Hi friends!

It’s no secret that I have on occasion (cough, cough) made chunky cards.   For today’s Technique Lover’s Challenge, we’re going to make slim line boxes for presentation.

A while back, while surfing some blogs, I came across this little box designed by Angie Kennedy Juda (Chic N Scratch Live~blog). I loved the mechanics of the box and started thinking it would be a great design for a slim line card box. I contacted Angie to see if she would let me use her idea and she was gracious in letting me. Here are the instructions for the altered concept box:

** Make sure you watch Angie’s video. It will help you understand my instructions! **


1 piece of cardstock cut 10 ¾ x 5 7/8” (we’ll call this piece A) ~ see visual in Post #2

1 piece of cardstock cut 6 ½” x 5 3/8” (piece B) ~ see visual in Post #2

1 – 8” piece of twine or string

1 – medium sized brad

Sticky tape

Small hole punch

Optional: acetate, nestabilities


Score piece A @ ½”, 5 1/8”, 5 5/8”, and 10 3/8” along the 10 ¾” side.

Score piece B @ 3/8” on all four sides

Fold all four sides of piece B to loosen the score lines. Cut along the 3/8” scoreline in each corner and apply strong adhesive. Fold the piece into a “tray”.

Fold all score lines on piece A to loosen score lines. At this point, you can die cut a window into the piece for a window, or leave it as is. NOTE: see diagram for which side is the top and which side is the bottom.

On the 3/8” flap of piece A, punch a small hole near the score line in the middle of your piece. Thread your twine through the hole leaving a 2-3” tail hanging out.

Using strong adhesive, attach the remaining twine to the inside (Area C). Now you can adhere your “tray” to Area C as well.

Punch a hole in the top ½” flap (middle centered) and insert brad.

Decorate as desired!
