Not sure what to do with a favorite card, especially a personalized card? Try this fun and easy way to turn your card into a gift box! It only takes a few minutes, and you can use items you most likely already have around the house.
- Favorite Card
- Glue (or double-sided tape)
Got everything? Great! Let’s get started…
1. Cut the card in half along the fold.
2. Trim 1/8th inch from along the side and edge of the back of the card
3. Use your ruler to score a straight edge 1” from the edge of all four sides. See below as indicated with pencil, but you may not wish to write on your card, as it will show when the box is complete. Repeat for second half of the card.
5. Fold along the scores, as shown below.
6. Along the narrow edge of the card, make two small cuts, which will become the flaps.
7. Fold up the long edges, and apply glue (or 2-sided tape) to the flaps.
8. Repeat on both ends of the card, and for both halves of the card. Let dry, and you’ve got a perfectly personalized gift box!
We hope you had fun creating your gift boxes. Try it again and again with all of your favorite cards!
