These make wonderful little gifts, you can add photos, gift cards or just decorate as I did.

This stands up so can be displayed perfectly.

To make this card you will need…

1 pieces of 11 x 3.1/2 card.

Score along the 11′ side at 3.1/2, 7 & 10.1/2

1 piece  of 10.1/2 x 3.1/2 card.

2 pieces of 7.3/4 x 7.3/4 card for box.

On the other piece you need to pull the card out slightly and score at 1 & 2 then push the card back into corner of scored board and score at 5.3/4 & 6.3/4, rotate and repeat again.

6 pieces of 3.1/4 3.1/4 coloured card to decorate

My pretty Butterfly die is from Xcut by Docrafts, its an older die but I’ve found someone selling them for 1 Pound!!

Check out my full tutorial below to see how I made it.

This is a really versatile gift as you can make it as big as you want and the concertina part you can extend further also.

Give it a go, its a fun one.

Happy Crafting

  1. love the little princes one…a little girl would cherish that.
    You mention Do crafts a lot in your tutorials. Is it an online store? If so, do you order a lot from them?
