Guys, I have a confession to make. I am sick of DIY projects. I still have a ton, but I am embracing the K.I.S.S. philosophy, for lack of time if not for my own sanity. The other day I had to order some paper and envelopes from Paper Source, and I figured that I'd go ahead and order a few extra things since I was already paying for shipping.
Ever since I saw this card box, I've had my eyes on those cardboard suitcases from Paper Source. I loved the card box idea, and finally decided to order them. One more thing to check off the list, right? Right!
This card box was super easy. I ordered two suitcases, the large and the medium, cut the bottom out of the smaller one with a box cutter, and then traced that hole on the larger one. Cut that out too. The holes definitely aren't perfect, but no one's going to see the inside! I taped the two suitcases together with a bunch of shipping tape until it was secure.
After it was all taped, I cut a slit in the top. I drew the rectangle on with sharpie, and tried my hardest to make straight cuts.
But alas, I'm terrible with a box cutter. The slot was all jagged, but nothing a little ribbon couldn't fix! I threw a bow around it for a little added something. Adds security, too, I think!
I'm still debating whether or not this is big enough, though. As it is, it's about 7 inches tall. I think it will be okay, but do you think I should add another tier?
What did you use for your card box?
