We all have them....cards friends and family have sent to us in previous years...or leftover cards from the ones we sent out last year. ( If you're like me there may even be many years of leftover cards in a tote!) Here's a great way to re-use those cards! Little boxes to tuck little gifts into!
My wonderful Dad came home from work one night and shared this with our family. Some one at the office had showed him how to make these. My Dad is now in a care facility with Alzheimer Disease. This post is dedicated to him and is in memory of all the wonderful Christmases we had as a family.
I hope this tutorial will be easy to follow and not leave your scratching your head going "huh??"
Here it goes!
|Any size card will do...just don't use those ones with shaped edges.|
|Here are the tools you'll need to make them. A pen, ruler, scissors and clear tape.|
|The first step is to cut the card in half at the fold. The front will be the top of the box, while the back is the bottom.|
|Next step is to cut from the top and bottom edges to the point where the lines cross. Only from the top and bottom!|
|This is how your top and bottom should look once you have cut from the edges to the intersecting points. Now you can fold along all of the lines. Make the fold nice and sharp!|
