Zoe Box Card Tutorial

Zoe makes a terrific pallet for this card tutorial with added pictures. This is a tutorial on how to make a box card with finished flat card that is able to post with added second stamp postage.
The exact sizes are on a previous post, but I will place dimensions under the pictures for easy reference.  Have fun making this sweet card box.

Base of card:  10.5" x 7"
Score:1/2", 2.5" sections
score at 3.5"horizontal except at base

plan lining color and cut 4 pieces: 2.25"x 5 or 6"

Score and attach 3 linings, leaving back piece flat.
First lining attach after box side is adhered.
Inner pieces are 3,5" x 2" scored with 1/2" folds on end.

Any flexible plastic sheet can be used for holding accents.
I use laminating plastic because it is easy to cut.
I make a few 1/2" x 6"pieces and them pick accents and
pictures to add to card box.

I used xyron adhesive to attach velum accents to c/s.
I also put extra stickease and mats on back of the accent pieces.

Remember when you plan accents and photos, you want to make
sure it doesn't exceed width or height of a 5x7 envelope.
