Magnolia 3D-card

Hi everyone!

I have a new card for you at The Rubber Buggy. If you're a follower you'll notice I'm back with another 3D-box card using Magnolia stamps again. Well, what can I say - they're a hoot to make and they come together super easy and fastare than you might think.

Besides the colouring and fuzzy cutting the images, which you might do even if you're just layering them on a "flat" card. The box itself is nothing.

I decieded that I wanted to make my box 2,5" x 2,5" (don't forget to add some extra for the flap that will overlap as closure) and 3" high.

Therefore I started with a paper sized to 10,5" x 5,5". (4x2,5"+0,5") x (3"+2,5") - does that makes sense? If not let me know and I'll try to explain it better for you. There is also a lot of tutorials on youtube, I've just adjusted the measurements...

Then I scored the paper at 2,5"; 5"; 7,5" and 10" across the longer side.
Left one of those "spaces" untouched (That will be the back of your box, I just find that it made it sturdier. You can score it if you'd like to) and scored the remaining 3 at 2,5" across the shorter side.
I cut the scoremarks on the 2,5" - that will create the flaps of the box.

After that it's pretty much just to assemble the box. To create something to hold your cut images and die cuts to just place a "bar" on the top of the box opening and attach it from inside to inside. How many you want depends on how many layeres you want. Good luck! Let me know if you'd like more help :)
