Enchanted Garden Book Box Card

Hi! It's Sandie here today and (sadly) I am sharing my last design team post for Cardz 'n' Scrapz. I have loved being on this team and have enjoyed every moment of working with the rest of the team. Alas, all good things must come to an end :) 

 I made a Book Box Card featuring the Enchanted Garden 6x6 paper pad

Enchanted Garden 6x6 paper pack
Embellishments of choice. 

6" x 10.5" piece of White cardstock for the base
5 7/8" piece of medium turquoise cardstock x 4
5.75" piece of white cardstock x 2
5 5/8" piece of patterned paper x 4

For the  book 'pages'
7.5" x 5.5" pieces of cardstock x 2
7.5" x 4.75" pieces of cardstock x 2

Adhesives - Wet glue and/or Double Sided Tape

1. Place the 6" x 101/2" piece of cardstock horizontally (landscape orientation) on the scoreboard. Score at 5" and again at 51/2"

2. Fold along the score lines to form an 8" x 5" card with a 1/2" spine. 

Concertina fold (mountain, valley, mountain, valley, etc.) the two 7.5" x 5.5" pieces of cardstock and the two 7.5" x 4.75" pieces of cardstock at 3/4" intervals. (Note that the 7.5" x 4.75" pieces are scored and folded across the short length). 

To assemble the book frame take one of the long pieces and one of the short pieces, weave the folds together and use glue on the top and bottom to hold it in place. Once you have all 4 pieces secured set it aside.You will get a much better fit if your folds are precise and even.


On the front and back of the Book Box Card I layered up the medium turquoise card, the white card and then the patterned paper. On both sides of the inside I left out the white card panel between the turquoise and patterned paper. 

Note: Add  your ribbon to the front and back of the base before adhering the front and back panels. 
Decorate the box as desired. I used Prima flowers, rhinestones, pearls, Papermania bows and other paper flowers. 

And that is it from me :) 
Thank you so much for dropping by
