C5 Envelope/Box Tutorial for Dewdrop Craftz

I've done a quick tutorial for the image as part of a C5 envelope/box which can be used for many purposes.
I have in the past used them to send images to people, for C5 cards that have bulk and cannot be fit into an envelope, but I have several that I keep my images in. If I print out a digi images I usually do a whole sheet - not necessarily the same image and these packets are brilliant for keeping them in and in good condition.

I have used Tildas coloured with Copics and the papers are Basic Grey Phresh and Phunky.

Here are your instructions for the box

1 sheet of A4 card (11 5/8" x 8 1/2")
Equipment for scoring
Corner rounder punch

Please excuse the diagram I shall endeavour to get a better one tomorrow.
For some reason my computer insisted the measurements all went in little boxes !!!!!?????

A sideways diagram
  • On the shorter side score at 3",  3 1/2", 8" and 81/2"
  • On the long sides score 1/2" and 1" 
  • Cut where I have marked with red lines

This is how it should look when cut, scored and creased.

The two small flaps are to stick and tuck into the side to create a firmer base.

I corner round the two top flap corner and the two side flaps at the top.

There is a 6" x 4" (C5) card in this photograph, sorry I haven't got one decorated for you.

This is the finished article with a card and 

Any questions - please email me and I will endeavour to answer them.

This is fantastic & made out of an A4 piece of paper (the number of times I grimace at 12 x 12 instructions!). I have a little ice cream tub of stamped images & this is much much better & great fun too. I have to agree it is rather a sweet witch image....... Love that orange ribbon with the black & mauve.
