The Ultimate Fun Fold Card?

It's time for another fun Paper Pumpkin alternate project, and this one could be the ultimate fun-fold card! Using the 10th Anniversary Paper Pumpkin kit made the final design easy, and Mary Deatherage's cutting instructions were a life-saver. You can find her box card blog post here, and my Paper Pumpkin alternate project below.

It's not something crazy impressive until you open it:

If you've ever made your own boxes out of cardstock, then this box card is really a breeze. Start with a piece of Garden Green cardstock measuring 8 1/2" x 10". Score it as shown below, following the measurements and the red lines.

Watch how this box card goes together with my video tutorial, including how to prepare pieces from the Paper Pumpkin kit.

You can cut the other cardstock layers and Designer Series Paper like this:

Shaded Spruce cardstock:

- 1 1/4" x 9 1/2" (belly band)

- 2 5/8" x 5 1/8" (center panel)

- Two pieces 1 5/8" x 5 1/8" (outside panels)

- Two pieces 1 1/8" x 5 1/8" (inside box side panels)

Designer Series Paper:

- Enjoy the Journey, 2 1/2" x 5" (center panel)

- Two pieces 1 1/2" x 5" (envelope flaps from the Paper Pumpkin kit for outside panels)

- Two pieces 1" x 5" (polka dot card from the Paper Pumpkin kit for the inside box side panels)

Can you imagine the possibilities here? The inside panel would be fun to decorate with lots of different things. Turn it sideways and use the Ready to Ride Suite...a motorcycle across the horizon would be fun. Imagine creating a sky and having butterflies in a couple different sizes flitting through that sky.

A flower garden. Balloons for a bday card. Ack! The possibilities are endless! Excuse me while I head to my studio...

...oh, but oops! I forgot to share what I made with the leftover polka dot card from which I cut off two 1" strips. It's so sweet and unique, and it will be the feature of my next Reel on Instagram, which I'll be sharing on Thursday. See you there!

Happy creating!
