Card in a Box Tutorial...

Hiya Everyone, Hope you are all doing ok
Boy is the weather deceiving out there, the sun is beaming but it is oh so nippy
I need to get a lot of colouring done today eeeeek - good job its cold outside lol

Today I have a tutorial to share with you for the
Card in a Box
This isn't a video tute but a pictorial one
(if I tried to do a video at the moment my kiddos would no doubt be giving you a running commentary lol)

A lot of people have the Ultimate Board from Crafter's Companion
and have asked over on Facebook how to make one using this board so I have one for you
As always if you have any questions you can always email me and I will answer you :)

I have had my Ultimate for a while, my hubby brought it for me and It really is a go to tool, with all the other boards you can buy to slot onto it as well, you always seem to have a shape for everything! and scoring and measuring is now easy

What you will need
Ultimate Board and score tool
Card which measures 11 inches by 5 1/2 inches – I used Centura pearl
Collall All Purpose Glue

 Open your Ultimate Board up to the middle section – so you are working with the box side.Take your cardstock and line up along the butt of the board on the inches/box lid side. SCORE on the 5th line, Move your card along so the scored line is now on the butt and score the 5th line again.
 REPEAT this until you have 4 score lines in total – the last panel will be narrower (thats for your adhesive)
 Turn your cardstock, and score along the 5th line again, score the first 3 PANELS, and the last narrow panel, leave the 4th one unscored
 Your card will look like the above picture
 Now take your cardstock and scissors – SNIP the score lines down to the middle, and cut away a piece of the narrow strip – make sure you cut these from the shortest half (you will see – from when you turned your card that one side is longer than the other)
 Burnish all your score lines and add Collall All-Purpose glue to the narrow strip.
 Construct your box and stick this to the inside.
 Next take a strip of paper and place it on your Ultimate board – you need to score along the 1st, 6th and 7th lines, cut along the 7th line, you will need to make TWO of these strips
 Fold your strips into a “Z” – this means folding each end over in the opposite direction
 Add Collall All-Purpose glue to these and slot them into your box, it does not matter the distance you stick these, whatever you are happy with
 You will need to let your box dry then you can fold it flat – and the fun part you can decorate however you like!

***You can decorate your box panels up first, it all depends on your preference)

I used the gorgeous Barkley from the recent 4dd Papercraft Kit, which you can now get from Crafter's Companion to decorate up my box

I hope this tute was ok and useful to you :)
Thanks for Popping By
