5″ x 7″ & 6″ x 6″ Envelope Boxes

Hi everyone, today is a very boring, yet very useful tutorial!

After the last 2 weeks of cardmaking and with some having a lot of dimension, I thought It would be a good idea to make a separate video for these box envelopes for you to refer too when needed.

Envelope Boxes

I’ve made 2 styles both in 6″ x 6″ & 5″ x 7″

First a Gift Box style with a separate lid and then a Flip Lid style.

In my video below, I show the Gift Box style first, if you would like the Flip Lid style you need to skip to minutes.
