Hello & Welcome to my tutorial on how to create the gorgeous Woodland Scene Matchbox Cards. There will be plenty of photographs to follow, along with some handy instructions.
So, without further ado…
To assemble the base, lay it out flat, & as per the instructions which come with the kit, fold the inner score lines inwards all the way around.
Lay the box out flat again & repeat with the middle score lines.
Lay out flat again & fold the outer score lines backwards.
To create the actual box, fold the longer sides inwards, push the corners where they crease & fold the end inwards. This will lock the sides into position.
Once you have repeated the process with the other end, your box base is completed.
To make the struts for the ‘pop-up’ effect, you will need 3 pieces of card the same width of the base x 4cm wide. Score & fold them at 2cm, adding some double-sided tape along one side.
Then place the first strut at the front of the box base, leave a gap of between 2-3cm & attach the second strut. Repeat with the third.
Now for the really fun part! Use the die-cuts to decorate the inside of the box, using whatever takes your fancy!
To assemble the sleeve, fold on all the score lines & add a strip of double-sided tape to the tab, fold the whole sleeve in half & it’s done.
Now you can decorate the sleeve to co-ordinate with the box & remember to slide the sleeve from the front so that your carefully created scene will pop-up.
Thank you for following this tutorial today, I really hope that it has been helpful.
So, until next time,
