Tales from Willson Wood Parcel Card

The Tales from Willson Wood  collection has turned out to be my favourite Docrafts collection of 2016.  This parcel card shows off its beautiful papers and images (this one is my favourite) beautifully.

  1. Cut a sheet of card to measure 18 x 28.5 cm.  In a landscape orientation score at 9, 18, and 27 cm.  Turn 90 degrees and score two parallel lines (each 5cm long and 2.5 cm on either side of the scoreline) on the 18 cm scoreline.  The first one at 12 cm and the second at 16cm.  Join all scorelines to create a scored rectangle which measures 4 x 5 cm.  Take a craft knife and steel ruler and cut along the two vertical scorelines.  Do not cut along the horizontal scorelines.
  2. Fold and crease along all the scorelines with paper creaser.  Force the scored rectangle area into a recessed shape and the rest of the card blank into an elongated triangular shape. 
  3. Cut two pieces of planking paper to measure 8.5 x 17.5 cm.  Cut and measure around the recessed area and ink around all edges with Chocolate dye ink pad.  Stick into place on the front.  Repeat with the second piece and stick to the back of the project.
  4. Cut a strip of co-ordinating paper to measure 3.5 x 18 cm and stick to the front of the card.  Cut a strip of co-ordinating paper to measure 3 x 18 cm and stick to the first strip.  Choose a decoupage topper from the paper pack and make up.  Ink edges of completed decoupage topper.  Cut an oval mat from colour co-ordinating cardstock.   Mat and stick to the front of the card as shown.
  5. Cut a second piece of card to measure 12 x 16.8 cm.   Score at 4 cm intervals in a portrait orientation (4 and 8 cms).  Turn to a landscape orientation and score at 4, 8, 12, and 16 cms.  Cut to match the diagram, creating the tab sections as you cut.   Decorate all six faces with patterned paper squares, cut to measure 3.5 x 3.5 cm.  Glue all tab sections together to form a 4 cm cubed box.
  6. Decorate box and card with chosen embellishments to taste.
