can see, and just changed the balloon and greeting.
I hope you love this project! If this bundle wasn't your favorite before, I hope it is now! 😀 Now go get crafty today!
