After making the pouch in my last post, I thought about other ways to send small gifts in the mail, and remembered that there was a box card that I wanted to try. It uses a whole 8.5 x 11 inch sheet of paper, so I wanted to test and make sure I understood the folds before using a paper that I liked. I grabbed one of the more atrocious papers in my collection, a sheet from and old Michaels Slab (remember those?) and went to work.
I did wonder about the dimensions - could I alter the size? I ripped a page from an old Vogue magazine (thanks, Mom) and trimmed it down to a 9 x 6 rectangle, and made all the folds at 1.5 inch intervals.
