Angels Card in a Box

I am so in love with the Card in a Box technique!  We just about sold out of these at our Craft Fair last weekend!  I had one box made but didn't have an idea of what to put in it!  After the fair, I saw these cute little angels made from a ribbon die.  I will have to go back and add a link to those angels but I didn't  "pin" it at the time.  

 The Stain Glass window in the back is from a Memory Box die that I cut out several different colors to create the stain glass look.  I also added some glitter to the die cut!

 I love the paper I used for the outside of the box.  I want to say it's K & Company but I thru away the outside cover and now I can't remember....

                                         Here is the back of the card - I love the vintage look!
UPDATE:  I did find the link to the Angels I saw on Pinterest.  Check out Dale's cute Angels!

Here are just a few pictures of the 2 tables we had at the Craft's fair last weekend!  My sister's and I had a lot of fun meeting people and talking about our craft.  We didn't sell everything but we were happy with what we did sell!   I think we may do another Craft Fair next year!

Card in a Box Carolers!

 Here is another Card in a Box that I made for the Christmas Fair in Topsham at the Cornerstone Baptist Church on Route 196 on November 16th from 9:00am to 1:00 pm. My sister's and I plan on having a table there with lots of paper crafts!  I have made these Carolers before but this time I used the Card in a Box technique!   The heads are made from the ornament punch!  I did shape the little girl's head with my scissors- just to make it a little smaller. 

 I love the paper I used from K & Company!  It has a little shine to it too!  One of the best things about this technique is that you the box collapses so you can mail it!  Not too mention it is so easy to make!  The hardest part is deciding what to put in it!  If you check out my last post- you will see the link to the instructions!

The last picture is a shot of the group of the Cards in a Box that I have done so far!  I think I want to make a few more.  I find the 3D effect really interesting and different.  Plus they are really fun to make!

Card in a Box!

I hope this post isn't too long!  My sister's and I are doing a Craft Fair in two weeks!  
We have all been working on many different projects - so I thought I would share my newest project! 
I found this technique on Pinterest (of course)  -and fell in love with it!  Monica Gale does a fabulous video with great instructions!  She does do the measurements in Centimeters.  I will give you the measurements in inches below.  At least it is the measurements I used.  Check out her video first to get an idea of how to make this adorable card/box!


Side View    
I used a piece of 12 x 12 card stock and cut it at 5 7/8.  You will score on the 12 inch side at
2 3/4, 5 1/2, 8 1/4 and 11 inches.   Then turn your card stock so the short side is at the top of your score board and score at 2 3/4.   You can follow Monica's instructions from here.  I didn't add the measurements for the decorative paper since I think everyone may have a different idea of how much of a rim they like to have showing around your decorative paper.
For the inserts measurements - I used 3.75 inches x 1 inch and then scored each end at 1/2 inch.

I used the owl punch to make the little penguins.  Their little flippers are the ears of the owls. I love that Stampin Up punch!

Back before sentiment is added

 Here is another peaceful scene that I made using a bunch of different tree dies and a Memory Box die of deer.  I don't think you can see all the glitter I used on the trees.  This box is one of my favorite. 

 I love how these boxes fold and can be mailed quite easily!  I will be making some envelopes with my Envelop Punch Board.

 I think if we have any cat lover's at the fair- they will like this card.  You can't see it but there is
also a cat sitting on the window sill.  I used the Madison Window from Memory Box.  I did cut it down a little so it didn't stick up quite as high.  The tree is from a Martha Stewart punch.

 Here is a shot of all three!  I am going to make a few more and then start on something else. We only have 2 weeks!  Yikes!  Next year we will plan to start earlier!!
