Halloween Box Card

Remember the Box card Josie made for me last month? Well, I decided to make one for my tea swap partner Annie in Denmark. October's tea swap theme is Halloween or the colors purple/black/orange.

I used Imaginesce paper, rats border punch by Martha Stewart, Basic Grey Rubon, Border punch by Stampin' Up and Martha Stewart.
So, do you want to make one of your own? I recommend Arlene's video here. I thought it was the best one out there. Her technique requires no adhesive, just a bunch of origami folding.

Here is the card I made which fits nicely inside the box.

I believe Arlene's beautiful box card measures 4 x 4. My finished box measured 3-1/4 x 3-1/4, measured up from Josie's 3 x 3 box to fit the tea bags I was sending.



The measurements I used to create my box are:

Base: 6 1/4 x 9 1/4
Landscape side: score 1-3/8" and 3" from both ends
Portrait side: score 1-1/2" from both ends.
Then follow folding instructions from Arlene's video.

Happy creating!

Yes, this creation is by far one of your bestest.:) You did great in following the directions of how to fold the box. I am sure that your swap partner will love it.
