Hi guys! I made a Present Card to show you today using the sweet Rosey Posey from Lili of the Valley!
Cut two pieces of cardstock, one at 5 1/2" x 11 and score in half. The other piece is 6" x 3" and score on 6" side at 1 1/2.
Now, I chose to sew my edges, but you can use that sticky tape if you like, just make sure it it very skinny. It needs to withstand a card going in and out, so make sure it is strong tape. Notice for the larger piece the fold is at the bottom and the lid, well, of course the fold is at the top. The top is cut slightly larger to go over the bottom piece. TIP- Don't forget if you are sewing to sew the bottom edges of the lid BEFORE you sew down the sides and sew very close to the edge.
Decorate like a present and add all your larger embellishments on this piece because the larger items will not fit in the pocket for the card. I punched two holes at the top of the lid and fed my ribbon through so that when it is pulled to take off the top, it won't fall off with all the wear. I added the brand new small, flat Gardenias from Wild Orchid Crafts and some 15mm roses, and 6mm rosebuds and some flatbacked pearls. The sentiment on the tag is an LOTV sentiment.
Lili of the Valley. This card should measure 5" x 5" to go inside easily. If you go much bigger it is too hard to get in and out. Keep in mind FLAT for this card (a very hard job for me).
See how the card tucks inside and the top goes over? Cute huh?
I sure hope you like my little tutorial. I have a little bit more information on where this idea came from on my blog HERE.
