First step is to take a 7 1/2 x 7 1/2 square of double sided designer paper or card stock.
score at 2 1/2" and 5". black lines
turn a quarter round and score again at 2 1/2" and 5". Red lines
Now you are going to score each corner square right down the middle. Blue line
Look at mine for folding. Corners are mountain folds. The other lines are valley folds. You will fold it towards the center forming a box. No securing is needed.
These two scraps are for your center sentiment.
Box part of the card is finished. On to the lid. You will need a 4 1/4 " piece of double sided paper or card stock. Score at 7/8" on each side.
See where I have cut. This forms you gluing tabs.
Look closely at the white template . Do you see where I trimmed these tabs down just a tiny wee bit at the edge.
Here is my lid all 4 tabs have been trimmed and I have attached my scor -tape. You can use red line tape.
Remove the tape backing and putting the tape to the inside form your lid by bringing up your sides
towards the center..
Now decorate your lid. Here is mine with the box. The lid holds the box part together.
Your partner can fold it and put the 2 pieces together.
