Parcel Card Tutorial
Santa has a Prezzie Cut it Out dies and Stamp bundle
Scoring board and bone folder.
Step by Step:
Card base template
2 x white card – 6 3/8″ x 3 3/8″
2 x patterned paper – 6 1/4″ x 3 1/4″
4 x white card – 1 3/8″ x 1 3/8″
4 x patterned paper – 1 1/4″ x 1 1/4″
Lay the patterned paper onto the card base (do not glue!) and with a pencil mark where the parcel sits. Cut both the patterned paper and the white card layers to removed this section, as shown.
Adhere all the patterned papers to the white card layers.
Adhere the panels to the card base.
Apply a strip of 1/4″ double sided tape along the narrow section at the end of the card base.
Stamp the image onto white card
Adhere the patterend paper to the white circle and mount the image on top using 3D foam dots. Adhere the circles to the front of the card, postitioned so that the top peeks up a little from the top, again using 3D foam dots. Stamp the sentiment, cut out using your preferred shape and adhere on pop dots also.
Remove the double sided tape from the narrow section of the card base, and close as shown.
Using the above template, or the silhouette file, take the box and apply glue to the areas marked on the template.
Close up the box
Adhere a panel to the top, front and sides.
Wrap twine around the box and tie in a bow at the front.
Pop the parcel into the hole and your card is complete.
