Envelope Gift Box

by Valita Reynolds

Create a box to give away bulky cards.


  • Scor-Pal™, or other scoring tool
  • One A4 Sheet of cardstock (8 1/2" x 11 5/8")
  • Scor-Tape™, or other strong adhesive
  • Scissors
  • Ribbon
  • Stamps


  1. Step 1

    Score the 8 1/2" side of the cardstock at 1" and 7 1/2".

  2. Step 2

    Turn the card on the horizontal and score at 2", 3", 7 1/2" and 8 1/2".

  3. Step 3

    Fold all score lines.

  4. Step 4

    Cut in at the 1" line on all four scores added in step 2.

  5. Step 5

    Have the wider end facing down. This will be the pocket.

    Fold in the 2 small flaps and place Scor-Tape&trade on them. Place adhesive on the two larger flaps below these also.

  6. Step 6

    Remove tape liner and stick the smaller flaps up and attach to the inside edges of the box.

  7. Step 7

    Bring up the bottom and wrap around the edges of the box.

  8. Step 8

    Make sure this lines up with the edge of the box.

  9. Step 9

    Fold in the small flaps and wrap down around the box to close it.

  10. Step 10

    The box will hold a bulky card easily.

  11. Step 11

    Hold closed with a ribbon and decorate to match your card.

Beautiful box, however, HOW you made that flower is a " I MUST KNOW" how to do. Could you do a tutorial of it?

Hi there,
I have a card class on Tuesday's and we just did the Envelope Gift Box as a project last night. When I downloaded my email re the "Envelope Gift Box" from splitcoaststampers my instructions asked for one 8 1/2 x 11 piece of cardstock, but when I downloaded off the gallery the instructions asked for A4 8 1/2 x 11 5/8. Why the difference? I felt foolish in front of my friends as theirs was working out different than mine. We did complete the project, but were wondering why two differenct instructions.
Hopefully you will let me know why.

Hi Heather,

When I put the instructions into the tutorial, I messed up and wrote down 8 1/2" x 11" because I thought that's what A4 paper size is. But Valita, our Australian guest writer corrected me that the A4 paper size is 8 1/4" x 11 5/8". So we corrected it in the tutorial. Sorry about the confusion.
