Today’s tutorial features easy Christmas box cards using the Papercraft Essentials gift included in issue 167. These quick cards feature a little aperture window, plus the box collapses flat and makes it so easy to post. They’re perfect for last-minute Christmas makes too!
To start off you’ll need 2 pieces of cardstock trimmed to 4.25 inches x 5.5 inches. We used the Father Christmas papers and toppers included in the magazine to create our background and foreground.
Next score each piece at .5 inch and 1 inch on both sides along the short edge. (Place your card on your scoreboard in landscape orientation).
Die-cut an aperture with square, heart, circle, or oval die to create a peekaboo effect. We used the Wonky Stitches Nesting Circles to die cut a circle aperture on our foreground.
Add a sentiment and you’re done! Easy peasy, right?
