Hi there Core Fans! It’s Joann with you today to share a fun little Christmas card and box. I have used the box for my card but you could easily use it as gift box. I think this is going to be a box that I am going to make again for some of my co-workers this year since I was really happy how it turned out 🙂
I just love how this box opens up.
and here is a closer look at the card. I used the Core’dinations Glitter Silk Cardstock. I just love how it came out.
Finally, here is the card open

To make this project follow these steps.
The base of the box is created by starting with a piece of White Cardstock 11″ x 11 1/2″. Place the card stock on your Scor-Pal with the 11 1/2″ side up and scor at the 1″, 2 1/2″, 9″ and 10 1/2″ marks. Flip the card stock and scor at the 1″, 2 1/2″, 8 1/2″ and 10″ marks.
Cut off the corners so your card stock looks like this. This will be the base of your box.
To make the tops of the box start by taking a piece of card stock 6 1/4″ x 9″ and place on your Scor-Pal. Note: this needs to be done twice, once for each side. Starting on the 9″ side, scor at the 1 1/2 and 7 1/2″ marks, flip your card stock over and scor at the 1 1/4″ and 2 3/4″ marks.
Next mark and cut off the pieces identified with the X’s
Your finished piece should like like this. The flap on the bottom will be glued to the bottom of the box to allow the top to open.
Your assembled box will look like this. By gluing the flaps to the bottom of the box it allows the box to open up in a different manner.
Finally, decorate your box with lots of gorgeous Core’dinations Cardstock. To turn this into a Santa box, add a strip of Black across the middle of the box and a buckle!
For the card, cut out the pieces using your electronic cutting machine (for details on cut file see supply list). Once you are finished you will end up with these pieces. Choose whatever color you wish for the glitter paper.
To make the 3D star for the center of the card, cut 7 of the medium sized stars, scor them in the middle and glue them back to back. Once the glue is dry, fasten the star to only one side of the card so the card will open and close.
Thanks for stopping by for a peek… Have a great day my crafty friends!
