Nan 90th Birthday Box

I have made this box using an 30cm by 15cm

I scored the card at 7cm, 14cm and 28cm

I scored width of the card at 7cm

I used the 2cm on the end of the scored card as a glue tab. On the top section of the box cut this section away.

Attach strips of card inside the box. Cut 9cm strips and score 1cm one each side and these will be your glue tabs.

I attached acetate to the strips to add my embellishments. I have used various die cuts with lace and ribbon to embellish the box. I printed personalised sentiments and attached them to the box.
