Hi everyone, today I have project number 3 for this year’s Easter Series 2019.
I’ve decided to revisit my Concertina Box Card I made in 2017 after my crafty friend Valerie shared her version of the one I did over on my Mixed Up Crafters Facebook group. She did a wonderful version and so I felt inspired to do another one.
Whenever I re-visit a project I like to change it in some way, so this version is slightly larger to the one I did before.
The whole thing folds up and fits into this 4.1/2 x 4.1/2 box.
You can write your message on the back, as shown above, or behind the long concertina part.
I used the gorgeous Welcome Spring magazine by Helz Cuppleditch and you can find this to buy over on her Etsy shop here.
I fussy cut all of the cupcakes and mini eggs and die cut my Stampin Up large alphabet dies to spell EASTER.
I embossed all of my pink panels to add interest and make it nice and pretty.
To make this box card you will need…
1 piece of 7.1/2 x 7.1/2 white cardstock. Score on all 4 sides at 1.1/2.
1 piece of 7.7/16 x 7.7/16 white cardstock and score on all 4 sides at 1.1/2, alternatively if you are unsure of the 7/16″ of an inch follow my suggestion in my tutorial below.
3 pieces of 4″ x 8.1/2 white cardstock. Score along the 8.1/2 side at 4″ & 8″, flip the card over and repeat the same score lines.
1 piece of 4″ x 8″ white cardstock. Score along the 8″ side at 4″. Flip the card over and score again at 4″.
8 pieces of 3.3/4 x 3.3/4 pink card to mat on your concertina panels.
2 piece of 4.1/4 x 4,1.4 coloured card to mat the front of the lid.
2 piece of 4″ x 4″ cardstock to layer and decorate on the front of the lid and the other in white card to layer on the back and write your message.
2 pieces of 4.3/8 x 4.3/8 yellow card to mat inside the lid and base.
8-14 pieces of 1.1/4 x 4.1/4 pattern paper to mat onto the sides of the lid and base.
Check out my full tutorial below to see how I made it.
If you would like to see the one I made in 2017 I’ve shared that tutorial below.
I hope you like this updated and slightly bigger version and give it a go.
As I mention in my tutorial, this card can easily be made even bigger and perfect for so many occasions.
Thank you for stopping by.
