Create this box with matching lid to hold sets of cards or other goodies.

  • One 7 3/4" x 9" piece of cardstock for your box base
  • One 6 7/8" x 8 1/8" piece of cardstock for your lid
  • Scor-Pal™ or other scoring tool
  • Scor-Tape™ or other strong adhesvie
  • Scissors

  • Additional cardstock and embellishments to decorate your box

Step-by-Step

  1. Step 1

    Score your 7 3/4" x 9" piece of cardstock at 1 1/2" on each side.
  2. Step 2

    On the long sides of the cardstock, cut the score lines up to the point where they connect with the score lines from the short side.
  3. Step 3

    Prefold all your score lines.
  4. Step 4

    Apply Scor-Tape™ to each of the four outside corners. These are your glue tabs.
  5. Step 5

    Peel off the paper lining of the Scor-Tape™ and fold in the glue tabs to create the bottom of your box.
  6. Step 6

    Stamp your 6 7/8" x 8 1/8" piece of cardstock if needed.
  7. Step 7

    Scor the cardstock at 1".
  8. Repeat scoring the cardstock piece at 1" on each side.
  9. Step 8

    As in step 2, cut the scor lines of the long side to the point where they connect with the score lines of the short side.
  10. Step 9

    Punch each side with your Scallop Edge Punch. No need to punch the glue tabs.
  11. Step 10

    Cut down your glue tabs so they won't show under the scallops. Add Score-Tape™ to each of the four corners.
  12. Step 11

    Prefold your score lines. Peel off your paper liner of the tape and fold the glue tabs in to finish the lid of the box.
  13. Step 12 (Optional)

    Add more color and depth by sponging the edges of your lid.
  14. Step 13

    Fill your box with either matching cards or other goodies.
