Step 1: cut your choice in colored cardstock to a 6-1/2" x 6-1/2" piece. I will explain why that size in the next step.
I wanted my box to fit my note card size of 3-1/2" x 5", but wanted the box to be a little shorter so the note cards could be seen from the outside. I went with a 3-1/2" square size to start with. Now when wanting to make a box to hold cards and envelopes, think about how thick you need it then add that onto your cutting and scoring measurements. My thickness is only a 1/2", so I cut my cardstock to 6-1/2" square.
now you are going to once again add that 1/2" measurement and slide your cardstock to the 3-1/2" line, punch and score.
Step 5: Fold on all the scored lines except for the one side that is gonna be your top of the box. Now I would normally use redline tape on boxes, but now since we have the Fast Fuse adhesive (its the bomb!) its not as easy to show you where I put the adhesive at, but you can kinda see the shimmer off the right hand side flap of the box. If you can't, I have the bone folder and scissor tips pointing to the two flaps where you need adhesive.
On the inside of my box, I have four matching note cards, stamped with simple snowflakes. There is also room for four envelopes.
