Begin with a piece of cardstock cut to 5 1/2" x 8 1/2". Score at 1/2", 2 1/2", 4 1/2", and 6 1/2". Then score along the other edge, beginning at the end without the 1/2" score line, score at 3" but end the score line after three of the scored sections as shown.
I've written the measurements on the template. Please note that the red dotted lines mean cutting lines. The remainder of the lines are scoring lines. You will note the absence of a line on the last section, right by the tab. This section remains unfolded while the rest fold over as shown below.
This is how the paper looks folded. You will also require one additional strip of cardstock measuring 1" x 5". Cut this in half. The two pieces will be 1" wide and 2 1/2" long. Each one is scored at 1/4" and 2 1/4" and then the ends are folded in a "Z".
Put double sided tape along the tab for the box and also along each of the 1/4" tabs on the small pieces.
This is how the box will look assembled. There is no bottom to the box. The inside dividers (small "Z" folds) are approximately equally spaced.
And after that it's all a matter of decoration. Be careful not to have too much of an overhang at the top or sides or it will make it difficult to fit the collapsed card into the envelope.
Thanks Heidi for posting this where it can be easily found. Not to mention for the details so it will fit in a standard envelope. Perfect! Stamp camp here I come with my own version. Hugs - JeanReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing the instructions! My class will love this.ReplyDelete
Heidi - Thanks for this. The other instructions I found are too big. I need something that is standard size so I can make it for From Our Hearts.ReplyDelete
You're welcome, Candi. That's what I had been struggling with, the larger sizes I found elsewhere. I prefer things to fit in our SU envelopes.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for sharing these dimensions. Glad to have found one that fits into our standard envelope.ReplyDelete

I love your tutorial--it is so easy to follow. I so want to make one of these card in a box. But, I can not find where to get your template.? Again thank you for sharing your time and talent firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks again, SandyReplyDelete

So nice of you to share, thank you, from Western AustraliaReplyDelete
the things that go in the box, are they glued?ReplyDelete
I used double sided tape and window strips, but you can easily use strips of paper and glue. I wouldn't use snail, however, because it won't hold.Delete
Thank you so much for the pics and the measurements/instructions. I appreciate your help. I'm anxious to get started!ReplyDelete
I know you'll enjoy making yours. People are always amazed when they open the envelope and get one of these cards.Delete
