Easy to make fancy cards with boxes inside- BoBunny

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my today's blog post.
Sometimes I get this feeling that a part of crafters needs easy to make projects posts.
It's very tempting to make projects that are complicated and to use all possible tools we have.
But what about the huge part of crafters that just want to make a pretty card or layout with a paper collection and  don't have all fancy tools?
So today I am going to share two cards  (and the video tutorial) for all of crafters who just want to buy one BoBunny paper collection and all they have at home are a craft knife, cutting mat, glue and maybe a score board (also they can score without it too).
So here are two  lovely and easy to make cards with a gift box inside made with Only  You paper collection.

I used both 12*12'' cardstock from Only You collection and the 6*6'' pad, but you can make these cards with 12*12'' cardstock only. The 6*6'' just makes it easier as one of the pieces for the box is exactly 6*6'' size.
 The great thing with this kind of a card is that you can really use the small gift box for a small gift or a few candies. The not so great thing is that you can't mail this card in the envelope, but it's a card to give someone in a person.

So here is  each card for you to see.
The tip for this card is to use the collection title (that you can cut from each and every 12*12'' cardstock sheet) as you title.
 On this card I just tied the thin ribbon around the gift box.

And here is the second card:
For this card I only used 12*12'' cardstock to make a box, so the 6*6'' pad is not a must as you can see.

I made a small video for you and it's not a finished project there, but a sample cut and fold one only.
Here are the measurements for the card:
Basic card- 8 5/8'' *5 5/8''
Second card layer- you need to make it in two layers as BoBunny patterned cardstock is  not very heavy for the card to stand- 8 1/2''*5 1/2''
You first glue the both  basic card and the second layer one over another and then make the rectangle cut as shown in the video.
Box body- 6*6''. Score on 2'' from each side and them 2'' from the top and the bottom. 4 scores on this piece.
Box lid- 3*3''. Score on a bit (just a bit) less then 1/2'' from each side- 4 scores
Hope you liked this card and as the disclosure this is not my own invention of a design. The web is full with these cards and I can't even say who was the first one to share this design on the web. But it's my very first time to make one and I decided to share it with BoBunny blog readers and it's sure the first one make with Only You new collection.
