Default Need Help Finding a Box....

Anybody have a source for a stationary box that will hold a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card? I've been looking and can't find one anywhere. I'd prefer to buy a few but a template would be appreciated too.

If you have a Scor-Pal, you can make your own so easily! For a 5 1/2 square card, I would make the bottom of the box 1/4" bigger, add 1 1/2" to each side, so I would end up with an 8 3/4" square. Then I would score the bottom 1 1/2" in from each side. For the box top, I would add 1/8", making it 5 7/8" square, add 1" to side, making the top 7 7/8" square. Then I would score the top 1" in from each side. I've made tons of these, but wouldn't want to do it without my Scor-Pal. There are several good tutorials on the Scor-Pal website, which will help illustrate my dimensions above. HTH!
