A quick and easy box to make is the 2, 4, 6, 8 box.  Its name comes from the fact that you score it at 2″, 4″, 6′ and 8″.

You’ll start with a sheet of cardstock measuring 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″.  On the long side you’ll score at 2″, 4″, 6′ and 8 inches.

On the short side, score it at 2 inches.

Next,  cut up from the bottom of the paper, up to the 2 inch score line.  These will be your flaps.  Cut the small section out from the bottom right.

The picture below shows the inside of the box.  If you want a hole so that you can see inside the box, put it on the panel indicated.  Also, place adhesive (I recommend Sticky Strip or Fast Fuse for all of the areas where I indicate adhesive) on the flap shown.  Tip:  If you want to add DSP to your box, do it now BEFORE you cut a hole in the panel.  You should have (4) pieces of DSP that measure 1-3/4″ x 3-1/4″.

This is the outside of the box. I’ve shown which flaps you should add adhesive to as well as what order to fold the flaps in when you start assembling.  I’ve done it so that the last flap will fold towards the back of the box.

When putting the box together, I like to adhere the little flap to the opposite side first.  Then fold the flaps in!

Thinking of You Side Fold Card

Thinking of You Side Fold open

Another card today using the Watercolor Wonder paper.  I hope you aren’t getting tired of this paper!  This is a normal sized card but on the front, you make a score line at 2-3/4″ and fold it back to create this fun fold.  It doesn’t lie flat so it was hard to take a picture of it closed.
