3×3 Card Gift Box

Today’s project is a 3 x 3 card gift box to hold 12 mini cards and 12 envelopes!

I shared the card pictured above in yesterday’s post, if you’d like the project details.

Here’s how the cards and envelopes fit inside:

Here’s what the box and lid look like empty:

And here are two different versions by just changing the paper pattern:

How fun is that?!? What a great gift for someone – especially filled with Valentines this time of year! Without further ado, here’s my video tutorial:

Here’s the template for the box base:

  1. Julie-I love your boxes & really like your videos! You make the instructions easy for the beginner, the seasoned box maker & everyone in between. Thanks so much for sharing! As a fellow SU Demonstrator, your boxes help me gift fun surprises to my Customers

  2. Hey Julie, I was looking at the written measurements and for the box base for the scoring, you say 9.5 to score but in your written instructions it says 9. I haven’t made mine yet so thought you might want to know there is a discrepancy.

    I love that you do 3-D projects and show the template. Makes it so much easier for me to duplicate.

    Thanks for all you do.

  3. I thoroughly enjoyed your video! There is one abbreviation I didn’t understand! What does Dinoroar Dsp mean? Also, did you make the 3×3 cards/envelopes or are they from the catalog? I haven’t seen a catalog for years.
    Thanks,

    • Hi Sandy! DSP stands for Designer Series Paper – it’s our patterned paper – and the name of the one I used on this project is called Dinoroar. I made the 3×3 cards, but the ready-made envelopes can be purchased through my online store! Let me know if you’d like me to send you a catalog!
