VIDEO: Card Boxes

Hello! The other day I showed a couple small cards I made and promised to show how to make a box to hold them. So today’s video shows how to create two different size card boxes with the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board.

(Check the thumbnails at the end of this post for supplies used.)

These card boxes are so fast and easy to make! I used the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board… which is intended for creating envelopes of any size. However, I used it to make boxes! The video shows how to make a box for A2 cards (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″) and envelopes and also for 4-bar cards (3 1/2″ x 4 7/8″) and envelopes.

Here are some other links for you:

(By the way – as always – I wasn’t asked to promote this product. I just bought it, used it and liked it!)

  1. Aww, I just bought one of these for my friend – I wonder if she would let me borrow it – LOL

    Wonderful boxes 🙂

  2. Thanks so very much, Jennifer. I’ve made sets of cards, but didn’t have a box to put them in. How many cards can you put inside the box?

  3. I love how you always think “outside the box”!! (Sorry, couldn’t resist). 😛 But you do have a great knack for enabling! 🙂 This is really wonderful, thanks for sharing!

  4. What a great tutorial and I went over to see your other video on making envelopes and now I know I have to get one of those by Memory Keeper.
    When I do a card that is too big for all the envelopes I have I have to make one by hand and it takes me quite awhile to do it. You made these boxes and envelopes so fast that I now want to get one. It is a great tool and you make it look so easy…That’s the skill you have LOL

    thank’s Jennifer for another great tutorial.

  5. This is probably one of your best videos, not to memtion ideas! You definitely are a true entrepreneur! This is perfect for those cards that have large, thick embellishments. I always send my cards through the mail, so I have to make them postal friendly. Now I can “expand” my creativity and embellish away! I’m just sorry that I didn’t think of it myself. Your whole series of “inks” is my next most favorite set of videos. Thanks again. You inspire my creativity more than anyone out there in the card making business.

  6. Thanks Jennifer for this great video. I love the 4 bar size- it is something a little different! I am going to put this info to good use and make some boxes to have on hand!

  7. You are AMAZING! (When do you find time to sleep?) I too love my envelope maker and up to now I have purchased acetate boxes for my gifts of cards. Love your idea better.

  8. Thanks for showing us how to do a box for cards!!! Very cool!! I have one of these and love it!!! I love how you are able to think of other uses for things. Thank you for sharing your creativity with us!!!

  9. Great video! Thanx! I am wondering how to make these boxes without one of these wonderful tools. I love making envelopes.

  10. Jennifer, can I just say… I think you are awesome! I just love your ideas and how generously you share them with all of us.

    I don’t have a Memory Keepers envelope board, but after watching your wonderful video…I was able to figure out how to do this with my Martha Stewart Score bored. It takes a bit longer because you have to cut the notches yourself…but it works great too.

    Thanks again for the inspiration!

  11. Thanks so much for this instructional video, Jennifer. It is so nice to see an additional use for a piece of equipment that I already have. You are such a fabulous teacher and your instructions have tremendous clarity and practicality. Kudos!

  12. I love smaller cards and make 3″x3″ card sets for friends, but I have difficulty making boxes to hold them. The 4 bar option is a perfect solution…and I just got my We R Memory Keepers envelope punch board last month so I am ready to create. Thank you!

  13. love this video. What a great idea for gift giving. Can you please let me know how you would recommend sealing the box. thank you so much!

  14. I love having a box I can customize when giving cards as a gift. I already have the envelope maker so thanks for a secondary use.

  15. So glad you gave this box its own video. I actually went out and got the envelope punch board after watching your favorite things video. I adore mine. I think I use it more for boxes and bows then I do for actually making envelopes. Thanks so much for these videos on the dimensions & thank you for keeping it to simple easy to remember dimensions too. I have a hard time sometimes with the 4 and 1/8 and that sort of thing when making a box.

  16. Jennifer:

    Generally what weight of cardstock or paper do you use to make your envelopes?
    I love the box. Such a neat way to present cards as a gift.


  17. Thanks for the great tutorial. I love my envelope punch board and am now looking forward to making a card box! Thank you again, Jennifer!!

  18. I am always on the lookout for other uses for products to get the most for my money. This is terrific since I love, love, love stationery, it is a bonus to be able to use something I already have to make packaging for them! Yippee Skippy!
