Is it a card or is it a gift box? It’s both and it’s a lot of fun to create and give! This special little gift is perfect to give to a teacher filled with useful supplies or can be used for a fun idea for a box for the tooth fairy and these are just a couple of ideas on how this can be used.
On a scoring board, score each of the squares in half and rotate it and score in half again. Note: It is very important that all scored lines and all folded lines should be very crisp to make the folding easier and to prevent the paper from denting in other areas.
Fold each of the corners up to the center as shown in the picture on all 4 of the squares.
Fold each of the sides in towards the middle and then unfold it and fold the two remaining sides towards the center.
Leave two of the sides folded upwards and unfold the “triangles” on that are facing the top and the bottom as shown.
Now, fold the ends up and over. Repeat this for all of the boxes. The second fold line nearest the bottom should be the one that is folded at this point.
Fold the side flap over and down into the bottom of the box. If necessary, you can add a small line of adhesive to attach and keep the flap in place. You can, also, add a small square of patterned paper into the bottom to cover the flaps for a more finished and decorated look.
You should now have 4 completed drawers.
Cut 4 strips of cardstock that measure 2 1/8” x 7 ¾”.
Score each of the strips at 7/8”, 3 1/8”, 4 ¼” and 6 ½”. Fold each strip on the score lines.
Add some adhesive to the flap and adhere each on closed.
Slide the 4 drawers into the finished covers.
Cut a 5” square and adhere it to the bottom of the boxes making sure that each box faces a different direction.
Cut a 5” x 10” card base and score it in half.
Open the card up on the scoring board and score it at 2 ½” from the left side. Lay this piece aside for a few minutes while you do the following steps.
Cut a second 5” square and attach a piece of 4” patterned paper to it. This paper is from the Boardwalk by Bo Bunny Collection.
Stamp and die cut several crayons using the Color My World stamp and die set by Lawn Fawn onto patterned paper and cardstock.
Stamp the sentiment onto a die cut piece of cardstock, as well.
Attach all of the pieces to the 5” square using a 3-d adhesive and then attach it to the card base using the tape runner.
Add a 2” x 4 ¾” strip of patterned paper onto the card base at the edge of the square.
Attach the card to the top of the drawers and you’re project is now complete.
Have fun making this Easel Card Drawer Box and use it for whatever you can imagine. It’s perfect for a desk or on a table and can be decorated for any theme or occasion. It’s the perfect surprise for anyone.
