Box Card Tutorial By DT Nikkita Jain

Hello crafty peeps,

Nikkita Here, I am back again with another tutorial and it's a shadow box card.
So here is the project with step by step instructions and pictures.

  • First, take a cardstock of 300 gsm and cut into respective sizes (11"x 6.5" and 6.5" x 8"). 
  • Score the 11" x 6.5" piece at 5" and 6"
  • Score the 6.5" x 8" piece at 1/2" and 1.25". Flip and score the same way on all four sides and sniff off the corners as shown in the picture

  • Create the shadow box using tacky tape or any strong adhesive and keep it aside.

  • To make the base strong add layers of cardstock on both sides measuring 6.25* 4.75 on both sides
  • Add ribbon as shown for the box closure

  • Stick to the shadow box.
  • Decorate the box as per your choice , I have made the box as a baby shower gift for a mom to be and used papericious mom to be collection, I have fussy cut the elements and made embellishments, to give a 3D look to the embellishments I have added double sided foam tape at back of the elements. Complete the box as shown in the picture and the pretty gift box is ready.

  • Note - always take the pattern paper little smaller than the base for example if the box cover is 5*6.5 inches then pattern paper should be 4.75 * 6.25.
