Hello, crafty friends!!!
Today, I am sharing a tutorial on how to make a diorama box card.
You will need (2) 4 1/4” x 7 5/16” panels
***don’t be scared, the 5/16 mark is the little line next to the 1/4 mark :)
Score and fold at 1 1/2” and 7”
Cut at an angle on the 5/16” flap
(as shown below)
to make a window
For the inserts (grass), the length
is 6 1/2” - scored at fold at 1/2” and 6”
The height of the inserts will
vary on how high
you want to place
your stamped elements.
1. place a strip of scor tape
on the 5/16” flaps
2. Tape one of the flaps onto the
other panel so that it creates one
long piece, as shown below
3. I recommend working on the background
first before putting the box together.
The background is an A2 panel, 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
4. Adhere the background and adhere one side of the
inserts before closing the box completely. It is
the same method used when building the Lawn Fawn
scalloped box card. Here is their tutorial.
5. Complete the box
by taping the other 5/16 flap onto the other panel's
1 1/2 flap, forming a box
Here is my completed diorama box card:
I love that it folds flat and fits inside an A7 envelope for mailing. The dimension of the card when folded is 4 1/4 x 7". The stamps used for this graduation card are: Woodland Critters, Bunny Friends, and Congrats Grad.
Here is another version of the box card:
This time, I only used one panel that measures 4 1/4 x 7" and the 2 (grassy) inserts.
I hope you have enjoyed today's tutorial and you are inspired to make a diorama box card. It's easy to assemble and you don't need to buy new dies. You can use whatever shape you have for the window, but I love the PPP Stitched Notes Die as it leaves stitched marks along the window.
Until next time!
