Box Card by KATRINA THOMPSON




Hello and Welcome everyone.

Thank you for taking the time to look today. I am using the new release C'est la Vie Collection and have made a box card to showcase all the beautiful papers, diecuts and ephemera. You can adapt this card to any sizing so there are a lot of photos with ideas of how to mix and match the pieces to complete your own projects.





I have chosen this beautiful sheet as the borders look great for the outer look of the box.
Fold into thirds, score and cut out the 4 corners.


The corners will become the decorations for the inside.


Ink around all the edges of your framing in a coordinating ink to blend.
Cut each of the rose prints from the corners, as pictured above, ink the edges and mount onto squares of Cherry Cola cardstock. Place the pieces to gauge the spacing.


I have added a border of lace around the edges of the squares to give some texture and dimension.


Once you have all of your pieces layered attach to the box base.


Select all of the pieces you wish to incorporate from the Decoupage sheets and the Ephemera. Trim and ink the edges to suit.


Use the pieces above to layer onto your squares, creating scenes.
Shape you leaves and use 3D foam tape to give dimension to your pieces.





To create your lid I have taken a section from the 12x12 print that measures 6 inches.


Your square sections in this project are 4 inches. The lid needs to be a few mills wider so it will fit over the box when folded. This applies to any box card size you complete.
Score a square into the centre of your piece just a fraction larger than 4 inches.
Fold the edges over. For the corners pinch a valley, (inverted) fold as pictured. When pinched together your corners will then come together. Secure the flap on the inside.


Ink around the edges to blend and decorate.
