First DOWNLOAD YOUR TEMPLATE: BOX templates

1: MAKE A BOX

Cut out the box and lid templates and transfer onto your card  by tracing around it using a pencil and ruler, scoring the fold  lines with the back of a pair of scissors. Cut out the shapes from the card and lie flat.  

2: MAKE A CARD

Take a section of card and trim down to your chosen size and fold in half. Create a smooth crease by running  the back of a pair of scissors along the spine. 

3: TRACE YOUR MOTIFS

Using the template you have downloaded, trace your chosen motifs onto tracing paper and transfer onto your greeting card, tag and box shape.  If you are unsure about how to trace, follow our guide here.
