Pretty pink standup corner box cards for the Handmade Expo Markets.

So I do really love a card that sits up or has a fancy you fold, and this design is super simple and ever so effective. I have seen it before but it surfaced again recently on the GDP challenge which I follow avidly ( though I seldom get a chance to enter despite my best intentions).

This is a simple card which folds flat for postage, and I will have a whole stash of them at the Rockhampton Handmade Expo Markets markets next week . I will also be running a class to make this later in the year.



Take piece of A4 cardstock and trim it to    25cm x 15cm
Cut panels 4 at                                              5cm x 14.5cm
cut 3 pattern panels and one plain panel at   4.5cm x 14cm
cut two circles of scrap cardstock                1.25inches
front decorative panel whatever size you like
  • With the cardstock sitting Landscape in your scorer, score at 5.5cm, 11cm, 16.cm and 23cm.
  • fold along crease lines and adhere 3cm flap behind one panel to make your box.
  • score and fold the circles in half. - actually it's easiest to score a long strip in half and then punch out the circe - see photo below
  • on the front glue one half of each circle either side of your centre fold, the other free half of the circle is your anchor point for the front panel.
So I guess it's easier to see, so here are a few photos from construction. 








decorate - then write and post to your friend!!!!!

More samples to follow. Keep an eye out!

Thanks for looking,
