U-Fold Box Card



Hi crafty friends,
Its been a while but I've been thinking of you all.  Crazy days here. My beloved Cavie, Coco, has had her babies.  There are 6 in total, with 3 girls and 3 boys and wow are they perfect. Of course I'm a little biased but I love my Cavs so much and they give me tons of love too.
But back to crafting, Ive been busy creating the past couple of weeks and heres a new tutorial for you all. Please check it out. Its on youtube, and if you haven't already subscribed, please do. You will be notified every time I post a new video and its free!

Here are the dimensions for the U-Fold Box Card:
Cardstock:
Powder Pink - 11 3/4" (29.5cm) x 4 1/8" (10.5cm) Scor at 2" & 3 7/8" (5 & 9.8cm) either end
        1" (2.5cm) x 6" (15.2cm) Scor @ 1" (2.5cm) either end
        2" (5cm) x 7 3/4" (19.5cm)

Sahara Sand - 4"(10.2cm) x 3 7/8"(10cm) Scor @ 2" (5cm)

        3" (7.8cm) x 6" (15.3cm) for the ovals
        Scrap piece for stamping and punching

Fresh Florals DSP Stack 1 3/4"(4.5cm) x 3 7/8"(10cm) you need 2 pieces of this
        3 3/4" (9.5cm) x 2" (5cm)
Scrap pieces of Berry Burst and Powder Pink for the rolled roses
Scrap piece of Whisper White for the Bunting

If you are using a letter size sheet of yardstick (8 1/2" x 11") then you will cut your cardstock at 4 1/4" x 11" and scor it at 2", 3 5/8", 7 3/8", 9"
Your table piece will be 3 1/2" x 3 5/8" and scored at 2"

Until next time,
Stay Crafty,
XO Tan

    1. Hi Leann, there is supposed to be a gap of approx 1/4". Hope this helps. I would love to see your finished card. I hope it went well

  3. HELP!! I'm ripping my hair out! Made sure all my measurements were the same as yours, watched the video over & over and still can't close my card?!? The 2 pieces (inside brace & front panel going across) are way too long & the card doesn't fold flat! The part I keep trying to freeze to see how you fold it closed is on FF & you don't show how. I did catch you cutting something & possibly peeling the front panel up?? Can't say for sure. Even had to cut the "table top" panel down to fit in the "U"...what am I doing wrong?!? Please help. I'm trying to make a workbench for my son's birthday next week. I love this card & really want to make it. Thank you!

  4. Love the cards. I tried this too and don't understand how you close the card. If you have the piece that runs across the front, if you fold it there's extra card stock. Can you help. It looks like when you fold the card the two side pieces are facing up.
