Mini Survival Kit & Angled Tri-Fold Card

Today’s projects feature beautiful blues from the Countryside Inn Designer Series Paper – one of my favorites! The tiny box is a Mini Survival Kit (lip balm & mints) and the fun fold is an Angled Tri-Fold Card! I figured out an easy way to get the angles just right!

While purple is my favorite color, blue is a close second! Night of Navy is one of my absolute favorite Stampin’ Up! colors – I reach for it often! I can’t wait to share these projects with you! I hope you’ll give them both a try!

Mini Survival Kit

The Mini Survival Kit is inspired by a swap I received from Liz Hightower at a demonstrator event (which was inspired by one of my projects). It’s a divided box that holds a Mini Chap-Ice and Mini Tic Tacs!

So stinkin’ cute!! I found both of these “inserts” on Amazon:

Chap-Ice® | Assorted Mini Lip Balm | 50 Count

This is such a cute little box to give to anyone as a random act of kindness or a thank you!

Here’s the template for reference (not to scale):


  • Cardstock (box) – 4-3/4″ x 5″
    • Score along the 4-3/4″ side at 3/4″ and 1-1/2″ from each side
    • Score along the 5″ side at 3/4″ and 2-1/8″ from each side
  • Cardstock (insert) – 1-1/4″ x 2-7/8″
    • Score along the 2-7/8″ side at 3/4″, 1-3/8″, and 2″
  • Basic White Layer – 1-1/4″ x 1-5/8″
  • Designer Series Paper Layer – 1-1/8″ x 1-1/2″ (landscape)

PAPER SAVING TIP! Want to get 4 boxes out of 1 sheet of 8-1/2″ x 11″ cardstock? Cut your cardstock to
4-1/4″ x 5″ and score along the 4-1/4″ side at 1/2″ and 1-1/4″ from each side.

Angled Tri-Fold Card

Have you tried creating an Angled Tri-Fold Card yet? This is the first one I’ve created, but I’ve wanted to create one for a long time! The angles held me back – LOL! I figured out an easy way to get the patterned paper layer & angles just right!

This card has a magnetic closure, but you could use a Velcro dot, a belly band, or a ribbon bow to keep it closed! Here’s what it looks like open:

I hope you’ll give this fun fold a try!


  • Cardstock – 5-1/2″ x 11″
    • Score along the 11″ side at 3-3/8″ from each side
    • Along the 5-1/2″ side, add tick marks at 1″ from each side on both sides
  • Designer Series Paper – 5-5/16″ x 3-1/8″ (2 pcs – portrait)

    1. I love your cards and little boxes. A great little something to give when giving a special card to someone. Your instructions are always spot on. Thank you for your hard work and everything you do for us for making our card making easier.

    2. What a neat project and very cool card. The angles would have been daunting had you not showed us the perfect and easy way to make the dsp cuts. I love your love of math and drive for accuracy! Every project you demonstrated that I have made has come out just as perfectly as you said. Congrats on the over 600 thumbs up! There are lots of videos and ‘lives’ by lots of lovely creative people, but you are uniquely wonderful in allowing for interaction, live responses to questions and excellent demonstrations and explanations. You inspire! Thank you, Julie!
