It’s my great pleasure to be involved with the ESAD 2017 Holiday Catalogue Fancy Folds and 3D Projects blog hop. With all the talent of Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from Australia and New Zealand I’m sure you’ll pick up some great ideas from the creations shared.
This is known as a Gift Box in a Card. I found it on Pinterest and I believe Sandy Carlson made it for those on the Thailand Incentive Trip. I’ve altered it so it will fit metric measurements but will give you both and will have a Facebook Live Video on how to make it on Monday 11 a.m. (AESDT). Isn’t it cute? You couldn’t pop this one in the mail like you can Card In A Box, say, but it would make a lovely gift when presented to someone. You could make it for any occasion, not just Christmas. Here’s another look at it:
It’s quite an easy card really . Here are the brief instructions fir the Gift Box in a Card for the ESAD 2017 Holiday Catalogue Fancy Folds and 3D Projects:
