I used Coordinations cardstock, which is 12x12 (Rosey Reds- and this is In the Pink). My card will fit into a C6 envelope.
- I cut the cardstock 4" x 11 3/4"
-Score along the long edge @ 1 1/2", 5 3/4", 7 1/4" and 11 1/2"
(If you used 11 1/2" cardstock, you could just remove 1/4" from the front and back- making the cardstock 4" x's 11 1/4" and the score marks 1 1/2", 5 1/2", 7", 11").
-Regardless of the above measurement- you will score along the 4" side of the cardstock @ 1 1/2".
Next, snip up to the 1 1/2" line- that is where the front and side panels are formed. I fold all but the last fold lines- if you want the back to be stiffer (which is the last long section, do not fold that part- although it will not matter- you will cover it up anyway).
-Cut a piece of cardstock 1" longer than the front measurement. Score at 1/2" from each end- fold these and apply tape to each end and adhere to the inside of the box. For the square box, you will use two of these, but for the rectangular boxes- there is not enough room for two of them. I cut my cardstock between 3/4" to 1" wide for this piece- use up your scraps : ).
Next, decorate as desired. I used Basic Grey Bittersweet DSP and Picolo pieces with Enamel Embossing Powder to decorate my card. Here is the rest of the card:
