|Making use of the When Pigs Fly Stamp (tut here)|
So, you'll need:
- 6 business cards (redundant, no?)
- Tape. Trust me, you'll enjoy double sided tape MUCH more. I'm too lazy to get off the couch and go buy some and I've cursed myself up and down over the last couple of days.
Put faces together. The key: make the cards centered, and as close to 90 degrees as you can get them.
|Fold one card around the other. Make edges as neat as possible.|
|Flip over & fold remaining straight card around its mate.|
Repeat step one, twice more. You should end up with:
Pull the cards apart, grab your tape, and you'll begin to construct your box. Keep your corners tight and close as you work.
One more, and basic foundation is done...
|Slide in last card|
|Last bit o' tape|
|Push her down|
|Note: I attach the lid outside|
|Porcupine quill from Israel unnecessary. In fact, you don't even see it.|
I like to carve stamps, so I personalize the lid with a stamp BEFORE I attach it to the box.
|Christmas for the coworkers. IN the boxes. I don't give empty boxes... sheesh!|
Let me know how it works for you. Or if you have other nifty business card tricks.
