Shamrock Box Card

Please click here to enter Cuttin' & Stampin' Ch 14-9 Butterflies. 

Please click here to enter One Stitch At A Time Ch203 For a Boy.

First time making a 3D creation like this. Click here to see Mary of CardzTV wonderful video on how to make.

Created this Sharock Box using:
1. Cricut cartridge Desginer's Calendar for the Shamrocks that are inside the box
2. core'dinations cardstock - Clover Patch, Leprechaun & Shamrock - isn't that appropriate!
3. studio g stamp for sentiment on front
4. the Paper Studio scrapbook paper for Shamrocks paper on flaps & grass paper on sides
5. ribbon

I liked how the card flattens and fits inside an A2 envelope.

For those thinking this is hard to make I tell you if I can make it, it is not hard. However my 1st one I made was not right. I had the cut flaps as the longer pieces since I trimmed up to the score line on wrong side. Next one I made turned out correct which again I used white cardstock. After getting it correct using white cardstock I figured why not use green cardstock. I've made 1 more so far. This first one is for a friend that I use to work with at Hallmark and last name is definitely Irish, as in O'Malley. The 2nd one I made I did not add the ribbon embellishment so it would flatten easier and is being mailed to my daughter for St. Patrick's Day.

I have an idea to make one with an Easter theme.
