Father's Day Card-in-a-Box

Afternoon Crafters

Here is the first of the May- June projects I submitted to the Docrafts PDT

A fun to make greetings card for Father's Day but equally adaptable for any male themed occassion.


1. Cut a piece of A4 Kraft card to measure 16 x 29.5 cm.  Score at 7, 14, 21 and 28 cm in landscape orientation.  Turn and score at 7 cm up to 21 cm scoreline.

    2. Cut along 7, 14 and 21 cm scoreline up to the 7 cm scoreline.  Fold and crease along all the scorelines with paper creaser.  Cut silver mirror card to measure 6.5 x 8.5 cm (three times) and emboss each piece using embossing folder.

3. Stick to lower portion of box with Anita’s Tacky Glue and add small silver brad to each side at bottom edge (top edge will not be seen).
4. Cut black cardstock to 3 x 6.5 cm (six times).  These will become the drawers.  Cut silver mirror card at 2.5 x 6 cm (six times) and emboss using embossing folder.  Mat each piece onto black cardstock.  Pierce each “drawer” and add a large brad to each.  Stick two drawers to each flap with 3D foam tape equally spacing them.

5. Cut another piece of mirror card to measure 6.5 x 13 cm and emboss with folder.  Glue to back of box and add silver brads to top corners of mirror board.  Glue tab to back of card.  Cut two strips of Kraft card to measure 3 x 9 cm; score at 1 cm at each end.  Fold to create “Z” shape and stick into box, parallel to each other.

6. To decorate, select desired elements from A4 Ultimate Die-cut and Paper Pack.  Stamp various tools onto paper and paper piece to create ‘tools’.  Detail with silver gel ink pen. Mount each of elements onto narrow strips of acetate. Arrange elements as shown or to your desired outcome.
