Baby Boy...Card In A Box!

This card turned out so cute with the button embellishments for a baby boy.  The sentiment is from the Petite Pairs stamp set and I used Pool Party card stock as my base color.  

Here are the card in a box directions:

1. Cut a piece of card stock to measure 8 1/4” x 9”
 2. Score along the 9” end at 2 1/8”, 4 ¼”, 6 3/8” and 8 1/2 “
 3. Turn 90’ and score at 2 3/4”
 4. With the 8 1/4” side on top, and your 2 3/4” score to the left of the card stock cut to measure 6”.  Save the piece that is cut off.
5.     Measure the ‘scrap pieces’ and cut to 3 1/8, making sure to include the ‘tab’.  You’ll end up with a piece that now has a tab along each side.  Cut in half at 1 1/8” so now you have to strips, each with a ‘tab’ on each end.  Fold tabs up in a ‘z’ and adhere sticky strip to ends and set aside.
6. Take main card stock piece so the 2 3/4” side is at the top and cut along the small square score lines to create flaps.  Trim off tiny strip left over, you don’t need it.
7. Fold on the creases and use sticky strip to adhere box together.
8.  To decorate the flaps you can use DSP or card stock for the top four panels, cutting them at 2” x 2 5/8”
9.  Add two ‘z’ strips inside of box – these are your two panels to stick your decorations that you want to ‘pop’ out of the box.
10.  If you want to add card stock for writing your message to the back of the box – this piece will need to be cut at 5 7/8” x 2”
11.  Embellish as desired.  Create your own envelope for this card using the envelope punch board.
